    I worked at Monsanto Company full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I hardly can tell any pros for this job. At least they provided job openings for corn seeds season. It was a mess and rude peoples.

    Cons

    Lack of professional attitude. They do not care contractors respectfully. The job was entirely stressful mainly due to people leaders skip the study of the people management at college. I never see such unprofessional work attitude.

    Advice to Management

    Replace the Customer Operations management immediately

    I have been working at Monsanto Company full-time

    Pros

    Working with the research scientists and project leads is the best part - lots of brains would come together and iron out issues. There's a lot of knowledge transfer so be prepared to learn fast and absorb a lot. I haven't run out of challenges yet.

    Cons

    Some teams are less collaborative and harder to work with. You just to find your connections.

    Need to find a way to keep the employees engaged and motivated during the next 12 months.
