Pros

Monsanto is doing amazing work, at the cutting edge of science, with the potential to enhance the lives of millions of farmers across the world.

Cons

More than a global company, Monsanto is stll an American company with offices in many global locations.

Advice to Management

It would be good to work on becoming truly global as well as improving both gender and cultural diversity, especially at headquarters.

    Pros

    Some of the benefits, and vacation.

    Cons

    Pre-2007, there was very little noticeable politics. It got progressively worse to where there is politics everywhere from the foot soldiers to the generals. In general, there seems to be a lack of integrity and basic respectful communication among employees as of the last two years. The addition of younger brash kids to get extensive work done at poor quality and for a pittance hasn't helped foster a professional work environment either. In my opinion, these negative attitudes could be top-down, since the change has been gradual since 2007/08. In terms of your career growth, the most important thing to note is that hires and promotions are light years from being transparent. Hard skills and soft skills (communication initiative leadership tendencies etc) alone will NOT get you places.

    Advice to Management

    1) Take genuine interest in your employees. 2) Be fair to ALL employees.
