      Pros

      I have worked on John Deere payroll for around 11 years, It's good product based company. The package I received and revision on salary was competitive to market. Also received fair amount of travel opportunities as and when it was need for position or job role.

      Cons

      Internal Job posting should need some process changes also to maintain transparency and not to waste time on interview if position is prefilled or does not qualify for internal hire.
