    Pros

    Deere is a visionary, high-tech company with lots of collaboration between different locations worldwide. There are opportunities to travel abroad for employees interested in that. The work is challenging and engaging, and most managers value the work/life balance of themselves and their teams.

    Cons

    The size can make it slow to integrate new technology, instead opting for proven and reliable technology that support its tradition of quality.

    Advice to Management

    Continue looking for ways to allow employees to innovate. While we get to work on fairly new technologies, some of our people have great ideas that they don't know how to move forward with.

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at John Deere (Moline, IL) in March 2015.

    Interview

    First interview was over the phone. They asked detailed behavioral questions. The second interview was over a month later at headquarters. We had two interviews in the morning one on one and in the afternoon we had a tour of the headquarters. Big on diversity so incorporate that into answer.
