It's a good company overall
Electrical and Instrumentation Engineer (Current Employee), Luling, LAOctober 14, 2013
It's an okay work life balance. The hardest thing I hated was being on call 24/7 and not having coverage for when I wanted to travel. Also, I got called out numerous times as an engineer for non engineering issues.

sun, date lines, employees, plants GMO
seed technician (Current Employee), juana diaz, PRSeptember 4, 2013
Pros: beneficts, work with nature gmo
Cons: health care- because of the sun and the products that we used there. there is not a clean lab, to work with.
I work with a lot of employees. I learn all the things for cotton, and soy crops. Is always away to do all the things, and that give direction to all the thing that we do. My co-workers are persons that have been studied; sometimes that is great, but sometimes that is difficult to work with. The hardest part of the job is making that the people do the – more... work in the correct way and into the date line. The sun all the day in your head is sometimes difficult. I love working with plants because I think that is food for my soul. Is not a common job. – less

Productive workplace.
Pollinating Assistant (Former Employee), Greenville, OHAugust 26, 2013
Pros: great work environment.
Cons: small rural town.
The managers are great and know exactly what needs to be done in a given day. The co-workers are all team focused to maximize productivity and results. The hardest part of the job was living in Greenville, Ohio which is not exactly the nicest town.

Good place to work, just not sure about the IP group
IP related (Current Employee), St. Louis, MOAugust 23, 2013
Pros: good benefits
Cons: laywers are not necessarily good managers
Overall a good company to work for, but not sure about the IP group. Rare chance to advance, and will work you to no end.

All waiting for DH to retire.

Slight confrontation will take you to the bottom of the boat.

Not sure if anyone do real prosecution work.

TPS R&D organization
Software Engineer (Current Employee), St. Louis, MOAugust 21, 2013
Pros: scrum/agile workshop, flexible in terms of hours and working from home
Cons: relatively low pay
The TPS organization at Monsanto is really fun to work for in terms of software engineering because the business is very interesting, especially compared to the other big businesses in St. Louis. It's really cool to see how leadership wants to be less like other big companies by embracing innovation and a startup-esque culture. Everyone seems to get – more... along and it feels rather laid back, though everyone works very hard to get things completed with high quality standards. If you work hard, your efforts certainly get noticed, and it's not too difficult to advance or move to a different team if you feel like you're getting bored. – less

Monsanto is a good, ethical, global corporation.
Work at Headquarters (Current Employee), St. Louis, MOAugust 13, 2013
Pros: excellent benefits and work environment.
Cons: hiring/advancement practices.
The work is rewarding and the benefits are good.
It has been difficult to advance within the company despite advanced knowledge and experience. Confusing why they would pay for training and schooling, only to deny advancement and hire externally.

Could be a great place
Senior Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), Creve Coeur, MOJune 27, 2013
Pros: great benefits; beautiful campus
Cons: "corporate values" are a farce
Highly political environment. Management cares more about "playing politics" than actual work performance.

The company purports to encourage values such as “integrity, respect, ethical behavior, perspective and honesty”. The general workforce seems to believe in those values but senior management follows a different code of conduct that makes a mockery – more... of those "values"

I love the concept of this company as a "Great place to work" but in my experience senior management places more value on politics than ethics, transparency or honesty. – less
