Pros

John Deere probably isn't going to go under anytime soon.
The brand is easily recognized.

Cons

The pay and bonus structure is an absolute joke.
Ability to make decisions on own.
Wholesale businesses should not be open on Saturdays.

    Pros

    You are provided with freedom to make own choices. There is a great brand behind the company.

    Cons

    As with a lot of companies communication from top down is an issue. Here the company is very fragmented as there is no consistent identity. Regional teams hold full control, so success cannot be duplicated. Good managers succeed based upon hard work only, no additional marketing or support from other areas is available. Training is non existent. Unfortunately you also get hired, and promoted based upon the good ole boy network. With no structure or decisive leadership it will always just be an average company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop a consistent store strategy. Regional marketing (and probably national) brand awareness is a joke considering the great brand name that is behind it.
