"It is a 182 year old company that still has very conservative views. In fairness some units and departments are more progressive and it does depend on your units leadership."
"Despite constant messaging of Diversity and Inclusion, this is still an old, white, boys club. The Board is not diverse and neither is the C Suite."
"An old, white, boys' club culture still exists here. There are men working here that have no direct reports. There male managers here who treat female employees differently than male employees. If you have a good manager, you may have a shot at a good career here. Sadly, there are many managers here who do not do a good job, but manage to get promoted based on who they know (other white men) and not their skills."

"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."

"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. "
"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)."
"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."
"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."
"I worked as a contracted employee for several years, then was hired. Absolutley loved all my positions except the last one, but stuck with it. I wanted to be on the install team and did do a few, but not when the new system came out. Basically a very good company to work for. Male dominated management, but does seem to be bringing more women up."
