A:Expert Answer

The government has occasionally hired people who formerly worked at Monsanto, just as they’ve hired people from many other companies in our industry.  The government also looks to NGOs (non-governmental organizations) to hire people for positions in public service.  Some critics say this shows a complicated conspiracy by former employers and the government. 

 

In my experience working for NGOs and corporate entities, I find these theories often disregard that these are experienced and highly skilled individuals, who have likely been well-matched for these positions.  People who choose to do these jobs – public servants who work hard to make things better for all – deserve better than skepticism of their motives.
