There are many opportunities for development and the compensation and benefits are great. It is a bit "old school" and embracing and adapting to new was of working (virtual for example) can be challenging for some managers to embrace.

It is still a mans world. You will be outnumbered on a constant basis, and have to continually prove yourself, and you still may not get the recognition or respect you deserve.

    Improve work-life balance and policies (e.g. flex-time, limit facetime)

  • Recommend to Women?

    Maybe. You will need to understand the limitations and be thick skinned. Walk in the right expectations.

Some areas are good but majority is still old school and good old boy mentality. Difficult to move positions because they restrict to you out of many positions because of pay grade jumping.

    Maybe. They have good benefits and paid maternity leave. Certain departments hand good work life balance but many don't like to be flexible and seem to hold that against you in meetings.

There is a significant effort to increase the number or women in the top leadership levels of the company. Mentors and sponsors are readily available for top talent and generally are very engaged. Downside is that we do not have paid maternity leave beyond what's required from a disability standpoint (6-8 weeks).

I haven't dealt with issues of not being treated equally but it is a very large company and I know that women in other areas of the company have had different experiences than I have.

While Deere is attempting to change its culture, it is still a male-dominated, conservative environment. "Wait-your-turn" leadership is an unstated principle that often works against diverse and/or female mid-career hires because Deere has many employees with 20+ years with the company.

    Maybe. Deere's middle management is full of men who have been with the company for their entire career. There is a history of tenure-based leadership opportunities (as opposed to skill-based). For women who are late career high level hires or for women who do not aspire to management, working at Deere could be a great experience.
