I have been working at Monsanto Company

Pros

Its a job . If you like making deals with the devil, join the Monsanto team.

Cons

Management is of the poorest quality. Atleast in Centralia, IL. If you could imagine if your employer ran your company in the same manner that high school hierachy and cliches are, then please apply at this place. There is SO much corrupt and morally wrong things going on here and that is why I was compelled to write this. My hope is that maybe people will think twice before joining this soul - erasing company. Seeing the previous posts , I can only assume that most are just bogus to make company look good, or they have a completely different atmosphere than the one here at Centralia,IL. I also have the feeling that this will be used against me at a later date.

    I have been working at Monsanto Company

    Pros

    Working on problems that benefit society and improving quality of life
    Opportunity to work on extremely challenging problems
    Very ethical environment - genuine concern for doing the right things in the right way
    Very supportive of work-life balance

    Cons

    Plagued by arrogance, certainly within management but also how the company represents itself
    Hard to introduce change - too much tolerance for empire building which works against the interest of the company
    Business units are very territorial and internal transparency is poor
    Management is too impressed with itself to be introspective - will be caught offguard by a competitor
    Senior and upper management is generally good about setting direction and vision but poor at driving execution and instilling clarity

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to act with more clarity and urgency and not discount competitors. Don't let business units work in silos and be less tolerant of people clinging to old notions and derailing execution on decide matters
