    Get rid of most of management in Westfield. There is no backbone or integrity. Truly listen to what employees are saying. Value your human capital.

    "Generally Positive, be careful of egos in their transition."

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

    I worked at AgReliant Genetics

    Pros

    The health insurance is second to none. The work is easy.

    Cons

    Middle leadership is inexperienced in dealing with strong personalities and with team dynamics. Reprisal at this level is real.

    Advice to Management

    There is an immediate need for training your middle management in soft people skills and team dynamics. Field staff are afraid to tell the truth about their supervisors due to intimidation and bullying tactics.

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at AgReliant Genetics full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    It is a small company that is not publicly traded. Small family atmosphere that is being dismissed by new leadership.

    Cons

    New management in research brought his Monsanto mentality. He does not give a damn about people's life. He let go a lot of people because in his mentality, he does not lead people, but things that just used for the purpose of making money. In addition, Europeans managers do not agree upon the best strategy. The company portfolio in research is a joke. They mainly sell corn state genetics.

    Advice to Management

    Create your own identity. We cannot be Monsanto with the amount of resources that are given for research.

    Pros

    Great products and the people apart of the company really are some of the best in the field. The benefits are some of the best in the industry.

    Cons

    Some management decisions come with some questioning, but I believe this company is really progressive and will become a bigger player in the near future.

    Advice to Management

    Management does a really good job seeing where the market is heading. Just want them to relay their decisions to their employees a little sooner and more clearly.

    I worked at AgReliant Genetics

    Pros

    The newly renovated office space is very nice. Employee functions such as cook outs and picnics help the low morale.

    Cons

    Understaffed accounting department reminiscent of a sweat shop. Unprofessional HR staff that shared info discussed in private. No advancement opportunity. Not all employees treated equally. Favoritism shown is unprofessional.

    Advice to Management

    Provide managers with proper management training.
