I worked at Syngenta as a contractor (More than 5 years)

Pros

Syngenta offers monetary bonuses for all types of accomplishments including staying healthy, meeting sales quotas, and just doing a great job.

Cons

Syngenta uses a large pool of contract labor and seems to have a high turnover rate

Advice to Management

Hire people permanently instead of training them and then letting them go. There is too much time, money, and effort being wasted when retention of good employees would better suit the bottom line.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Syngenta full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very competitive pay, outdoor work environment, relaxed management. If you're a hard worker opportunities for additional work, late into the season, will be presented. I found this work to be far more enjoyable and relaxing than any factory job, so if you need seasonal work don't pass a job like this up.

    Cons

    Seasonal work, little to do during bad weather. Some may not like the fact that you work with people of all ages; meaning high school students, to individuals in their forties.

    Advice to Management

    None


  2. "An excellent place to grow and to contribute - less hierarchy than most companies"

    I have been working at Syngenta full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Hands down, the best reason to work at Syngenta is the people. The 2nd best reason is the sector and the ambition of the company to address the growing issue of feeding the planet.

    Cons

    Lots to do - sometimes not the most amount of prioritization coming from upper mgmt. Always adding new things but not taking away the old things.

    Advice to Management

    You have to go out and see where the rubber meets the road, a little more often. Do not stay in your offices.
