Babysitting (Current Employee), Maxwell, IA – May 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.

Continuous Improvement Analyst (Former Employee), Oxnard, CA – July 10, 2014
Monsanto was and is a great place to work. Always a new challenge that can bring about and produce success stories or success failures. A typical day could involve communication with fellow employees on a global level about label specifications and regulatory recommendations. It can also include process improvement projects to ensure customers are satisfied with finished product.
Distribution CO-OP (Current Employee), Luling, LA – June 1, 2014
My typical day at work included coordinating the in-bound truck schedule, assisting with in-transit railcar orders, and working on various optimization projects. I learned the importance of safety culture within a manufacturing plant environment. My co-workers were great. They worked through each day with a positive attitude always handling issues that may arise with rapid response and candor. The hardest part of the job was use of SAP and use of SAP tables to edit data while dealing with discrepancies in inventory. The most enjoyable part of the job was interacting with the carriers. I enjoy managing people and providing a service to an organization.
Biologist (Former Employee), Chesterfield, MO – May 6, 2014
Running experiments, had a good amount of working by myself, after being trained. Co-workers were great, probably the best part of the job. Wanted there to be more opportunity to advance. Job could get repetitive and a bit monotonous.
Contractor, Data Operations Operator (Current Employee), Creve Coeur, MO – April 24, 2014
Monsanto is all about "teaming". I have enjoyed my time with Monsanto and I have learned a lot. The Data Operations team is managed very well by a super nice gentleman. And it shows when you work with the Leads. But unfortunately the business likes the idea of "Contracting" with very little opportunities for full time permanent positions.
Great place to work expecially if you are in it to for the long haul
Technician (Former Employee), Chesterfield, MO – April 2, 2014
The real issue with work at this company as some one with a biology background is it is very hard to get a job for Monsanto you start out doing temp work through contracting agencies(3 months at a time maybe more) until you get to know enough people that you are able to work year round on a more permanent contract(can take 2 or 3 years) then hopefully a job actually for Monsanto opens up (for a total of up to on avg 5 years)
