Company Culture

Older retirees were given cola and excellent health benefits. That ended about 20 years ago; you only get what you were promised then - no cola.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Older workers are enticed to retire early by retirement programs. Then pay and health benefits remained fixed for life.

Company Culture

The culture is old school thinking with regards to not moving and supporting initiatives to foster team and support. All the "company" cares about is ROI, OROI and regurgitating buzzwords from NYTimes best selling books

Support from management

Dysfunctional and lacks any form of consistency throughout the company

Teamwork

From Engineering to IT to Accounting they tout Teamwork, however it is not fostered.

Freedom to work independently

Plenty of opportunities to show off your skillsets yet go nowhere for years.

Internal Communication

The "company" wants to try to keep it's employees in the loop both how the individual divisions are running and will occasionally quiz it's employees to see if there were listening to CEO & other leadership speak

Career Development

Another item that Deere touts is training and career development. They want you to take time but then have a tendency to make you feel bad for taking time to enhance your skillsets

Work-Life Balance

This is subjective to each person and determinant upon the position and department they were part of. I was part of IT and there was little work/life balance even though management "said" they cared it was always hinted that you "should" do more.

Company Image

They care everything about their image to the world and they sometimes do it at the cost of their own employees

Job Security

As with any company you are expendable

Suggestions for improvement

  • Stop being so conservative and not let the Ag and Financial divisions run the company direction. They have potential but when you work for IT in the company you get a boot in the back too many times. Better, liberal and open-minded companies out there...don't settle for this one.

What I like about the company

From an IT standpoint there is nothing to like about John Deere or Deere & Company. Find another employer if you are in IT, engineering or accounting

What I dislike about the company

Hypocritical in corporate speak. They say they care about their employees but they run them into the ground...too high of expectations for projects with minimal budgets and outcomes
