    I worked at AGCO full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule enables you to adjust your work days as needed to fit personal commitments. Occasional work from home days are available as well.

    Cons

    Accounting/Finance is filled with incompetent people, from the management down to the individual contributors (there are a few exceptions). Very high turnover and low caliber hirings result in a bunch of people going through the motions without having a clue what they're actually doing. Additionally, the groups are significantly understaffed, resulting in even more errors and issues. Managers have no idea how to manage people, and are mostly focused on doing their own work.
