Unless you are a scientist, don't bother coming here

I worked at Monsanto Company full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Better than average benefits in St. Louis, which is a sub-standard city to live in. Cheap, but sub-standard.

Cons

Lots of boys clubs, promotions to those who've been there the longest, not who work the hardest. Oh yeah, and if you don't have a science degree prepared to be treated like your job is "not as cool". Be prepared to endure yearly recurring (and boring as hell) training materials that are obviously geared at lab people.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Please ask yourselves: How come if you manage to attract all the best talent around, why happened to make it become the greatest revolving door? Low retention, decreasing loyalties, people fleeing left and right.

    I worked at Monsanto Company as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Good pay & relocation
    worked in the lab, did real experiments and real lab techniques
    excellent hours

    Cons

    Highly random which division you get into- I think that I was lucky in my placement and the work I did was an excellent experience

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The relocation was not sensible- I feel I got paid too much for the relocation I did, and thats just bleeding money for no reason.
