Monsanto really cares about its employees.

Legal (Current Employee)
Saint Louis, MO

I have been working at Monsanto Company full-time for more than 10 years

ProsThe benefits are wonderful! Monsanto really cares about the safety and well-being of its employees by offering courses and resources for employees to access. Monsanto is also very active in the community and world-wide offering assistance to various charity organizations.

ConsThere are not many downsides of working at Monsanto. The only thing I can think of is that there are too many meetings and not enough time to get the work finished.

Advice to Senior ManagementAlthough I really admire and respect Upper Management, I think they are too removed from the day-to-day activities to really see the whole picture.
