I have been working at John Deere full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Great workplace with fantastic culture of enabling teams to do what's necessary to succeed. Coworkers are intelligent and great to work with. Company has been around for 175 years and has great business prospects for the future.

Cons

While some of Deere's younger businesses and acquisitions are definitely not manufacturing, senior management continues to organize business units as manufacturing cost/profit centers.

Advice to Management

Continue the trend of enabling decisions to be made at lower levels. Further promote telecommuting as a way to benefit both employees and the company. Invest in business opportunities based on the risk/reward they present, not on the cost/profit they have exhibited to date.
