    Pros

    Great company with competent leadership team. The LT is as up front concerning the state of the business as possible. Monsanto supports the Greater St. Louis area in many, many ways both financially & many volunteer hours. The company was just named #8 as one of the Best Multinational Workplaces. The total compensation package out shines other local employers.

    Cons

    Like with any company there are issues...none I to point out here.

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

    Pros

    During my working career I’ve had the opportunity to work for 2 of the best employers in the St. Louis area. What sets Monsanto apart from the other company is how much they value my work and more importantly how much they value me as a person.

    The flexible work arrangements allow me to spend more time with my family and participate in my child’s school events. I’m very thankful for this benefit because my child will only be young once and I don’t want to miss a moment of something important.

    The talent at Monsanto is top notch; my working environment is filled with innovative thinkers, strategic planners and leaders with a global vision.

    Cons

    Do I work hard 40 hours a week? Yes…but hard work at Monsanto also comes with praise and rewards. When I joined Monsanto I was pleasantly surprised by the culture. For the first time in my corporate career, I was receiving praise from my lead. Tasks that were “expected” of me by my old employer became a value added skill at Monsanto. The encouragement and enthusiasm extended to me by my lead inspired me to complete great work and speak up with improvement ideas.

    When I joined Monsanto, I was only thinking of a career…the confidence I have gained in addition to the time they have invested improved not just “me” as a worker, but also as a person.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The work-life balance sets Monsanto apart from other companies. The open door policy keeps communication transparent. Keep the encouraging words flowing and continue to challenge me with new assignments.

    Monsanto is a very inclusive and diverse environment. Employees are encouraged to actively participate in their own development. The matrix organization helps to keep everyone interested and engaged. Work Life balance is modeled and encouraged.

    Monsanto and what the company is trying to do is not well understood by consumers. Sometimes this makes for difficult conversations when socializing with family and friends.

    Pros

    Fast moving, agile company. You are able to really direct what you are interested in working on. Great pay and time off benefits.

    Cons

    Not a lot of extra time to work on additional projects. Must be able to juggle a lot of responsibility. Job changes frequently, even without promotions or compensation increases.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop expanding roles and responsibilities without pay increases. Jobs grow larger several times in a year, with no additional compensation or promotion.

    Pros

    Good Leadership, Opportunities for growth, Great benefits, Overall compensation is competitive and good. Offered care and concern for my family during a personal health emergency. Access to Sr. Leadership in my organization. Summer hours (1/2 day every Friday from Memorial Day to Labor Day)

    Cons

    You have to work very hard...all the time. Once you perform at a Superior level, you are expected to always perform at that level. For some, it can be hard to navigate the matrix

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More work/life balance, continue to reward people for hard work (even in tough years because the work doesn't stop),
