    I worked at John Deere


    Stable company, opportunity for movement/advancement within the company, good pay, great benefits, good people working there, good employee discounts, good working conditions, effective use of technology


    Management doesn't like to accept change, geographic locations less than ideal, very divided workforce (union, older engineers, etc.), lack of good knowledge transfer, conservative

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the younger engineers and employees, they will soon be higher up in the company and calling the shots, best avoid a harsh transition
