    I worked at Monsanto Company full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Monsanto is doing amazing work, at the cutting edge of science, with the potential to enhance the lives of millions of farmers across the world.

    Cons

    More than a global company, Monsanto is stll an American company with offices in many global locations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be good to work on becoming truly global as well as improving both gender and cultural diversity, especially at headquarters.

    Pros

    Good benefits package - Vacation, medical, 401k, holidays. There's also a fitness center, a daycare, and some great walking trails on campus.

    Cons

    My director polices social networking to tell employees how their political views should be, how wrong they are if they aren't in alignment with him, and then uses this information during reviews. If you're political views align with him, you get a good review. If your views are different than his, you get a bad review.

    Cuts corners on the work deliverable, delivers a shoddy product, then works to cover up the mistakes and problems instead of just taking a little more time and doing things right the first time.

    Expects employees to work 60-80 hour work weeks while he leaves every day at 4:00PM.

    Goes psycho when he finds out an employee might be looking for another job outside of the company.

    Brags endlessly about his house, his car, his vacations, blah, blah, blah.

    And don't get me started about his good buddy/manager above him. He follows her from department to department as she moves through positions in the company. I have to ask, how many different IT verticals will she get to ruin before senior leadership realizes how bad this is to work for?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't just listen to what your direct reports tell you. You're not getting the full truth on how things are really going. Get out into the rank and file. Do a random lunch invitation to the team leads and individual contributors and ask pointed questions about what's going on in the organization. It'll help you get the truth and then maybe you can turn things around.
