    I have been working at Monsanto Company

    Pros

    Lots of holidays; great insurance and 401k matching

    Cons

    Bureaucracy can sometimes be very value. How promotions are done is not very clear

    Develop fair salary policies; lots of employees seem to have opinion that salary differentials are very difficult to explain.

    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

    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 Management

    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.
