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

Pros

Decent pay, nice co-workers, prompt responses to emails even from higher ups, they care about the employees, all you can drink coffee/soda/chocolate milk, fun outside work activities, lots of encouragement and constructive criticism

Cons

Stale environment, a lot of secrecy, have to deal with the stigma of GMOs, lots of training that may or may not have anything to do with your position

Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My experience, in a field position outside of company headquarters, is that anyone outside St. Louis is on their own.

    I have been working at Monsanto Company full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Insurance, vacation (if you can take it), 401k match, pension.

    Cons

    Work/life balance. Summer hours exist only for St. Louis employees. High expections without the tools needed to get the job done without many OT hours. Frequent reorgs that are made without the employees or customers in mind. A very healthy propoganda machine for both internal and external customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    People need to stay in their jobs long enough to understand them and how they impact the business as a whole. Employees in the field can't keep track of key contacts because positions change so frequently. Please encourage people to communicate outside their silo. Matrix organization allows employees to escape accountability -- exacerbated by frequent job hopping.
