Pros

Monsanto is a good place to work. They invest in their employees, provide opportunity to advance and grow into new areas, and respects work/life balance

Cons

roles across the company change continuously. While this gives a lot of opportunity to try new things, it also creates an environment of often shifting strategies and varying degrees of competence.

Advice to Management

The senior management should strive to develop greater stability in mid and upper managerial roles and strategy, particularly within the technology side of the company.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Pay and bonuses are good
    Company does well as an investment and with Wall Street
    Committed to technology
    Benefits are similar to other companies

    Cons

    It's all about who you know and the relationships that you manage
    A ton of politics
    Lack of accountability, leadership and direction
    Borders of unethical

    Advice to Management

    Review how money/funding is spent. I've worked at several other large companies and there is so much waste here, it's embarrassing.
    Ensure accountability through less reorganization and movement. Everyone is a generalist now, no one really knows the details of any part of the business.
    Focus on getting new computer and IT systems. I don't work in this area, but the support, the systems and the data capture is all very dated.

    Pros

    - Highly talented and self-motivated group of people i have ever worked with (employees and contractors)
    - Good benefits
    - love to come to work every day!

    Cons

    - work life balance will take a hit if you are not keeping it in check
    - slackers are given multiple oppurtunities to prove they are worth hanging on to and this does not help the morale of the other high performers
    - promotions - don't expect it untill you have put in atleast 4-5 years and have a really good direct lead and a good relationship with his lead as well. (hate these Politics)
    - salary raises , too few and too little

    Advice to Management

    stop the continous re-org already!
    when you ask for feedback especialyl for performance reviews- consider peer feedback instead of only the leads feedback
