    I have been working at Monsanto Company as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    I feel I am pushed very hard to where my skills are developed under pressure. In the end after the day is over I have the work accomplished and have gained new skills. Leadership is great at encouraging innovation.

    Cons

    Working overtime feels necessary just to get everything done with an understaffed group

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to encourage innovation for different ways of doing things. Do not get stuck in a rut doing something 1 way because that's just how it's always been done.
