Benefits and Rewards

Monsanto provides employees with a complete package of total rewards. At Monsanto, total rewards go beyond pay to include support for employees’ health and financial security, opportunities to grow and recognition for employees’ contributions.

Monsanto offers highly competitive pay and benefits around the world, excellent development opportunities and a great working environment. Our compensation and benefits philosophy is to provide competitive rewards to attract and retain the best talent and foster a sense of ownership in the company. Monsanto's annual incentive program is tied to performance of the company, your team, and you.

Employee benefits are an important part of our culture. We provide a wide range of benefits aimed at meeting the diverse needs of our employees around the globe. Benefit packages vary from country to country. For benefits information in countries other than the U.S., please consult local Monsanto Human Resources.
