Ethical company that is very loyal to employees

Marketing Manager (Current Employee)
San Marcos, CA

ProsJohn Deere actually lives it core values. The company is highly ethical at all levels. They treat employees very well and total compensation (including 401K match, Pension, benefits, and bonus) has been outstanding during the recent Ag boom.
There are multiple international opportunities for employees with interest in international assignments.
Work/life balance is very good. I typically work 40 hours a week. Very rarely work on weekends.

ConsJohn Deere is a 175 year old company and they act like it. It can be a very slow moving company that is ultra conservative. This can be very frustrating at times.
The majority of the locations in the US are in the Midwest.
As far as career development is concerned the culture is very much a "wait your turn" and "check the boxes" mentality.

Advice to Senior ManagementBe realistic about who you are and don't think you are a fast paced innovative company.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
