Mechanical Engineer (Current Employee) – Luling, LA – May 16, 2018
Overall a decent place to work. Pay is decent, but it is a political game in order to get promoted. Bonuses are a joke. No performance based raises. Everybody gets the same thing. And it isn't much. Good Vacation, benefits, 14 paid holidays, usually no questions asked if you need to leave early for family, appointments, etc.
Labor Worker (Former Employee) – Williamsburg, IA – May 15, 2018
A typical day at work would involve creating shipments, look for seed that is required, and place information into computers. I learned how to manage time and items, create shipments, and use excel. It was a diverse workplace and were able to meet people from all over the world. The hardest part of the job as being rushed on a shipment. Although, the most enjoyable part of the job as learning new things and meeting new people.
Lab Technician (Former Employee) – Creve Coeur, MO – May 9, 2018
Monsanto was great to work at if you are looking for something temporary. Just don't get your hopes up about getting hired as a regular employee. They only hire contract workers to do everything unless you have a PhD with 7+ years experience. I was in the same position for 4 years with no raise and absolutely no prospect of being hired on as a regular employee. Even though they let me interview for a position and told me every year there was a "chance" I could get a raise. Once the company was talking merger, they dropped their higher paid contractors and "let go" a lot more regular employees so they could afford to buy out another company. They didn't even bat an eye.
Relaxed atmosphere, great hours, only wish it was permanent/full time

Productive, fun place to work. Was only a temporary job through Manpower. I would have loved to been hired on full time! I loved what I did; Certified Lab Tech, I learned a lot! I love outside plant work, I and learned so much about soybeans. I found it very interesting.
