    I worked at John Deere

    Pros

    Some of the nicest, most intelligent, hardest working people I've ever met work here. Customers and dealers are enjoyable to meet and interact with.

    Cons

    The problem is most of them are within 5 years of retirement. The younger generation of management has a totally different attitude and lack of knowledge. Not many have worked their way up through the ranks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to prioritize. Many processes and procedures are effective. Ineffective processes and procedures are never abandoned or reviewed. There is so much focus on following the process that it doesn't matter whether the desired outcomes are achieved.

    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.
