    Pros

    Work Life Balance and the diversity of Monsanto is what makes it a great place to work. Also they promote innovation from all levels and recognize talent regardless of what position or level you hold

    Cons

    Sometimes the amount of work is a bit much for the resources we have. We operate extremely lean teams that have less than half of the staffing level that other comparable enterprise level companies have.

    Advice to Management

    My one piece of advice to management would be to understand better the current market rates for certain roles and ensure than compensation is adequate for retention of your highest contributors.

    I have been working at Monsanto Company full-time

    Pros

    Interesting work, great career/development opportunities, strong team culture, ability to work from home during busy season, excellent benefits.

    Cons

    Workload can be very heavy at times, uncertainty about future post-merger.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus on development plans to keep key employees engaged and help them reach their career potential. This is something Monsanto's Tax Department does really well and I hope continues post-merger.
