Pros

Benefits are good though nothing special to the rest of the big players in the industry. In some groups you have a lot of autonomy. The ability to work from home when you need to for whatever reason can be a big plus.

Cons

Salaries were not what they should have been but that might have since changed. Some of the leadership is less than forthright. Monsanto has an attitude that they are the best but a lot of farmers do not agree with that assessment. So a job working with farmers can sometimes be difficult because they are not fans of Monsanto.

Advice to Management

You are not special.

    Pros

    This is a great company to get your career started.

    Cons

    Bewared of the politics and untrained middle management.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house in your middle management area. Not all high performers should advance to management. Start promoting people that genuinely like people and are positive motivators to help people grow thier careers. Start valuing the people from within and question performers that go from strong to moderate. Most likely it's because of the manager that they work under.
