    I have been working at Monsanto Company full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    A company of over 20,000 people where everyone has a voice and can understand how their job both helps farmers and improves agriculture in a cool way. GREAT coworkers, the opportunity to pursue career development, and very reasonable work/life balance.

    Cons

    History will prove-out the significance and importance of the science that has been and is being conducted here. Unfortunately the affluent minority tends to vilify the work. It can wear on you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep building the business from the bottom up. Keep rewarding those who do great work with both compensation and opportunity.
