Corporate Risk Manager (Former Employee) –  Bâle, BSJanuary 10, 2020
Mon expérience chez Syngenta à été très enrichissante mais extrêmement stressante.
Les attentes ne sont pas clairement exprimées et les constantes réductions de budget n'aident pas aux réalisations.

Great company facing some issues.
Senior Legal Counsel (Former Employee) –  BaselSeptember 18, 2019
Either you know what you get, or you want to master challenges each day, and then it may get difficult, because not all of your co-workers may have the same desire to go the one additional step.

Views employee as a cost not an asset
Supply Chain Planner (Current Employee) –  Kanton Basel-StadtJuly 27, 2018
Short term minded in cost savings. Management lacking vision and support for their employees. String along employees leading them on to believe there are many opportunities in career advancement. Company not realistic in career development. Often feels like win-lose rather than win-win. You as an employee make all the sacrifices and even when you pay your dues they do not fulfill their side of the bargain.

Standort Basel ist auf dem absteigenden Ast
Senior Project Manager (Former Employee) –  Basel, BSApril 24, 2018
In den letzten 10 Jahren hat ein Kulturwandel stattgefunden hin zu hire and fire Mentalität.
Im Management findet man kaum noch Schweizer die einst das Unternehmen gross gemacht haben, aber dafür US/GB Seilschaften die sich gegenseitig Jobs zuschaufeln.
Mitarbeiter sind in den Augen des Managements keine Grundlage des Erfolgs, sondern Kostenfaktoren.
Es wird ausgelagert in billigere Locations was nur geht. Nur das Management kassiert immer höhere Löhne.
Leistung zählt weniger als schöner Schein und Beziehungen.
Pros
Schöne, kürzlich erneuerte Büros in Basel
Cons
Viele unmotivierte oder verunsicherte Mitarbeiter, viele verlassen Syngenta freiwillig

Truly global environment

A truly global company that provides opportunity to stretch outside of comfort zone, particularly good for one with initiative who learns quickly and functions well in a multicultural environment.

Young and dynamic company pushing through challenging times
Finance BP (Current Employee) –  Kanton Basel-StadtJanuary 24, 2018
Many young and international people

Career opportunities dependent on business situation

Dynamic environment, many process changing, gives opportunities to improve but also creates certain level of inefficiency

Interesting market, global overview, good working balance
Business Analyst (Former Employee) –  Basel, BSDecember 13, 2017
Good atmosphere and very pleasant collegues with top experience in the agro-chemical business.
Moving jobs away from Basel has massively impacted the overall working environment where there are not many opportunities to advance career - especially in Basel HQ.

Ma journée de travail ...
