Good product line with 1970's management style - Somethings gotta give.

Pros

Product line is good, Jackson employees are motivated, benefits are excellent.

Cons

Most management positions are hired from the outside so there is little chance for advancement. I considered my immediate Georgia supervisor completely out of touch with what was happening at Jackson. His remarks to me demonstrated a total lack of understanding of his what his subordinates did and how the processes worked. Very litle communication, and when there was, it was superficial and incompetent. I'm pretty sure he spent most of his time trying to justify his career position, he certainly didn't do much meaningful management.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Since the product line is good, and middle management of the company is demonstratedly poor, there needs to be a re-evaluation of current management strategy and Atlanta needs to get in touch with the divisions. They are completely out of touch with reality. If AGCO management continues along this path, They will become a sweet target for aquisition and dismemberment by a company that knows how to efficiently manage.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat people like people - respect and decency.

    I have been working at AGCO

    Pros

    Work hard and you can advance. Some departments promote from within. Great benefits (health and dental) compared to similar companies.

    Cons

    Some employees do not view tasks with urgency. Mediocracy is accepted and is more of the norm. Nights and weekends can be the norm.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Huge strategy department but not much strategy. Would be nice to know which way he ship is going. Not good communication.
