I have been working at Monsanto Company

Pros

-Nice co-workers
-Interesting work
-Interesting industry
-Work that makes a difference

Cons

-Horrible career pathing
-Complete lack of diversity in the workforce, management
-Promotions only within certain closed circle networks, preference always given to Washington University grads.
=Promotion seldom if ever based on talent, almost always on networking and "knowing someone"
-Most management jobs not even posted

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Human Resources needs to be strengthened and overhauled. Much greater emphasis on diversity training (Monsanto let go their diversity officer). More of an open system for promotions, based on merit, not on which university you graduated from or who you golf with.

    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.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue trying to understand the challenges of your business from the information technology perspective
