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

Pros

People are friendly and help you to start with the job. Its a liberal environment to work at, without too many restrictions.

Cons

New ideas take much longer time to be implemented. frequent change in organization hierarchy and too many small teams that need a lot of collaboration.

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

    Pros

    They have really nice facilities where I worked: gym, cafeteria, etc. Work I had was engaging and satisfying. A wide variety of facilities (labs, test farms, seed processing plants) nearby to tour.

    Cons

    Some of the old boys told me hiring and layoffs occur very cyclically. I saw a round of layoffs begin in the three months I was working

    I have been working at Monsanto Company

    Pros

    If you like politics, work here! This is the only way to be successful here.

    Cons

    Must be a "yes" man/woman to be successful - not allowed to challenge status quo. Bonus' and goals are a joke and mean nothing. Your bonus is driven by how much and how well you socialize with the leadership team- that's what they told me!!!! They have gotten away from hiring real people managers. H.R. Allows bullying to continue to take place. I'll have a new boss in 6 months, and 6 months after that- we can only be set up for success, huh? But I'm glad these people decide my livelihood.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't forget our historical culture. Fast growth has caused leadership to lose sight of the competencies and their human assets.
