    I worked at Monsanto Company full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Benefits are excellent. There are some great folks and great scientists there. Most jobs allow flexibility in schedule, although working overtime is an implied mandation.

    Cons

    Lots of people fighting to get there way to the top and backstabbing folks in the process. Terrible managers! Known several great employees to lose their jobs after becoming injuried as a result of being overworked. The percentage of people going out on disability and then ending up laid off or terminated is extrememely high! HR is absolutely awful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't put people in management positions just because of degrees or because they are great scientists; management takes people skills! Stand behind you employees when they get injured.

    I worked at Monsanto Company full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Great pay, can move far, especially if you are female or a minority. Must be able to play the political games.

    Cons

    Highly political - success is based on who you work for and their success. Very PC - embraced the mobile workforce shortly after 401Ks became available (to the point of distributing "how to write your resume" booklets). Very diversity oriented (e.g. White males need not apply).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    High the best people you can find and overpay them to stay. One A+ player is worth 3-4 C players.
