    I have been working at John Deere full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I have noticed that Deere treats their employees very well. Lots of benefits and the work environment is fun and rewarding.

    Cons

    It was very challenging coming into the work place. New people, procedures, and responsibilities. It took me a while to get the hang of things.

    Advice to Management

    Keep trying to guide us to what helps the company and get to know the people that you work under and understand their personality.

    No Opinion of CEO

    I have been working at John Deere full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - Fast paced work environment - Ability to advance is only limited by yourself - Encouraged to be creative in problem solving - Able to wear many hats and gain good experience - Ability to visit other factories and network quite easily - Countless opportunities to be involved in intriguing projects

    Cons

    - Dozens of systems and acronyms to learn in an overwhelming environment (at first) - At Ottumwa Works, many pieces of manufacturing equipment are worn out - One sometimes feels like small fish in a large ocean - Job hierarchy is tedious; it is sometimes a chore to get things done

    Advice to Management

    Do more to make employees feel as if they are doing a job well done. Appreciation goes a long way in such an intense and usually unforgiving environment.
