Good people, good benefits, lousy management.

Workstation Engineer (Former Employee)
Saint Louis, MO

ProsGood benefits, company is doing well, nice people. The campus is nice. It's a global company.

ConsManagement keeps information very close. Management is backed by their seniors unconditionally, no matter how bad they screw up. Favorites are blatantly played. The smart people who should be promoted (no, I'm not thinking of myself) aren't because they don't go golfing with the CIO or go to happy hours after work.

Advice to Senior ManagementStop thinking exclusively about climbing the ladder and think a little about the people you manage. Communicate. Look for solutions that help everyone, instead of just covering your ass.
I know, it's like that everywhere--but that doesn't mean we should stop expecting it.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Great company to work for but don't expect vertical advancement to come quickly.

    Account Manager (Current Employee)

    I have been working at Monsanto Company


    Pros: Benefits are great! After your second year of service, there are 4 weeks of vacation, one personal day, and the week off between Christmas… Cons: Few people leave the company so there is very little vertical movement within Monsanto.… Advice to Senior Management: Continue to improve company image.
