Supportive environment amongst highly talented, highly motivated, diverse workforce.

Research Scientist (Current Employee) Saint Louis, MO

ProsCutting edge science. Work/life balance. Opportunity to achieve high potential.

ConsSome areas have a reluctance to report bad news up through the hierarchy. When layoffs happen, the cuts are drastic and often fall disproportionately on older, more highly paid workers. Those who remain are saddled with too much work. People are not held accountable for absenteeism. Sometimes quality takes a back seat to cost savings measures. People are not held accountable for strategic mistakes that cost customers.

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't allow cost saving to dominate at the expense of quality. Provide more support for ideas that come from individual contributors rather than from management down. Fire the decision-makers that raised prices on Roundup and seeds so much in 2008-2009.
