NavCom Technology Reviews
Pros – Company culture is based on respect and drive to excel. Fair amount of latitude to innovate and advance. Management tries to be responsive to employee needs. Relaxed environment.
Cons – NavCom's core technology is a small part of parent company's (John Deere) overall business resulting in Senior Management decisions that sometimes limit the pace or focus on product advancements.
Advice to Senior Management – Giving engineers more latitude to develop technologies that don't immediately serve Deere's direct needs can lead to greater and quicker tech development that will eventually payoff.
Pros – good office environment, nice people
Cons – lack of directions from senior management
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
Pros – The people are friendly and work well together.
Cons – John Deere is going through a Global Synergy transition which makes the reporting structure at NavCom confusing. Your direct reports may be in another country.
Advice to Senior Management – John Deere Senior Managment is needs a better understanding of the technology NavCom contributes to the end product (i.e. GPS receiver) and the steps needed to develop that technology.
