Pros

John Deere really values it's employees. A lot of companies pay lip service to the employees being their greatest asset, but Deere walks the walk. Employee retention is phenomenal; almost nobody leaves.

Advancement opportunities are almost endless. Many positions become available all of the time making it very easy to move around and advance within the company.

Tuition reimbursement program is fantastic. $15k/year for graduate school.

Cons

Schedules can get hectic. 45-50 hour work weeks are not uncommon.

People at Deere do not value work experience outside of Deere as highly as they do work experience at Deere.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep growing the company! You're doing a great job with the global movement, but I feel we're still behind the Caterpillar's of the world. We have a lot of ground to make up outside of North America.

    Pros

    A large variety of job types and skill sets. A good system for career development and resources to help you achieve your career goals. PDC is part of Deere and Company which offers a number of different opportunities worldwide.

    Cons

    We were very aggressive in making changes to the distribution system in order to improve customer service and as the result you were more than busy. If you're opposed to working almost 24/7 this may not be the place for everyone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take time to show appreciation for the hard work most of the employees are providing.
