    Pros

    The people at AGCO feel like a team, are cooperative and open to supporting you instead of saying "it's not my job". The company is focused and creates great products in all its farming and grain storage lines. It is embracing technology in powerful ways for the farmers. The leadership does focus on the company's mission and there aren't a lot of ego's trying to make power plays.

    Cons

    The company is has a very conservative culture and they don't take easily to change. AGCO has been created from a lot of acquisitions and years after those acquisitions, there are segments of the company that still identify with the original company. Leadership roles are primarily held by white men. The IT department is understaffed and cannot meet the demands of the Business Units.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create Disaster Recovery Sites for all your regions. Create and support career advancement paths for your staff instead of leaving them in the same role for years. Continue to lead in the technological innovation for your products. Get rid of HP as your hosting support and build your own team to do it. You will be amazed how much more quickly work gets done.
