    Pros

    Great learning opportunities in any department.

    Cons

    The med insurance is to high.

    Advice to Management

    Yearly compensation could be much better. They low ball you. You would be better off looking elsewhere and get ~50% better pay.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at John Deere Landscapes (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The only thing it was a job, not a great one but a job nonetheless: Didn't have to work weekends: No night work:

    Cons

    Poor management, no room for advancement: Area managers play favorites with the branches.

    Advice to Management

    eliminate area managers, not needed: They don't help in sales, more of hindrance to the workers:
