    Current Employee - IT Infrastructure in Saint Louis, MO

    I have been working at Monsanto Company

    Pros

    --Salary
    --Benefits
    --Friendships
    --A really terrific severance package if you're able to tough it out
    --The reign of terror once over IT Infrastructure has been moved back to Commercial
    --The incompetent 'senior leader' and over opinionated 'soccer mom' both quit shortly after getting new leadership

    Cons

    --Reviews based upon how much your manager likes you, not what you are able to deliver
    --Hiring based upon enthics/gender and not qualifications
    --Interchangeable staff--'move every 3 years'
    --No true work-life balance or fit
    --Extreme dating scene! So many married, dating, or divorced couples
    --Very short term focused. Does not look at the long term impact

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get real feedback, from your employees and your customers, not customed and tailored such that you only hear what you want to hear.

    Current Employee - Senor Software Developer in Saint Louis, MO

    I have been working at Monsanto Company

    Pros

    Work/Life Balance is excellent. Management is very accommodating when family issues require a change in work schedule.
    Excellent benefits package.
    Very competent coworkers with a minimum of drama for a company this size.

    Cons

    Multiple recent reorganizations, with and without cuts, are a drain on productivity and morale.
    There is not a clearly communicated advancement path for technical positions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Realize that reorganizations and cuts not only impact those that are cut, but also have a huge morale and productivity impact on those that remain. In the future, try to not to hire so many so fast during the good times, so we aren't forced to cut as much during the lean times.
