SHAREPOINT/SQL ADMINISTRATOR (Current Employee) – Creve Coeur, MO – May 16, 2016
First Job out of College. Great place to learn a lot of technologies if you get the chance. Co-Workers are good people. Upper Management seems nice, middle management has some hit and miss people. there can be micromanaging.
Monsanto is a company facing serious challenges because they have allowed themselves to become dependent on a very narrow portfolio.
Senior Chemist (Former Employee) – St. Louis, MO – May 15, 2016
The Senior Chemist position at Monsanto consisted of primarily short term problems and mini-projects closely associated with various aspects of dicamba process development and some marketed product support for other products. Because of the short term nature of the assignments the opportunity for significant contributions, meaningful work experience, learning, and professional growth was quite limited. This may have more to do with the position being a temporary contract assignment than anything else, but even so for the type of work Monsanto wanted and the manner in which they managed it they would have done just as well to engage a junior chemist.
Lower level management was talented and easy to work with, but they lacked the necessary experience in chemical process development to make sound assessments and correctly management development and manufacturing risk. Higher level management had little or no commitment to chemistry and inadequate understanding of the company's risk exposure.
Although Monsanto's management and cultural shortcomings were a source of continuing frustration, the culture was very congenial and the work itself--laboratory chemical process development--was enjoyable.
pleasant culture, good colleagues, flexible work schedule and procedures
GLOBAL PLATFORM APPLICATION ANALYST (Current Employee) – St. Louis, MO – May 5, 2016
Monsanto is a vibrant facility with a knowledgeable core group of employees who work together to achieve overall satisfaction for the company and business end users. I enjoy the relaxed environment and learning different application functions that help customer's business thrive. The hardest parts of my day are the meetings, but knowing I have a core group I can depend on, I get through my days with a breeze.
Great company to work for in management or internship positions
Lab Tech Cordn Admin Assnt (Current Employee) – Windfall, IN – April 7, 2016
Not all Monsanto plants are the same or do the same work. However, the benefits package & insurance are a definite plus. It is better to work for them in a management or internship rather than basic blue collar. My experience with Monsanto for the first 16 plus years was pretty good. The changes in staff, management, & arrangements with the technology with & for security for the area I am specifically located has hindered more than helped.
benefits, ( 401k & pension for full time), insurance, above average starting wage for job type
high tech advancing systems for typical techs, high maintenance advancment programs.

Business Support Function (Current Employee) – St. Louis, MO – March 4, 2016
Monsanto offers solid work-life balance except at the upper-management level where expectations are as demanding as they are at any other publicly-traded company. There is a strong focus on employee development, however, because it is very methodical, it sometimes gives the impression that the path of career progression will be very slow even for top performers.
