    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.

    I have been working at AGCO full-time (More than 3 years)

    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.

    I worked at AGCO full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    compensation and benefits, though stock is highly restricted

    Cons

    management structure is aligned to infighting and sub-optimal decision making. Not a global company, but a multi-national one. Brand loyalty within the ranks is appalling, and the CEO? Time for new blood.

    Advice to Management

    to the board - please find a new CEO and lose the bizarre regional chest pounding/divisiveness.

    I worked at AGCO full-time

    Pros

    There are no Pros about this place. Its a rat hole.

    Cons

    Communication sucks even between teams from Manager downwards. Weak and unethical management. There is no transparency at all. Managers just care for their numbers by using methods that are not good at all.

    Advice to Management

    some top leaders including head HR, BR needs to Resign and clear way for new people.

    I have been working at AGCO full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I was able to learn about the equipment I am supporting through hands on training at the factory and in the field. Good team support when help is needed to diagnose/correct issues with machines. Good work environment where people are friendly. Hesston is a nice town to live/work in.

    Cons

    Need more good workers on our team!

    Advice to Management

    Buy some ice cream for the team once in a while.

    Pros

    Good benefits and PTO. I like how we use DayforceHCM for self HR help and PTO requests. Company does try to communicate with employees about layoffs and business predictions

    Cons

    No personal development help. I would like help in self improvement but the company currently doesn't offer this. Send us to seminars in our respective fields please

    Advice to Management

    Help develop staff with tuition payment
