Not terrible for a temporary job
Seed Technician (Former Employee), Galena, MDJune 27, 2015
Seasonal work, good pay, and not a difficult job, but once they run out of work, they let you go with no warning. Basically you just sit and count seeds all day long.

Biologist I (Contract) (Current Employee), Saint Louis, MOJune 24, 2015
Pros: Team building, Management/worker relationships, on site amenities, summer hours, flexibility
Cons: Direct hire possibilities
Monsanto is a great company to work for. They encourage collaboration and teamwork and are on the cutting edge of agriculture trait creation. The management listens to their employees and works with you in order to help you succeed. Coworkers are friendly and they strive to create an atmosphere of acceptance and equality. The only downside is the ability to advance from a contract position to direct hire. Job openings for direct hire are few and far between. You have to be at the right place at the right time to get hired on directly. Everything else about the company is excellent.

Office and Agricultural Assistant (Former Employee), Payette, IDJune 6, 2015
Work out doors in summer with other crew members. Gather data, manage samples. Foremen are careful about providing breaks with adequate shade and water, and have an admirable focus on safety.

Management changes
Sr. Project Manager (Current Employee), STLJune 5, 2015
Management changes so often, it's difficult to get a feel for your role and or what is expected of you. This drives me and my team crazy.
I realize the public knocks Monsanto; inside the realm of working at Monsanto, you learn the reasoning behind GMOs, and how they truly benefit the planet.


Typical day at work...meetings after meetings, often i think people at Monsanto just want to meet for the sake of meeting, are they productive? (few and far between)...trying to resolve that!

Field Sales Intern (Former Employee), Canandaigua, NYJune 4, 2015
Pros: tons of company benefits (Truck, Gas Card), Independence, Travel
Cons: Long days
As a field sales intern for Channel seed, I was stationed in Canandaigua, NY with a district sales manager. Here I was tasked with making cold calls to farmers across upstate NY as well as sometimes delivering seed pallets. This experience helped sharpen my communication skills as well as computer-literacy.

Babysitting (Current Employee), Maxwell, IAMay 26, 2015
Every morning was very damp and progressed into very dry, hot, and dusty day. I learned how to cooperate with others. My co-workers were mostly very easy going and easy to get along with. The hardest part of the job was having to pull tassels from 6-7 ft tall corn stalks when I am only 5'4". The most enjoyable part of the job was being able to work with such a fantastic group of people.

Application Support Specialist (Former Employee), Creve Coeur, MOMay 9, 2015
Monsanto is a great company to work at. Every team I have worked on has been very receptive and open to new thoughts and ideas. Teams are committed to the business and to impacts surrounding the business. For contractors it is a great place to gain work experience but a difficult place to advance or gain full time permanent employment.
