    I have been working at Monsanto Company

    Pros

    Monsanto is a great place to work. It is a casual environment. The employee benefits are wonderful. Vacation and paid-time off and company holidays are generous - Monsanto is closed between Christmas and New Year's Day. There is a cafeteria and fitness center at the St. Louis site. There is a great wellness incentive program in place...Turnover is low and most employees enjoy working here...It is a great time to work for Monsanto. The company is growing and there are lots of opportunities available...The company believes strongly in promoting from within so there are many opportunities to move around the company and grow your skills.

    Cons

    There are lots of meetings at Monsanto. Sometimes it's hard to complete your work because you could be in meetings all day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It is great to work for a company where Senior Managment listens to employees.

    I worked at Monsanto Company

    Pros

    The pay is good, the benefits are great. There are lots of really top notch scientists working for this company. I am not familiar with the business side of the company. Monsanto is a leader in its field.

    Cons

    Very stressful, demanding, large, feel like a cog in the large wheel. Feels somewhat like working in a technical assembly line. They want you to crank out the work but not involve you in the end results. They used to give out stock options to non management and then decided to change that policy. They talk the talk of work life balance but never quite seem to achieve it at least in the group(s) I was in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more people, let scientists be more involved in big picture, feel like technical assembly line
