    I worked at Syngenta full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are good. Advancement opportunities are good if you are willing to re-locate.

    Cons

    Very political. If you are not part of the inner circle, your life will be miserable. Senior management moves around, so in a lot of cases they are not experts in the field they are guiding. Constant change without good communication. Very corporate with a great deal of reporting requirements, which causes micro managing. No life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to those that really know the industry you are in, set a direction, and let your employees be successful.
