    I have been working at Monsanto Company full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Monsanto is a great place to feel like everyone’s ideas are important and to grow your career. Driven by innovation and candor, no one should ever feel like they don’t have a voice when they want to present new perspectives. The flexibility provided to employees is fantastic and ensures you don’t lose top talent.

    Cons

    The location of St. Louis can be a tough sell for people that aren’t familiar with the city.

    Advice to Management

    My hope would be that they don’t lose the culture when they become Bayer. Not only does it retain people, but it fosters the innovation throughout the company.

    Pros

    Great benefits. Work well compensated. A great place to work.

    Cons

    Quick turnover of Managers in my department. In my previous role, it was an average of 2 years. Specifically in this position, there was less likely opportunities to advance unless relocated to Global Headquarters. Support to advance career varied among Managers.

    Advice to Management

    Train people in Leadership positions to be true Leaders, not just Managers.
