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

Pros

Good pay, benefits & bonuses. Vacation time is generous.

Cons

They preach work-life balance. Did you notice in that sentence work is first? It's not a coincidence.

Advice to Management

Let your engineers do what they are paid to do. Keep an eye on low level managers, some of them are out of control. Sometimes it's not micro-managing, it's pico-managing!

    I worked at John Deere as a contractor

    Pros

    Nice training program, great follow up to help achieve superior customer service.

    Cons

    Company thinks little of retaining loyal employees. Tends to lay off perm workers and temp staff frequently to rehire later at a lessor rate. Horrible insurance package for the amount of money the company brings in. Insurance benefits are set for young people who never have to go to doctor and too expensive for those who do.

    Advice to Management

    Like many companies, corporate profit is more important than what original founder set company to be.

    I have been working at John Deere part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    wonderful people with good hearts, the company has a desire to retain employees and to provide the opportunity to grow (full tuition coverage for Grad School and grants for undergrad students)

    Cons

    Very difficult to move up or around - stuck, mentorship is lacking

    Advice to Management

    schedule one on one's with employees that are truly one on one's (my mentor was allowed to always sit in which didn't allow me the opportunity to voice my opinion about what was truly going on with my mentor)
