    Fantastic benefits from an employer who truly seems to care about their employees. They offer a lot of exciting and challenging opportunities for development

    Pros

    The benefits are wonderful! Monsanto really cares about the safety and well-being of its employees by offering courses and resources for employees to access. Monsanto is also very active in the community and world-wide offering assistance to various charity organizations.

    Cons

    There are not many downsides of working at Monsanto. The only thing I can think of is that there are too many meetings and not enough time to get the work finished.

    Advice to Management

    Although I really admire and respect Upper Management, I think they are too removed from the day-to-day activities to really see the whole picture.
