Monsanto is proud of our Winning Culture. It is based on several important norms:
Did you know that between now and 2020, approximately 58,000 agriculture jobs are likely to open annually? These jobs aren’t necessarily for farmers or people with agriculture backgrounds either. Many of the job openings are related to STEM: geospatial big data engineers, information security intelligence analysts, software developers, data scientists and architects to name a few.
Agriculture is undergoing rapid change. The digital revolution has vastly changed how farmers work these days. There are currently 40 decision-making apps and algorithms that allow farmers to choose the best products for their specific farming needs. There is a tremendous amount of data that goes into farming, and the industry needs people who can take the economic, weather, planting and geographic information and turn it into solutions that will help farmers sustainably feed 9 billion people by 2050. The earth’s resources are finite, and the best way to feed a growing population is to use those resources better and more precisely. And that will take a lot of computing power.
I have been working at Monsanto Company full-time (More than 8 years)
Wonderful benefits, amazing vision to feed the world, cutting edge technology and innovation, dedication to conservation and donating to charitable causes, career learning experiences, great people, travel, development opportunities, work/life balance (unless you're under-resourced), on-site daycare in St. Louis, diverse teams (unless you work in US Row Crops)
IT systems, political environment, matrixed hierarchy, workload fatigue, lack of communication between functions/teams/organizations, process improvement needed everywhere, only a select few are "the chosen ones" and it's usually because they're good at spending money with agencies/delegating/sucking up, hard/difficult work can be recognized more often
Advice to Management
Fix IT. Resource teams appropriately. Recognize over-achievers.
I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Monsanto Company (Saint Louis, MO) in October 2016.
I interviewed directly with the hiring manager. He mentioned that there were three other candidates being considered for the position. He spent the first 30 minutes telling me about the company and about the internship role. The interview was quite easy and pretty straightforward. In all honesty, I ended up asking more questions than the interviewer.
