Detasseler (Former Employee) – Sterling, IL – September 12, 2018
Detasseling made me an was an endurance focused work determined to get the job done well no matter the circumstances. Working conditions where very physically challenging, ranging from soaking wet and frigid mornings to sweltering humid heat in the afternoon. Observation of safety and hydration protocols was a must. Despite the environmental challenges and overall difficulty of the job I was able to keep productivity and morale high.
Little to no experience required. Willing to hire minors.
Forklif t Operator (Former Employee) – Kearney, NE – September 12, 2018
Management was questionable at times. Got 15 minute breaks twice a day. It usually was boring and overstaffed in the warehouses, but when the summer would come around it was better because not everyone was in the warehouse.
Researcher (Current Employee) – St. Louis, MO – September 10, 2018
Great place to work, however once in you can get "stuck". There is low turnover, don't expect in role promotions or quick advancement. Not uncommon to see people in the same role for 7-10 years.
The science is top notch, probably partially because of the long term retention.
Work life balance depends on management but is generally great. With the Bayer takeover this could all change though. Great 401k match, (at least 9%, more the older you are... again subject to change now that Bayer acquired).
Overall a great place to work, great compensation/benefits. I think their greatest challenge for employee retention is people feeling like there is no room for advancement/pay raises.

very competitive, high expectations with little direction, poor management, ineffective leadership communication through business transitions and corporate initiatives constantly changing and being roled out. creates stressful environment; always feel like nothing is good enough loved the role and the mission I was working for

The company encourages work/life balance and lives their core competencies. Management is sincere and genuine. Coworkers are friendly. I appreciate that I can be candid with my manager and coworkers and it is well received because there is a collaborative mindset.

Monsanto is a great place to work. They prepare the employees to be ready for next position in the same company. They improve and continuously innovate in order to use the best technology avaible in the market.
