Bayer successfully completed its acquisition of Monsanto on Thursday, June 7. This is an important milestone toward our shared vision of creating a leading agricultural company to support farmers in their efforts to be more productive, more profitable and more sustainable for the benefit of our planet and consumers. We are passionate in our work and look forward to continuing to move modern agriculture forward. As a condition of the U.S. Department of Justice approval of the transaction, Monsanto will operate independently from Bayer for an interim period post close while Bayer completes the BASF-related divestment actions. During this time, the companies will remain under the direction of our respective leadership.
For the eighth time, Corporate Responsibility Magazine (CR Magazine) named Monsanto Company a “100 Best Corporate Citizen” for 2018. Monsanto's commitment to be a sustainable and transparent company moved us up to #25.

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.

Advice to Management
Keep up the great work! I find it extremely motivating when I feel so valued and appreciated
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.
