I worked at John Deere full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Fair pay and benefits. Lots of resources available. Good training opportunities.

Cons

Management at Ankeny was the worst I have encountered. Management by intimidation. Good old boy network was alive. Lean manufacturing was just for show, would do just enough to cover the audit. I would hope management has changed since I left. Ankany was always at the bottom of the internal employee satisfaction survey.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Let your employees think for themselves. Most of management would should retire

    I have been working at John Deere full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Definitely a stable company. No fear of being laid off or fired if you show up and even perform at a minimal level. Many people here surf the internet and are not even talked to about it as long as they get their work done. Great pay for the work and the bonus is very generous. Very open to work life balance. I have been told that I could work from home up to 3 days a week, no problem. I see virtual offices taking place someday

    Cons

    Very conservative and slow to implement technological change although that is changing as people retire. Doesn't have a gym at headquarters, which is strange because many other locations do. Also, free food would be great.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Build a gym at world headquarters and make it accessible to spouses as well. You would be doing many people a HUGE favor.
