    I have been working at Monsanto Company full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Excellent career/growth opportunity.
    Great work-life balance.
    Excellent health and wellness center.
    Excellent personal development opportunities.
    Diverse culture and strong sense of belonging.
    Beautiful campus and great cafeteria.
    It is an Agricultural technology company focused on the sustainability of our food security.

    Cons

    The cons are few and far between, so I would have to say that the largest negative is that Monsanto and its technology is often misunderstood by the public which leads to some uncomfortable conversations outside of work.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.

    Pros

    A company of over 20,000 people where everyone has a voice and can understand how their job both helps farmers and improves agriculture in a cool way. GREAT coworkers, the opportunity to pursue career development, and very reasonable work/life balance.

    Cons

    History will prove-out the significance and importance of the science that has been and is being conducted here. Unfortunately the affluent minority tends to vilify the work. It can wear on you.

    Advice to Management

    Keep building the business from the bottom up. Keep rewarding those who do great work with both compensation and opportunity.
