I have been working at Monsanto Company as a contractor (more than an year)

Pros

I 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.

Cons

Like 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 ManagementAdvice

Stop 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.
