    I worked at Monsanto Company full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    None provided by the company; good people work there and the business is interesting. Otherwise this company is terrible and upper management will lay people off every time they make bad decisions.

    Cons

    Company lacks integrity and constantly discriminates against certain types of people. When upper management makes bad decisions they aren't held accountable they just lay off honest workers.

    Advice to Management

    Hold management accountability and especially HR because they are worthless
