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

    Pros

    Helpful and friendly co-workers, clean and safe work environments, career development orientated. Reward those who move around locations and functional areas. Really protect salaried employees in downturns and challenging business climates. Full of really great managers, involved in the community.

    Cons

    Naturally in a gigantic company like Deere, poor, short term decisions can be made, budgets can be cut, dollars spent in the wrong areas.

    Advice to Management

    Hire fewer contingents, more full time salaried employees.
