    I have been working at John Deere full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great company that is challenging and rewarding. Does have good benefits and good work environment. Great company to work for most of the time.

    Cons

    Typical work locations are in remote or less developed areas of the US, I.e. not located by or in large cities. Leadership is many times promoted too fast and can create issues for those with experience but not recognized for their capability.

    Advice to Management

    Be sure to continue to coach the leadership that the people are the greatest asset the company has and not treat them like a rental car when they are progressing through their stops up the corporate ladder.

    Pros

    John Deere is a good stable company to work for. They treat their employees fairly with good benefits and work-life balance.

    Cons

    It is a manufacturing company and they are increasingly focusing on that as the core of the company so if you aren't in that core area there seems to be a drive to lower costs and outsource.
