Pros

In the science divisions at Monsanto you will work with world class researchers on interesting projects for commercialization. You will also work with many different disciplines on project teams. Great opportunities for development.

Cons

Work does not shut off, e-mails will come all the time and all through the weekend. There is a very strong work ethic to get the job done there, but it makes it hard to take downtime and vacation time.

    Pros

    Innovative work, fun co-workers, and an ever changing business landscape. The campus is also a nature area, so it is really nice during the spring, summer and fall. Some more well established managers have a wealth of information and willingness to share.

    Cons

    There are two classes of workers; those who do the work, and the managers who go to meetings and take credit for it. Those with skillsets marketable to other companies will find staying engaged at Monsanto a challenge. Employees must meet with managers before applying for jobs online so it makes tracking who is and isn't getting development difficult at best. Matrixed organization makes decision making a slow and tedious process. Job postings take forever to fill as HR is basically absent in the company and has little to no authority, no tracking on compliance in hiring pratices. Little to no diversity of people or ideas, though it looks like they would like to change that, if HR was more robust.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Empower HR, staff it and abide by the policies you create. Do real work to create a diverse workforce rather than fill out surveys for magazine to make it look like you are. Hold managers accountable in their DPR for developing their employees.

    Pros

    Most people at Monsanto care a great deal about their jobs and co-workers. It is generally a very welcoming company that values hard work and dedication.

    Cons

    Movement and advancement throughout the company is fairly difficult depending on your background and what job functions you can perform. Some managers are much better than others at developing their teams and providing career advice.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend more time getting to know the work styles and interests of your team members to better facilitate work load/projects.
