Monsanto cultivates a mindful work environment, with a focus on the mission, attention to the person in addition to the work, and emphasis on safety first. Occasionally, the desire to give autonomy to individuals makes for an ambiguous work environment, but like with any large company, there are opportunities for all types of performers. Also, some areas of the company are highly matrixed, where other parts are not. I learned a lot about people management, goal-setting, and business-sense during my career there. Hardest part of the job: managing multiple, and sometimes contradictory expectations. Easiest and most enjoyable part of the job, availability of resources.
