    Great Place to work, but be aware of the rotten apples!

    I worked at Monsanto Company

    Pros

    Great benefits and pay. Most roles are empowered to work with little direction and thus you have some freedom to achieve success in your own way. Most in the company are passionate about the customer and innovating new products resulting in this company being a market leader.

    Cons

    Be aware of the manager you work for, thus looking for the bad apple in the basket. Most managers are awesome, but a hand full are only concerned about their own destiny and ensuring they can balance diversity objectives. Make sure you network well within to offset this issue.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leaders and HR should really strive to allow people managers the right % of time to manage people vs. loading them up on special projects or committees. A lot of good talent has left the company, as managers did not recognize their strenghts or made the political environment unnavigatable.

    I worked at Monsanto Company

    Pros

    The pay was great for the work that needed to be accomplished. It had a greatly friendly atmosphere that made me want to go to work day in and day out. Leadership was never hard to come by because everyone was willing to go above and beyond their paygrade to help out.

    Cons

    Long twelve hour shifts were tiring but necessary to complete the necessary tasks. Although they were flexible with hours, it seemed that upper management needed to take some notes from other established companys.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you plan on laying people off one shouldn't give the false representation of how long the job will last.
