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

    Pros

    Good benefits, average pay, paid time off. No work on holidays. The people are what make the job bearable.

    Cons

    Lots of weekend work, lots of overtime. Management is always changing, bad communication between supervisors and employees.

    Advice to Management

    Make a plan and stick to it. Be more proactive with communication, don't leave your employees in the dark. Understand that working 70 hours a week isn't going to fix our issues when we run out of parts every day.
