Productive and fun place to work
Assistant Scientist (Former Employee) –  Research Triangle Park, NCApril 24, 2018
Friendly team to work with, kind and understanding supervisors are the norm here. Work hard and get rewarded is the law of the land. Having an espresso machine in the cafe was a nice touch.

Not a good place to work for as a receptionist
RECEPTIONIST (Former Employee) –  not applicableApril 11, 2018
learned nothing, boring job, but made the best of it. There was never any room for advancement if you only carry a HS diploma. They never hire receptionist as full time employees, only a a contractor.

Great Place to Work!
Production & Supply Finance Analyst (Former Employee) –  Greensboro, NCMarch 29, 2018
Co-workers were great, and the atmosphere was fairly stress-free.When I was there, many positions were transferring to Uruguay, so I got to meet some awesome people. I worked to teach them my duties and they picked up very quickly.

Good ol' boy management style at remote sites
Manager (Current Employee) –  Washington StateMarch 28, 2018
Good place to start but not to stay long term. Yearly performance requires someone be tag with poor yearly performance regardless if it's true. Some sites have constant turn-over due to lack of promotional opportunities. Management has a get-it-done attitude. The company implemented a computer software program that add a ton of work to your day if you follow it precisely but completion expectations remain the same.
Pros
60+ hour work weeks during harvest
Cons
Constant reorganization

Hard work but rewarding seeing crops grow.
Field Worker (Former Employee) –  Nyssa, ORMarch 7, 2018
I was essentially a field hand on experiment fields. It was a lot of hard work, but the managers were great guys and seeing crops grow each day and knowing I was part of creating better yields for both farmers and consumers was a rewarding feeling.

Pollenator and detasseler (Former Employee) –  14658 E 925 North Rd, Bloomington, IL 61705February 17, 2018
Great place to work although it is only a seasonal job with no benefits. I would highly recommend a high school student for this job. The best way to get a nice tan, a little exercise and some funny money for summer activities.
Pros
working with friends. get a nice tan. playing cards during lunch break
Cons
it's HOT. the fields seem like a workout.

Legacy driven with constant change
Trait Manager (Former Employee) –  IowaFebruary 7, 2018
The people are generally the best thing with Syngenta. Change is constant and planning is usually lacking- especially with people planning. The compensation is good and the culture is easy paced but change seems to be constant.

Not the best
PRODUCTION TECHNICIAN (Former Employee) –  Lone Tree, IAJanuary 31, 2018
If you are right out of college and want paid well to do nothing then this is great for you. They have numerous temp employees that they assign to the full time people so the full time people can sit back and do nothing. I saw management walk by several times and see a group standing around laughing and talking while the temps were working hard and never once said a word to them. I was full time maintenance but was still labeled a Production Tech because corporate doesn't acknowledge a maintenance department on the seeds side so they don't have to pay the higher wages for trade work. There is no chance for advancement and when reviews come once a year they have a rule that at least no less than 3 people will get unsatisfactory reviews. No job on earth should tell their employees that.
Pros
close to home
Cons
way to many to list
