Pros

Talented people, very friendly offering you help when needed. Flex hours. middle management tries to address your issues.

Cons

After a change in management, new managment (this happened back in 2010) tried to prove itself by dictating some unrealistic deadlines. Adopted Agile methodologies. At that time, there were a lot of changes going on. More than one would expect.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Trust your engineers and get their buying before you make your decisions behind closed doors.

    I worked at John Deere

    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.

    Pros

    This employer has great benefits and many options for how to save for retirement. The salary is great and there is focus on valuing the employee.

    Cons

    There seems to be a lack of communication between departments. There is a great difference between the treatment of salary workers and wage workers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure to always praise a great job and take an active interest in the employee's wants and needs. Also work to make sure there is a difference between work and personal life.
