Pros

John Deere has endless opportunities to grow as an individual. As an intern, I did actual work and had legitimate projects I was solely responsible for. Leadership and help is always there when you need it. The John Deere support system, from online classes to helpful coworkers across the country, is extremely beneficial and leads to a positive working environment. Benefits are extremely good, pay was much better than other internship offers. Overall, the greatest pro is that all employees (from wage to salary) are satisfied and willing to work cooperatively.

Cons

Employees spend money very freely, as in most large corporations. Communication between salary and wage workers could be better as there was often some confusion of large factory events and schedules.

Advice to Management

Increase communication among employees by holding more meetings between wage and salary employees to ensure all are on the same page.

    Pros

    John 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.

    Cons

    Conservative 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 Management

    Need 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.

    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.
