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 Management

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.

    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 Management

    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.

    Pros

    Company offers flexibility with great work/life balance, generous bonuses when the company performs well, great benefits, and many opportunties to move around.

    Cons

    The pay raises are bad.

    Advice to Management

    For IT, make it more clear what the "career ladder" is that is in place. It seems that this is something that is not very obvious but would help to know what next role we may want to work toward.
