    Pros

    Great development of people, strong alignment of goals between leadership and different groups, and great managers. A very standardized company which I feel leads to less disorganization that companies I've been in where it is highly disorganized due to no standardization. Lastly, it was a company where you as an individual contributor felt very valued.

    Cons

    Most manufacturing locations are in small towns so if your not a small town person or middle western type individual you should pass on the company. The only con I had was with the health insurance as Deere only offers a HDHP.

    Advice to Management

    Continue with the strong guidance and focus on the people
