    Pros

    Culture, advancement opportunities if your willing to move around, competitive pay.

    Iowa based company, so not many great locations to work from. Iowa is decent May through November.

    Quit changing bonus structure to bolster stock price on the back of employees.

    People and work environment is good, I have not had any issues in the past 8 years. It’s a employee focused company and you can see they care about their workers.

    I worked at John Deere full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Company with a long history, well known brand, never fires anyone even when they have earned termination.

    Cons

    Good ol boys club. Young men are groomed for promotion and wind up in the good ol boys club They know better but some kind of group think or crazy group dynamic takes over and they begin to participate in the harassment. Look at the audit staff, harvester, and parts.

    Advice to Management

    #METOO Stop turning a blind eye to the harassment of women Don't just move the offender to a new position when there is a documented complaint. Apologies are fine but when the behavior continues action needs to be taken. Some of those guys have been moved more than once as a result of documented complaints. It's disappointing that Deere does not take the harassment of women seriously.

    I worked at John Deere full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Competitive pay, solid benefits package, great variable comp opportunities. Company mission is also very endearing.

    Cons

    Company has gone all in on diversity to the point diverse people are being put in positions they are not ready for at the expense of white males. Also has done a lot of mid-career hiring from top schools into middle management and they are only interested in self promotion and visibility. Servant leadership has given way to self serving leadership.

    Advice to Management

    The recent mid-career hires from top schools need to understand they don't know everything and should listen to people doing the work.

    I worked at John Deere full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Deere is a well-managed company with a great history. Its products help feed the world, and the firm genuinely cares about customers, dealers, and employees. For those willing to relocate throughout the duration of their career, the opportunities are large.

    Cons

    Frequent relocation unless you are willing to only live in the QCA, Des Moines, or Waterloo.

    Advice to Management

    Deere is getting too distant from its dealers - with the reduction of the size of the field sales team, and with dealers much bigger capabilities, there is a lot less dealer and retail knowledge finding its way back to the company. This is hurting decision making and restraining opportunities at the retail level.

    I worked at John Deere as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    The salary and benefits are very generous for an internship. Projects are challenging and engaging, and you'll learn so much. If you do a great job during your internship, you are on a direct path to the Supply Management Development Program.

    Cons

    Interns who have standout abilities and work ethic may be swept aside if they are not willing to relocate for the Development Program.

    Advice to Management

    Discuss other John Deere career paths outside of the Development Program. Pay attention to each high-performing intern's career goals and investigate all opportunities that might fit them.
