I have been working at John Deere

Pros

Good pay, flexible hours in some groups, great company name recognition

Cons

Very formal company, not forward-thinking. Very stuck in their ways sometimes and afraid of change. Need to do more unique things for their employees to make jobs more enjoyable and give incentive to stay. Compensation is great because they don't do a lot outside of pay.

    I worked at John Deere

    Pros

    Excellent benefit are offered. Salaries are okay according to the location. Co-workers are friendly and courteous. Training opportunities are good.

    Cons

    Middle management does not adhere to upper management's suggestions, but twists the interpretation to meet their goals. Challenges are admonished and punished harshly within the limits of the law and policies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want to retain the best talent, please try to improve the middle management (9s, 10s, 11s). The CEOs objectives for improving manager-employee relationship is not working well. You have correctly stated that people join companies, but leave a manager. Regretfully, I did the same.

    Pros

    Relaxed environment
    Job stability
    Everyone loves their job
    Promotion opportunities

    They also treat their employees like gold, and their intern program is great.

    Cons

    Locations aren't that great if you like the city. However, if you're from an Ag background or don't care for huge cities this company is perfect.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I truly have no complaints when it comes down to management. There are some politics, but nothing major that would/should alter your decision.
