SENIOR RESEARCH ASSOCIATE (Current Employee) – Monsanto - St Louis – September 5, 2015
Too many layers of useless management. Ph.D. = manager even though most are introverts with zero people skills. Used to be a nice place to work, but I get the feeling now that top dogs are going to Enron the place as they switch to a 'Data Company'
Management Layers, IT side (TPS) is horrible, company lost focus on what made them the industry leader which was the science not the software.
IT Support Specialist (Former Employee) – Creve Coeur, MO – August 26, 2015
I believe this is a good company to work for in general. I unfortunately was not in a pleasant department. Management in TPS was horrible. No direction was given as I was a new employee. Manager was not capable if managing team. I was set up to fail and discriminated against. I had nightmares every night about this job.
Laboratory Assistant (Current Employee) – Illiopolis, IL – August 16, 2015
Challenging and interesting business to be involved with. I learned many new things at Monsanto, that I believe will be a benefit to any future employer. The people at you work with daily are down to earth, and have positive attitudes.
Drafter (Former Employee) – Creve Coeur, MO – July 28, 2015
At Monasnto Creve Coeur, I was harassed by one particular man. He would come to my desk and yell at me for things I didn't understand.When I went to the supervisor all I was told was this man was "old school" and I would have to deal with it. I was thrown into their way of working and programs without any instruction or training. I was only there for 5 months and the supervisor cut my contract short. Very few other drafters were willing to help me with questions that I had. It was pretty much every man for himself.
Pollinator (Current Employee) – Monmouth, IL – July 21, 2015
A typical day at work is putting shoot bags on the ear of corn, putting a brown paper bag on the tassel of the corn. I learned that it is important to use good communication skills while out in the field. I would say that the hardest part of the job is putting the brown paper bag on the tassel. I say it's the hardest part because it's the most time consuming part of the day. The most enjoyable part of the job is being around all the friendly people and taking down the bags from the tassel.
