Conservative Company with solid foundation

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Horicon, WI

ProsJohn Deere is a very stable company with ties in the agriculture market that is the money maker and backbone of the business. Have a strong upper management with a good vision that is goal driven to the future in order to be successful and stay competitive.

ConsConservative company (can be viewed as bad/good), new ideas and innovative ideas are sometimes difficult sell. Locations for work are not highly sought after places to live. Promotions can be limited and not all locations are aligned for employee and management structure with regards to pay and labor grades.

Advice to Senior ManagementNeed to focus on bringing in young leaders in the business and developing them into becoming future leaders. Hiring contract workers for important positions is short term thinking and need to bring in and offer full time employment to retain strong employees.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
