    I worked at Monsanto Company (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Excellent remuneration; great development opportunities; inter-department mobility; good atmosphere among staff.

    Cons

    biggest worry is how short term interests override long term goals; slow decisions; very much internal focused, not as much customer-oriented as it likes to promote itself.
    I found Monsanto's highly complex matrix org very inefficient, as everyone spends huge amount of time in meetings updating others or getting updated.
