Production & Supply Finance Analyst-Supply Chain (Former Employee) – Greensboro, NC – July 26, 2017
Worked as a contractor @ Syngenta. People are friendly, helpful, and everyone works as a team. Documented processes are very important. I enjoyed going to work for the 4 months I worked as a contractor. I could not have asked for a better assignment! Management is actually in tune with the employees.
I enjoyed working with and helping train the Uruguay team for the transition.
Truck Dispatcher/Sales Specialist (Former Employee) – Bay, AR – July 14, 2017
The crew at Syngenta was like family. Everybody was so fun to work with. I learned so much from everyone on staff. I actually regret leaving Syngenta, but my position was only temporary. I would definitely encourage others to work here.
Business Analyst (Current Employee) – Research Triangle Park, NC – July 6, 2017
The work life balance is great at Syngenta and the people there are fantastic to work with. Tons of really smart people that truly love what they are doing. Management is lacking and there is no clear vision. Process improvement is horrible and cannot commit to staying focus on the task at hand.
Stressful not honest or fair but safe,requires lots of patience... Most supervisors are 2faced and break all safety rules, they don't lead by example
Laborer/Operator (Former Employee) – Pasco, WA – July 1, 2017
Gotta be very patient and know how to take criticism and ready to take late notices and willing to step out your job description and willingness to work pass your set hours. Syngenta never keeps their word and treat the office workers better than warehouse workers and try to make it up by holiday parties. Still a job to get a little cash but not to get permanent. I recommend it for for a learning experience but not for a career. I worked from 2013 to 2017 off and on and every time I went back nothing ever really changed except the main Sups and saftey committee I worked just for a quick buck but regretted it every time I went back but I'm the person who starts something and have to finish it. Not to mention you don't have a choice when it's the only place hiring and it's a easy job to get.
Safety is first priority but Supervisors don't practice what they preach or promote
Not honest and poor pay and late notices and don't work with your life schedule
Database Administrator (Former Employee) – Research Triangle Park, NC – June 25, 2017
Project Managers are known to make bad plans as do not consult with technical team working on the project and make ridiculous plans which are not achievable. They publish same plans and expect us to meet the project mile stones without understanding that goals they set are un-realistic. Also, there goes a lot behind the screens which lead to fire people to safe-guard their interests
None, just avoid this company.
Not a place to work, unrealistic goals, Unfit project managers
Project Coordinator (Current Employee) – Slater, IA – June 16, 2017
As a contractor I don't get any benefit besides experience working here but I enjoy my immediate work group. There is a big gap between full time people and contractors and Syngenta is not ashamed to point it out.
Production Supervisor (Current Employee) – Pasco, WA – June 12, 2017
Pretty good place to worked have met a lot of good people here i enjoy my work schedule for the most part although most of the time we are under staffed largely from high turn over rate so it makes are jobs a lot more demanding

Packager Techinican (Current Employee) – St. Gabriel, LA – May 19, 2017
This company is very poor in management. Us worker's don't get any recognizing. They have poor understanding when it comes to the employee's. We have no say so about nothing.We stay getting threatened to get terminated.
Pollinator (Former Employee) – Clinton, IL – May 19, 2017
I had a good time there. it was a summer job that i had gotten because it was above minimum wage and it was also a learning experience. i'm always wiling to learn and that's why i enjoyed my time at syngenta.
