I worked at John Deere as a contractor

Pros

Nice training program, great follow up to help achieve superior customer service.

Cons

Company thinks little of retaining loyal employees. Tends to lay off perm workers and temp staff frequently to rehire later at a lessor rate. Horrible insurance package for the amount of money the company brings in. Insurance benefits are set for young people who never have to go to doctor and too expensive for those who do.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Like many companies, corporate profit is more important than what original founder set company to be.

    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

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO
