Pros

Great benefits and pay. Most roles are empowered to work with little direction and thus you have some freedom to achieve success in your own way. Most in the company are passionate about the customer and innovating new products resulting in this company being a market leader.

Cons

Be aware of the manager you work for, thus looking for the bad apple in the basket. Most managers are awesome, but a hand full are only concerned about their own destiny and ensuring they can balance diversity objectives. Make sure you network well within to offset this issue.

Advice to Management

Leaders and HR should really strive to allow people managers the right % of time to manage people vs. loading them up on special projects or committees. A lot of good talent has left the company, as managers did not recognize their strenghts or made the political environment unnavigatable.

    Pros

    I had a great experience as a co-op at Monsanto. The co-op program itself took all the students to different field trips and info sessions where we learned about the company. The people I worked with were competent and agreeable. They were great at recognizing hard work, and encouraging work/life balance.

    Cons

    I never totally got on board with the general mission of Monsanto, with GMO's and big agriculture.
