Very challenging to get the job done due to low staff.
Field Conditioning Supervisor (Former Employee) – Juana Díaz, PR – April 20, 2018
Its a very good company with good benefits. Its even more aggressive that others company in decision making. Take for risky decisions to advance products to the market place before the competitors. It has the very solid traits in the market. Research and Developments strategies are very success . It contains the more demanded products by the farmers. One thing that may improved is the professional environment, especially people relations. But it has many other good thing such as much better pay rate in the industry, excellent health insurance and profit sharing, You have the opportunity to travel more frequently having more good experiences etc.
Crew Leader (Current Employee) – Humboldt, IA – January 14, 2018
I taught new people how to detassle, while detassling. Typically, in the field, around 7 am and done around 4 pm. Great contractor and workers. The hardest part of the job would be the heat and long walking, but I didn't mind either. I enjoyed everything about the job, I love manual labor.
Warehouse worker/Contract Coordinator (Former Employee) – Boone, IA – January 12, 2018
I worked at the production plant for a few months during a summer job and it was pretty slow going and relaxed but also boring at times. They are very into safety and many rules and regulations are in place.

You have the freedom to work and experiment. However, depending on the manager/department your work-life balance will be affected. Good colleagues. Lack of exposure to different departments across the company will stunt growth and expand your knowledge/skill/expertise.
Telecom Field Technician - contractor (Former Employee) – Crever coeur MO – January 11, 2018
I was a contractor. Monsanto treated both employees and contractors very well. Loved working there. The only downfall was that it was a contract position which eventually would eliminate my job. Also, it was a long commute for me.
Seed Techician (Former Employee) – Monmouth Il – January 10, 2018
You would be busy about every season expect some time in the winter would be slow. I learned a lot about working in the field and out of the field. Helped take notes of the fields that were being tested. Hardest part at times was working in the fields on a very hot and humid day.
Procurement (Current Employee) – St. Louis, MO – January 9, 2018
Working at Monsanto is great... if you are a full time employee. Monsanto employs a high percentage of contract workers. These still vital roles do not receive any benefits whatsoever. The perks of Monsanto - one large one, extra days off during the holidays - are especially painful for those not getting paid for them.
There is no valid/pertinent reasons given when asking about the transition to full time.
Sr. Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) – St. Louis, MO 63146 – January 8, 2018
Great workplace, great people to work with and know. Always stayed very busy and always asked others if there was anything they needed help with or if I could with anything. The only downside is that I was a contractor.
Safety Technician, MST Mid-States Technical (Former Employee) – Hazelwood, MO – January 1, 2018
A typical workday is filled with safety culture and yet, a fast-paced environment. They are many challenges for this being a new facility for Monsanto in bringing them aligned with the Saint Louis ESH sites. But, in the end, we accomplished our mission.
Chemist (Former Employee) – Creve Coeur, MO – December 26, 2017
This place was the worst group of managers that I have ever been associated with. When it comes to work assignment, they want you to find new ways to perform on a task, even though you have completed all your assignments. Not a good place to work!
