Steeped in Politics and Old Management Styles

Infrastructure Analyst (Former Employee)
Moline, IL

I worked at John Deere

ProsGood reputation in community, decent benefits, stable company, good bonuses in good years, senior management reliable, retirement benefits still available in reduced form

ConsLipservice to employees, no development tracks, political nightmare especially in corporate environment, poor middle management...too much concern for own preservation and advancement, not open to new ideas, micro-management, no real rewards for a job well done

Advice to Senior ManagementPut employees back on the priority list with the shareholders, quit moving inadequate middle managers around, reward good talent and good work ethic, listen to your employees

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
