Former Employee - Mfg Engineer in Ankeny, IA

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 part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    wonderful people with good hearts, the company has a desire to retain employees and to provide the opportunity to grow (full tuition coverage for Grad School and grants for undergrad students)

    Cons

    Very difficult to move up or around - stuck, mentorship is lacking

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    schedule one on one's with employees that are truly one on one's (my mentor was allowed to always sit in which didn't allow me the opportunity to voice my opinion about what was truly going on with my mentor)
