Pros

Deere is consistently rated a great place to work. The opportunities for women and minorities are huge as Deere diversifies from historic male orientation in manufacturing and engineering. We are right on the Mississippi River for recreational fun. 2.5 hours from Chicago.

Cons

There is no public university in town, so cultural life is limited. Winter is a bit long. Employees are not rewarded for excellent customer service.

Advice to Management

Reward employees for excellent customer service. While hiring is diversifying, promotions are not. Analyze the demographics on employee promotions to diversify management.
