    I worked at AGCO full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Positive overall work environment, stable industry, good overall company ethics. Co-workers are friendly and everyone gets along well in corporate office and internationally.

    Cons

    Business leadership is severely outdated and does not really understand how to run an international company. This results in huge under-investment in support functions and associated problems for company operations. There are few career opportunities in IT, they hire/fire IT staff regularly and expect positive changes. Unfortunately, the business thinks regularly firing IT leadership is the way to go when business projects fail. The real cause is an underpaid, understaffed, and underfunded IT department that will not improve until the company invest in it properly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring in some outside executive leadership from a more successful company. Act like a multinational and invest in company support infrastructure (HR, Legal, IT, etc.). Realize that IT is a business enabler, not a cost, and invest wisely and you will see profits increase through productivity and growth.

    I worked at AGCO full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Company values are strong. AGCO is progressing rather slowly but steadily in the right direction.
    Compensations are one of the best in agriculture industry..
    Terrific work culture, excellent work life balance, extremely multicultural.

    Cons

    People close to the CEO and senior management in corporate headquarters in Duluth predominantly play power games and at times harass the actually hardworking employees.

    Internal growth depends entirely on your rapport with powerful people, especially the Germans in the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too many directors and vice presidents in the company, and not all of them are effective in leadership positions...
    Excellent initiatives by Global Business Services and the company's future looks bright with the existing Senior Vice Presidents leading the way.

    I have been working at AGCO

    Pros

    Biweekly pay, on the job luncheons often, 10 paid holidays, 1 extra day at your disposal, 10 vacay days( you have to work here at least 5 years to get more), there is no policy for sick days so take off as much as you want.

    Cons

    Too many to name....
    Rude customers, incompetent staff, no organization, senior leaders are invisible, harassment lawsuits all the time

    Pros

    Strong will to gain market share in ag industry, decent pay, decent benefits, opportunities to move up in career, and constant facility upgrades

    Cons

    Rarely follow through on changes and fall back into old traps, crazy work hours with inconsistent times,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too many chiefs, not enough indians. It seemed like I was being told what to do from many different people, but had no to help to accomplish the task effectively. They were terrible at following through on new initiatives, meaning we were always starting some sort of quality or continuous improvement program, yet over time they would fall by the way side and we'd slip back into the old way of doing things with the same old problems.
