    I have been working at John Deere full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Interesting and challenging work. Friendly co-workers. Great teamwork.
    Modest efforts have been made in recent years to correct some imbalances in resources and compensation. Moving in the right direction.

    Cons

    No technical career path...except on paper.
    There is a big difference in resources between different locations.
    There is a big difference in responsibility versus compensation between locations and also across product lines.
    HR seems to be so worried about getting sued that they will create a lawsuit for themselves. Good technical people are made into managers...making bad managers with no good technical help.

    Advice to Management

    Understand that your employees know as much or more about what goes on than you do. We are insulted when told misleading answers or motivations.

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

    Pros

    - Great pay and benefits, fairly easy to move up & around within the company, great relocation packages, good values, ethical, treats their employees with respect.

    Cons

    Very process oriented - which can be a good thing. But it can also slow things down. Also sometimes it seems like it takes too many people to make one decision. A little too "metric-oriented."

    Advice to Management

    I'm sure this happens with many big companies, but it might help to get some insight from the people doing the day to day jobs to see how the things they implement affect employees.
