    I have been working at John Deere full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great company that is challenging and rewarding. Does have good benefits and good work environment. Great company to work for most of the time.

    Cons

    Typical work locations are in remote or less developed areas of the US, I.e. not located by or in large cities. Leadership is many times promoted too fast and can create issues for those with experience but not recognized for their capability.

    Advice to Management

    Be sure to continue to coach the leadership that the people are the greatest asset the company has and not treat them like a rental car when they are progressing through their stops up the corporate ladder.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at John Deere (Pune) in June 2012.

    Interview

    Had an initial telephonic interview that lasted for close to 45 minutes. Was called in for a face to face and had two interview rounds - HR first and technical later. All the interviewers were very positive and keen to understand my abilities and driving factors.

    Questions were generally on why and how of technology. There was a specific question on how you'd handle multi-gigs of data generated every day. Agile practices, TDD and other stuff on my resume was asked about.

    On completion, the lead recruiter even took me around the floor and we met some folks and got to see some of their tools in use at sites.

    The whole process was very positive, people were very helping, trying to see the best in you. Overall, it leaves you definitely wanting to join.
