    I have been working at John Deere full-time

    Pros

    Overall Deere is a great company to work for. The 401k match is second to none. There area lot of development opportunities and room for growth

    Cons

    2020 - current leadership changes and layoffs with the new strategy directly conflict with the "how" I've always come to expect with Deere.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at John Deere full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Decent benefits, great 401k match and a pension (but I heard new employees don't get a pension anymore, not sure if that is true?) Improved work from home policies since COVID19.

    Cons

    Cutting a lot of jobs for automation and digitization, even during a pandemic. New CEO is focused more on profits than people, always pushing more out of employees but they don't pay you more money. A lot of favoritism by managers, and really hard for women to advance. Not very many women in senior leadership or higher paying jobs.
