Ok for contractors

Research Associate (Current Employee) Oxnard, CA

ProsI was lucky to work in a good department with nice people. The pay is decent for contractors and everyone is really nice with diverse backgrounds. Lots of freedom to manage your own time.

ConsLike most companies in the industry today, Monsanto hires a lot of contractors (especially young people trying to get a foot in the door) to cut costs (even though the work is essential part of the company function). They do not keep contractors more than a couple years, if you are lucky enough to last that long. Also, there are a lot of "holidays" and half days that you may be forced to take off, so expect to make significantly less a year than your hourly wage suggests.

Advice to Senior ManagementStop playing the contractor game and allow those who prove themselves to become full employees so you don't have to rehire and re-train new contractors every year and so that company will retain valued and knowledgeable employees into the future.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Overall good company to work for, but prepare yourself for a world of politics to go with it.

    Cost Analyst (Former Employee) Saint Louis, MO

    I worked at Monsanto Company full-time for more than 3 years


    Pros: Competitive pay, excellent benefits, lots of opportunities for advancement. Cons: Tendency to work long hours, and lots of political games (the company calls this "networking"). No… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
