    Pros

    Good 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.

    Cons

    Compensation 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 Management

    Spend 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!


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

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Some 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 Management

    Don'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.
