I have been working at Monsanto Company full-timeRecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEORecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEO
I really like my team and my manager. We have wonderful benefits - and the schedule is flexible as long as you produce quality work. We have a special schedule in the summer that allows employees to take off on Friday afternoon (as long as you make up those 4 hours sometime during the week) and we have the week between Christmas and New Years completely off - and everyone actually logs off that week to spend time with their families. It's also really exciting to be a part of an innovative and cutting edge digital agriculture company that's focused on finding sustainable solutions to help feed the planet - I think it's much more rewarding than working for an online retailer, search engine, or social media company. The people here are very bright and I'm extremely proud to work here!!
Our corporate reputation can be a real challenge. People that come from a science or agriculture background typically value Monsanto and they understand the positive impact that we are making in this space. There is a small, but very vocal group of people that are misinformed and they are spreading incorrect information about the company - and people that aren't knowledgeable in this area are at risk of believing the misinformation because our industry hasn't done a very good job of educating the average consumer. I'm a very non-combative person so it's very frustrating for me when I come across someone that aggressively wants to debate with me - it makes me very uncomfortable.
Advice to Management
Get more creative with educating the average consumer - don't just invite them to "join the conversation" in the commercials - give them some valuable factoids in digestible and understandable chunks. Some of the recent employee videos have been really good, - it would be neat if there was a virtual Chesterfield tour (minus any proprietary info) that the public could access. I've taken the tour several times and it's amazing and extremely informative.
