Monsanto honored as one of best places to work in 2015
Monsanto has been honored with a Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Award, recognizing the 50 Best Places to Work in 2015. The Employees’ Choice Awards program, now in its seventh year, relies solely on the input of employees, who elect to provide feedback on their jobs, work environments and companies via Glassdoor’s anonymous online company reviews survey. Monsanto ranked 39 on the list and it is the only company focused on agriculture to be included.
The Glassdoor company review survey includes both quantitative and qualitative questions on key workplace factors including career opportunities, compensation, benefits, work/life balance, senior management, and culture and values.
“Millions of employees around the world are turning to Glassdoor each month to share their work experiences,” said Glassdoor co-founder and CEO Robert Hohman. “It is this type of authentic feedback that helps others find jobs and companies they love, and allows us to honor employers who stand out for their efforts in providing an enjoyable work environment and culture.”
The Best Places to Work are determined using company reviews shared by U.S. based employees who elected to participate in the survey between November 13, 2013 and November 2, 2014.
