I have been working at John Deere

Pros

Deere is consistently rated a great place to work. The opportunities for women and minorities are huge as Deere diversifies from historic male orientation in manufacturing and engineering. We are right on the Mississippi River for recreational fun. 2.5 hours from Chicago.

Cons

There is no public university in town, so cultural life is limited. Winter is a bit long. Employees are not rewarded for excellent customer service.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Reward employees for excellent customer service. While hiring is diversifying, promotions are not. Analyze the demographics on employee promotions to diversify management.

    I worked at John Deere

    Pros

    The benifits are great! I'd say the best their is. The pay is great also, and the bonuses.

    Cons

    Training is rushed. If John Deere invests alot of money in their equipment, an employee with little experience should have more time without being penalized.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I suggest a payed training class for 3 months, even with less pay to make sure employees are confortable with their job and are able to perform their duties as soon as they get in their work area.

    Some locations are terrible, career growth can be limited on your ability to be political, long hours.

    Invest in the smaller towns that factories are at to retain employees.
