    I worked at The Climate Corp full-time

    Pros

    The Climate Corporate is in a unique space and position to innovate in global agriculture by using big data. The company was acquired by a notable biotech company...Monsanto...which was a significant exit and validated the innovation that happened with Weatherbill...then to be known as The Climate Corporation (oh, if I could have been a fly on the wall at that board meeting when the company was renamed...I digress). Back to pros: Climate Corp now has huge backing as a subsidiary of Monsanto to make significant strides bringing innovation to the large ag industry. The science behind the modeling and advisory tools is cutting edge with leading scientists and Phds in their industry. If you are in that niche than you have to look at Climate as a potential employer. This is where you can "leave your mark on the world", a DNA statement of Climate. Overall, there are brilliant people at Climate all trying to leave their mark and innovate. However, there is a lack of strategic direction and company culture to perpetuate success beyond data and science (great work team) throughout the company. As a result the core dynamic of the company culture is at risk.

    On to superficial pros: the office space is great. beautiful view. modern. california fresh fare on every menu for free (well, paid for by the company..you have to compete on this level for engineering talent in SFO of course), beer on tap, company sponsored get togethers, etc, etc. A great work skin of a work environment. It keeps the pulse beating..

    Cons

    But to feel a pulse you need to have a caring, generous and team centric environment that supports and celebrates success in each individual and team. I found all these components missing from the Climate culture. Although there are bright, talented, sociable, and I know, very caring people there, the day to day environment is super negative and does not support ideas/ideation but rather is abrasive and is defensive in response to new ideas. This is an environment that the executive leadership has established and will be harder to change the longer it lasts. As Climate began its journey to acquisition they filled the senior leadership team with bodies, some more capable than others, which have now proven to be ummm..average, especially from an business operations component. Climate was unable to perpetuate operational strategy throughout the company which leaves is best assets (middle management) constantly re-directing to try to meet the ambiguous strategy of the execs. More leadership and decisions should be put into the hands of the Directors and managers that have the data to be direct and transparent, innovate, inspire, find the impossible, and leave a mark on the world!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You're visionary. Care about the people that want to and believe in bringing the Climate mission to the forefront of the agriculture industry. You're leaking amazing talent as a lack of fundamental structure. Good luck. #godspeed
