Good to work for if you don't get laid off

Good benefits and experience. Seems to have taken a recent down turn. Company is managed by Dilbert like people and can be hard to get anything done.
Pros

A place where you're given a lot of opportunity and trusted to work alone
Field Inspector (Former Employee) –  Rock Falls, ILSeptember 1, 2016
A typical day at work would consist of driving from field to field, usually about 7 each day. You would get to the field, and then check on the pollination, the detasselers performance, and overall rating of the field. The management was great, they trusted what you had to say about the field and if you had any questions or concerns they would come and check out what you were talking about. The co-workers were very helpful, always willing to help you understand as to what this issue you encountered in the field may be. The hardest part of the job was distinguishing if the field was ready to be closed and not worked on again until harvest. The most enjoyable part of the job was being able to work at my own pace and make my own schedule.
Pros
free lunches twice a summer
Cons
working in the rain

good ideas poor execution
Field Automation Support Team member (Current Employee) –  St. Louis, MOAugust 25, 2016
my personal opinion was that the majority of my time was spent "hurrying up to wait" for a project or training just to have it fall through due to lack of management abilities while there are a few good managers in the company the majority are in the position they are due to time with the company rather than performance
Pros
travel
Cons
politics

Fast-paced, and high pressure, but big rewards
Product Manager (Former Employee) –  St. Louis, MOAugust 24, 2016
Working in the Ag industry can be fulfilling-you feel as if you are helping the world. However, Monsanto is a high pressure place to work, and it is not for everyone. While there is an emphasis on work-life balance, it is sometimes hard to reconcile with the focus on driving results and meeting stretch goals.

Administrative Assistants (Former Employee) –  Dumas, TX 79029August 16, 2016
I learned a lot working with Monsanto the last past three years. I got along with all co-workers. The management was very profecinol at all times. The hardest times of my job was during rouging season. I learned how to do account payables, payroll for the rouges, scales for harvest season.
Pros
free $50.00 gift card for safety

Monsanto is a great place to work and the overall satisfaction of the job is very good. It's hard to get a job there, but once you have the job, do your job 100% and you are set.

no longer a great place to work
Former employee (Former Employee) –  St. Louis, MOJuly 21, 2016
lots of reorganization and downsizing in progress, lack of consistency between team leads, mgmt has no idea of the reality going on down in the trenches, a lot of good people have left - own their own or with all the layoffs.
Pros
good benefits, decent severance package for me at this time
Cons
too political - particularly if you are not in the "in-crowd", work-life balance is difficult, IT is being slashed/outsourced

ENGAGEMENT MANAGER, MANAGED SERVICES (Current Employee) –  St. Louis, MOJuly 17, 2016
Conversion of contractors to employees is below par.
Monsanto is great if you want a job, not career for contractors.
Atmosphere is relaxed. IT is very reactive

Great place to work! Several projects are available so you get to work on different technologies. Most managers are very flexible with work form home options and great place to grow and learn from each other.
