I have been working at Monsanto Company

Pros

- Highly talented and self-motivated group of people i have ever worked with (employees and contractors)
- Good benefits
- love to come to work every day!

Cons

- work life balance will take a hit if you are not keeping it in check
- slackers are given multiple oppurtunities to prove they are worth hanging on to and this does not help the morale of the other high performers
- promotions - don't expect it untill you have put in atleast 4-5 years and have a really good direct lead and a good relationship with his lead as well. (hate these Politics)
- salary raises , too few and too little

Advice to ManagementAdvice

stop the continous re-org already!
when you ask for feedback especialyl for performance reviews- consider peer feedback instead of only the leads feedback

    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

    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.
