    It is a great pleasure to come to work every day and be a part of this ever changing and growing company. Coworkers are easy going and always willing to help you succeed. Management provides you the tools necessary to complete your daily tasks and are always willing to make changes to improve the working conditions. There are frequently opportunities to advance within the company to make a larger impact and grow your career and AGCO provides the resources necessary to do so and encourage it.

    I have been working at AGCO full-time

    Pros

    AGCO Corporation is committed to employee growth and advancement, most departments prefer to promote from within which gives a great avenue to better yourself. They offer an extremely competitive benefits package.

    Cons

    Some of the positions in different departments require more travel than I would like, which other people may prefer.

    Advice to Management

    I would prefer a wider pay range for top performing employees versus employees who only meet the minimum requirement.

    Pleasant working environment, flexible environment. Plenty of opportunities and freedom to learn more about the products and on occasion initiate improvements. Benefits are above average if negotiated prior to accepting a position.

    AGCO does not recognize, compensate nor make the effort to retain talented contributors to the organization.

    Pros

    Flexibility in the schedule is great and the employees are extremely knowledgeable. The company has a lot of potential because of the experience and knowledge of the employees.

    Cons

    Employees are not viewed as an asset. Management does not keep employees engaged or updated on what’s going on the opportunity to move up is minimal.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your employees and you will keep good people longer. It will also increase morale.

    I worked at AGCO full-time

    Pros

    Good Pay, Sort of good benefits. Wonderful location is you like small town living

    Cons

    Need to treat the Job as if a contractor. Constant Layoffs/hires/reorganization as needed from project to project. For factory workers it's worse. Layoff every year then hope you get called back.

    Advice to Management

    Increase PTO benefits. 7 years to move from 2 weeks to 3 weeks vacation is poor. Be more flexible in moving from 80's technology to the modern world.

    Pros

    Great compensations and benefits. Depending on the department, if you have a good leader in your department, it is a great company to work for.

    Cons

    The manufacturing workers are resistance to change, which is pretty typical in the manufacturing world. Some employees do not listen to and respect younger employees (Millennials) ideas.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more younger people for the manufacturing sites, they have more ideas that could be great insights for the company overall.
