    Pros

    This company treats you like family. There is a very strong commitment to delivering quality and improving the process.

    Cons

    One of the biggest challenges is finding a good location to work. If you are not from that location some times it is very hard to adapt to the new location.

    Pros

    Good pay and overall compensation. They constantly work on improving employee engagement. High performers generally get promoted. The culture is also very good

    Cons

    They could do a better job at getting rid of the bottom 10% of performers.

    Pros

    Great working conditions, great benefits, everyone is very welcoming when you first start working here and everyone is willing to show you what needs to be done in order to be successful

    Cons

    I would have to say the only con was that I wasn't more involved in team-oriented projects, but it wasn't because of management, it was because of the projects I was working on.

    Advice to Management

    I worked at John Deere

    Pros

    The people were great to work with. The environment was very friendly and the quality of work completed was great!

    Cons

    In order to move up far in the company, you have to move to the Midwest. Which is fine if you like the Midwest.

    Advice to Management

    Continue encouraging your employees to improve themselves and give them opportunities to shine. Training was well done with the company.

    Pros

    Every day was a new challenge and the people were very supportive and helpful. Impressive quality control procedures at manufacturing plants.

    Cons

    Deadlines were fairly strict at times, with lots of hoops to jump through to get simple tasks completed and signed off.

    Advice to Management

    Keep an open mind and be flexible with the big picture when issues arise. Try to better understand what your direct reports have to go through to resolve these issues.

    Pros

    Very good work life balance Very stable company Great travel opportunities if you're in the right position

    Cons

    Very slow to move. Almost sclerotic. Death by 1000 meetings Low salary for the market

    Advice to Management

    Make employees feel like they have a say in things and make it possible to get something accomplished without endless meetings.

    Pros

    Cross-functional and global team environment, great salary and benefits, company provides opportunities for training, travel and additional education. R&D budgets are well funded. Very high expectations for product quality, reliability and meeting customer requirements. Co-workers are very helpful. Excellent employee retention rate.

    Cons

    The Ag and C&F business is cyclical. Even though Deere does a good job anticipating and reacting to market downturns, there are many pressures outside of Deere's control that affect the business (USDA Farm Bill, geopolitical relations, regulations, etc.)

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work in leading high-tech R&D for Ag equipment. Increase efforts to showcase the advanced technology included in your equipment.
