    I worked at Monsanto Company full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, opportunity to expand into other areas and regions

    Cons

    Corporate driven mentality of having to meet projected stock expectations at all costs

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make budgets based on demand forecasting not what increase in sales needs to be made to make a stock promise to the public

    I worked at Monsanto Company

    Pros

    High pay
    Great benefits
    Interesting work for Engineers
    Good safety record, Pervasive safety culture
    Some really nice people

    Cons

    Promoted because of who you know, as opposed to what you know.
    Weak management- doesn't want to rock the boat.
    Contractors can be treated like orphans (see weak management comment)low pay, no benefits.
    Backstabbing is prevalent. Beware;some of the employees only want their own kind to work as their colleagues(see weak management comment, see promoted because of who you know, and H.R. Bobbleheads).
    If the person who trains you is remarkably different from the person who interviewed you, RUN! The trainer will jealously guard their clique and stab you in the back (see weak management comment).

    I have been working at Monsanto Company full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I have enjoyed some of the projects I've been given, have a nice boss and appreciate the good company benefits offered.

    Cons

    If you are looking to be upwardly mobile, this may not be the place. "Networking", or playing the political game, are essential for moving up the ladder. Many stalled careers of good people as a result. Cost of living raises are about the most that many employees can expect.

    I have been working at Monsanto Company part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Opportunity for overtime. Paid holidays. Clean workplace.

    Cons

    Low hourly pay rate. Pressure to perform from management is sometimes overwhelming. Understaffed in general. Retention of quality employees is poor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The disconnect between how the work gets done and how the managers thing it gets done, is sad. Every manager should have to spend a whole day (once per year) working in the different areas of the plant.
