    I worked at John Deere full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The people are so nice and respectful. Classic midwest nice attitude. So much opportunity for pay raises by switching groups and amazing bonus’s at the end of the year. Usually 5k-10k If you’ve worked a full year. 1 and 1/2 weeks off for Christmas and new years due to factory shutdown.

    Cons

    It’s not sunny California in the midwest.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up hiring great people and awesome talent.

    I have been working at John Deere full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Compensation and benefits are competitive. Work culture is pretty laid back, the company listens to employees and make improvement based on employee surveys.

    Cons

    Some locations, especially in the Midwest, are hard to live in if you're not from the Midwest. Iowa is an acquired taste.

    Advice to Management

    Be cognizant of the changing working habits of younger engineers. Work styles and culture are different than what older generations are used to. Recognize and encourage out-of-the-box thinking.
