    Pros

    Monsanto treats their employees very well! They have cultivated a work culture where high quality work and respect for colleagues is always the standard.

    Because of their focused scope of work, the number of Monsanto sites around the globe may be limiting to a potential employee.

    I worked at Monsanto Company full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The responsibilities vary from season to season but are often a nice change. It is a great place to meet and work with individuals from all around the world. I built many long-lasting friendships while I was there. The pay is in line with the market and the benefits are second to none.

    Cons

    Some of the management decisions were based on computer models and didn't align with what reality is out in the field. Management should rely more on their educated and experienced employees.

    Advice to Management

    Not everything should be based on computer models. Those people building those tools should spend some time with farmers.

    Pros

    Flexible Schedule, Meaningful Tasks, Organized and Friendly Team, Great Technical Exposure of Other Disciplines, Great Balance between Desk Work and Hands-On Lab Work

    Hard to find bad things to say. Occasional and brief periods between projects where tasks may be scarce. Can be unbalanced in work distribution (very busy one month, slow the next)

    Advice to Management

    Could use more positive and negative feedback. Feedback could be more timely and frequent.

    Sometimes personal marketing is worth a lot. Very few bad managers that profit from the teams effort.

    Recognize the "makers" of the team. Reward oustanding performances.
