    The 401k match is excellent

    401k is great for everyone

    The 401K is one of the greatest benefits. They will match up to 6%, but each percentage match is varying to a really high level. If you begin as an intern, open your 401K then. The healthcare plan is competitive as well - through unitedhealthcare. For a single individual, it’s about $40 a month. They also will contribute $700 to an HSA if you contribute as well. If you intern and have 1 year of service, you start off with 10 days vacation on top of 11 company holidays. They cannot be floating holidays. They will reimburse gym membership $120 a year. Males get 4 weeks paternity leave.

    401k is a major benefit with company match. One of the best I’ve seen.

    Fantastic 401(k) match that employees should take advantage of as well as continuing education and PTO. 401(k) match - Company will put in 10% if employee puts in 6%.

    Best 401(k) match I have ever heard of!

    Best benefit is the 401k match at 6%. The health insurance is not great, $3800 deductible in network with a $140/month premium for a family. Deere gives $1400 for the HSA which helps, but look forward to high copays. Max out of pocket over $6500. Vision only covers an exam every other year, crappy discount on lens or glasses. Dental is also horrible, if you don't use the one or two offices in town, expect to pay $120 for a cleaning. This is why they allow you to use a Limited Use FSA...Which is capped at $2650. Only recently does Deere offer 4wks paid leave when you adopt or have a kid. If you want kids though, you better have good genes or have $$$ to cover infertility treatments or adoption fees. Employee discount is no more than 10%...don't expect to see a tractor on the list. Pension is offered, but don't plan on it unless you stay with Deere until you retire.

    No infertility benefits. I’ve worked at other manufacturing plants locally, in Fargo, that have these. If you are going through that, it can be a game changer to be covered.

    If you put in 6% for 401k, John Deere matches 10%, on top of that they have a pension plan. Because of plant shut down there is great time off during the holidays and great time off in general. Health insurance could be better.
