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

    Pros

    Autonomy and work life balance are great. Pay and benefits are also really good. They have lots of employee-centered activities, team building and opportunities to share research.

    Cons

    At a satellite site there are not many opportunities to move up unless someone leaves. However, I am sure this is a common issue.

    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.
