    I have been working at Syngenta full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Syngenta has a great culture. The atmosphere is professional and business casual. The people are great to work with and respectful. The company is a solid performer and is continually improving and growing. I personally enjoy the chances we have to work with other cultures around the world. The main benefit to working here is that it is big enough to allow opportunities in many areas. When you want a change, you can move within the organization without losing benefits and starting over.

    Cons

    The global nature of the company is a great positive, but it also means you're not 100% on your own. Collaboration and teamwork are key to success.

    Advice to Management

    I am excited about the strategy and new ideas coming forward! A big thank you for the great support and energy propelling us forward!

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

    Pros

    Wonderful people, very interesting projects, good flexibility and culture. People are all very helpful and the company culture makes it easy to jump into a new area or team and get up to speed.

    Cons

    Sometimes more bureaucracy and process than is necessary that can slow progress down and feel cumbersome. While some established process is good, there are times where the set model can feel restrictive.

    Advice to Management

    Know and understand the skills of your people and let them be more free to come up with solutions.
