Pros

Flat organization and ability to voice concerns with management.
Diverse workforce and ability to learn from others.
Most employees are very loyal to the company.
Good team-based environment where networking is highly encouraged.

Cons

Mid-senior level leaders are constantly rotating and it's hard to keep up with.
Compensation practices are completely outdated and there's too much inequity.
Heavily matrixed and alot of time is wasted gathering unnecessary buy-in. This stalls important decisions and can block progress.

Advice to Management

Spend less time on the failing employees and more time promoting successful ones.
Straighten out matrix and streamline reporting relationships.
Give re-orgs more time to prove success/failure before moving on to the next thing so that mistakes aren't repeated and successes can be fully explored.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Good benifits
    Global networking
    Multi business divisions
    Vegetable Division is good to be in, if your in HR.
    Cross Training
    Good to get in if your a new college grad looking for a good CV builder.

    Cons

    Compensation is below industry standards.
    Lack of yearly salary increases, you get about 2% , if your lucky.
    Politics , too many slogans that management doesn't follow, just take down all the propaganda posters.
    Too many re-org's and not retaining the good hard workers.
    Most of the executives in my division are from other division of Monsanto and have a hard time understanding the business, since is is very complex and not Da Row crops.
    The DPR yearly review system is really about if your boss likes you or not!

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time knowing about the business before taking on more side projects and consuming the time of others focused on driving the business. Try and nail down the org structure for the Veg business and stop making changing every other week....its been 5 years and we still cant get it right!
