    Pros

    A general feeling of conducting head of the industry research, large budgets that allow the purchase of necessary equipment, incredible IT development and software, encouragement to develop.

    Cons

    Wide changes in workload, unfulfilled promises of backfilling staff, a general feeling of employee expendability from senior management, and consistent misleading of an improved work life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Senior management needs to understand that the needs of all research locations, are not the same as those of St. Louis headquarters.

    Pros

    Benefits, Vacation time, Smart People, Growing Company, Profitable Company

    Cons

    Senior Management has a tendency to play favorites to long term employees because of tenure, Bonus payout sometimes does not appear to be fair based on contribution

    Advice to Management

    Embrace the diversity you talk about - this is a major issue here for folks that are new to the Monsanto culture or don't fit the relatively homogenous population at this company
