    I worked at Monsanto Company full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great flexibility with working hours, tremendous career development scheme, and lots of opportunities to advance your career in any direction. The office culture is the most notable feature; there are no office politics, everyone works hard but effectively and efficiently.

    Cons

    Very few. Due to the nature of the intercontinental ‘hubs’ conference calls are frequent and often involve dealing with difficult time zones, but otherwise are not difficult and IT infrastructure is set up to deal with this.

    Advice to Management

    HR continue to recruit personnel based on good fit with the team and company morale.

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

    Pros

    The company had a very structured process for many of its key business processes. This unlocks a lot of creative freedom...more than it suppresses. I really believe in what the company is doing for farmers across the world and that comes through in its pledge and internal communications.

    Cons

    The company is always growing and changing. No one retires from Monsanto. Expect that your job is always going to be at risk of restructuring.

    Everything is perfect! Very happy to work here

    Cons

    Nothing. The company is very nice!

    Advice to Management

    More focus on current people instead of bring of the market.
