I have been working at Monsanto Company

Pros

The problems that need to be solved are as fun and challenging as you'll anywhere else. If you are in a research organization, you have extreme flexibility and resources to create solutions

Cons

The Research Organizations are not IT Shops, and the difficulty to communicate about technological limitations and paradigms while balancing project work is at times a strain.

    I have been working at Monsanto Company

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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!
