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

    Pros

    Good work/life balance and flexibility where needed. Decent pay with excellent benefits. I believe Monsanto's intention is to treat their employees overall in a positive manner. Safety is paramount, which is a good thing.

    Cons

    If you get passed over on promotions or other jobs, I discovered that HR downright lied to me and others and strings you along. It appears if you didn't pass the politically correct or minority flavor of the month club, litmus test, you got passed over again. Sacrifices and hard work I gave for the betterment of the company, to include extending global trips, middle of the night phone calls for international calls, saving millions for projects was not noticed or appreciated.

    Advice to Management

    If you do not appreciate the hard work and sacrifices made by your employees and opt not to promote an employee, do not add insult to injury with deceptive reasoning.
