I have been working at John Deere

Pros

Good pay for most jobs, compared to industry average.

Cons

Unless politically tied in, hired through a preferred / sponsored program, willing to live out of a suitcase, or carried into management on the back of your spouse (who also happens to work for the company), do not come in and expect to get to management pay grade anytime soon. Even if the job is compatible with flexible work arrangements can still be strapped to your desk by a manager with an old school mindset. In general, management does not care about the employee voice are not held accountable on their poor employee survey results. They pass it off as "employee perception". Management getting taken care of financially during a recession and restructuring while worker bees pay stagnent. Typical corporate environment.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Wake up or retire. Old school mindset is a thing of the past. Stop the good old boy hiring and promotion practices. India is not the future of our company....looks good on the books, but will be company's downfall. You've been caring too little for too long.

    I have been working at John Deere

    Pros

    good salary, benefits, and bonuses
    friends and family will know the name (one of most recognized brands around)
    stable and ok

    Cons

    non-existent technical career ladder
    decision making by politics is typical
    slow slow slow
    almost impossible to get rid of low performers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    aligned high performance team work, a goal of the company has come to mean only aligned team work. being high performance is not valued, because that might mean someone isn't happy with the decisions.
