Good Company for entry level employees

Senior Manager (Current Employee) Oxnard, CA

ProsGood benifits
Global networking
Multi business divisions
Vegetable Division is good to be in, if your in HR.
Cross Training
Good to get in if your a new college grad looking for a good CV builder.

ConsCompensation is below industry standards.
Lack of yearly salary increases, you get about 2% , if your lucky.
Politics , too many slogans that management doesn't follow, just take down all the propaganda posters.
Too many re-org's and not retaining the good hard workers.
Most of the executives in my division are from other division of Monsanto and have a hard time understanding the business, since is is very complex and not Da Row crops.
The DPR yearly review system is really about if your boss likes you or not!

Advice to Senior ManagementSpend more time knowing about the business before taking on more side projects and consuming the time of others focused on driving the business. Try and nail down the org structure for the Veg business and stop making changing every other week....its been 5 years and we still cant get it right!
