Vast majority of employees are great people
Great benefits and opportunity to help the community outside of your normal job responsibilities.
Keep in mind there are a lot of great managers and the cons only apply to some people.
Sometimes run into people who have been at Deere for years and get put into positions of authority where they don't belong. Worse yet, they have been promoted despite incompetence just to push the problem somewhere else (possibly to "give them enough rope to hang themselves"). These people get in the way of innovation and cause dissention.
Conservative practices also seem to get in the way of innovation especially if you run into bad managers who just maintain the status quo.
Advice to Management
Try to do a better job of rooting out the bad seeds and promote those who deserve it. I didn't have promotion problems but saw others who were passed up for generals who don't have good management sense nor updated knowledge of their area.

I applied online and was contacted for an interview about a month later. I was interviewed by two managers for one hour. It went straight into behavioral questions (about 6). Some of the questions sounded the same but they wanted different scenarios. They were based on teamwork and communication.
