Benefits and Rewards

Monsanto provides employees with a complete package of total rewards, which go beyond competitive pay to include: support for employees’ health and financial security, opportunities to grow, recognition for employees’ contributions, 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, so contact local Monsanto Human Resources for benefit information for countries other than U.S.
