    I worked at Syngenta (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It is a great place to work... Employees have great access to information, training, relationship building and communication with upper level management.

    Cons

    Downside to working with Syngenta is that many of their employees are on contract, therefore it is inconsistency when dealing with their customer base and employee output.

    Advice to Management

    Hire full time employees. It will make a happy customer. I will miss all the people I have worked with and the relationships I have formed.

    Pros

    Interesting research. Top tier research employees. State of the art equipment and reagents. Excellent research budget.

    Downsized without warning though logical results in damaged employees. Poorly trained management team leads at our site. Competitive environment that pegged groups against one another.

    Stress deteriorates morale. Pushing employees for results leads to poorly designed experiments that may produce biased results.
