Pros

Stable company that has been around since 1850's. If you got in before 2001, your benefits and pay are great as you receive not only a company pension, but additions to your 401k and bonus is greater than newer employees.

Cons

The corporate culture has changed tremendously since going public in the 80's. New employees after 2001 no longer receive the benefits 70% of the salaried force have.

Advice to Management

Go back to the old benefits...

    Pros

    Company you can be proud of. Solid Pay and opportunities. Challanging work and a multitude of different areas of business you can work in. Senior Management is pushing the company in the right direction and they continue to remain strong in a troubled economy. Most employees are friendly and generally want to see eachother do well. Not a cut throat environment. Diversified business's allow me to feel safe in working at Deere no matter what an individual business is doing.

    Cons

    Sometimes hard to understand why people are getting promoted. Also the company tends to not deal with poor performers well.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure there are clear tracks to promotions.


  2. "Satisfied."
