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

Pros

Executive management is spot on, but new divisional management is a mess. People do not understand what Monsanto does or how they do it, but their intentions are good.

Cons

New management brought in from outside the company has no respect for the "legacy" employees or the Monsanto culture of forming relationships.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't bring in management from a company that was driven into bankruptcy and expect them to perform at any higher level of achievement or to higher ethical standards than what their history reflects.

    I worked at Monsanto Company full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    1. Conducive working environment
    2. Excellent HR
    3. Change is a constant (for some this is a negative but for me this is a positive)
    4. Respect for individuals is taken very seriously

    Cons

    1. Sometimes you face ethnocentric American employees but is generally at a minimum
    2. Execution pace can be painfully slow when politics come into play

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    By all means value your employees who can tell a good story... They are important to keep the buzz but do not neglect your silent but dedicated employees. What you know is sometimes not the world.

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

    Pros

    In the science divisions at Monsanto you will work with world class researchers on interesting projects for commercialization. You will also work with many different disciplines on project teams. Great opportunities for development.

    Cons

    Work does not shut off, e-mails will come all the time and all through the weekend. There is a very strong work ethic to get the job done there, but it makes it hard to take downtime and vacation time.
