I worked at John Deere

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 ManagementAdvice

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

    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.

    No opinion of CEO

    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.
