Pros

John Deere is a very stable company with ties in the agriculture market that is the money maker and backbone of the business. Have a strong upper management with a good vision that is goal driven to the future in order to be successful and stay competitive.

Cons

Conservative company (can be viewed as bad/good), new ideas and innovative ideas are sometimes difficult sell. Locations for work are not highly sought after places to live. Promotions can be limited and not all locations are aligned for employee and management structure with regards to pay and labor grades.

Advice to Management

Need to focus on bringing in young leaders in the business and developing them into becoming future leaders. Hiring contract workers for important positions is short term thinking and need to bring in and offer full time employment to retain strong employees.

    Pros

    Good pay, flexible hours in some groups, great company name recognition

    Cons

    Very formal company, not forward-thinking. Very stuck in their ways sometimes and afraid of change. Need to do more unique things for their employees to make jobs more enjoyable and give incentive to stay. Compensation is great because they don't do a lot outside of pay.

    Pros

    Relaxed environment
    Job stability
    Everyone loves their job
    Promotion opportunities

    They also treat their employees like gold, and their intern program is great.

    Cons

    Locations aren't that great if you like the city. However, if you're from an Ag background or don't care for huge cities this company is perfect.

    Advice to Management

    I truly have no complaints when it comes down to management. There are some politics, but nothing major that would/should alter your decision.
