Entry level opportunity
Welder/Fabricator (Former Employee) –  Omaha, NEFebruary 18, 2019
AGCO/GSI is a decent place for an entry level welder or anyone working in manufacturing but don't expect and career advancement or good raises. They have really good benefits and great PTO. One thing I always enjoyed was being able to get off with just a 24 hour notice if needed.
Pros
Good benefits
Cons
terrible management and low pay

Working at Agco
Assembly Worker (Former Employee) –  Beloit, KSFebruary 16, 2019
This place is high stress, very poorly unorganized scheduling, the demands that are put on the workers are unreasonable to the people who work on the production floor but the people who create the scheduling have no adverse effects on there work scheduling and demands on their lives to the point the job consumes much of your time for months on end then the scheduling is so poor that the work time required drops to 32 hours per week or furlough time. Which makes it very stressful financially.

Frabication (Former Employee) –  Hesston, KSJanuary 23, 2019
Dont like the fact that they habitually layoff workers every year. No matter if the person is an asset to the team if your number is up its up. There is a better way.
Pros
Hours
Cons
Layoffs

I enjoyed working with coworkers
Mig Welder (Former Employee) –  Hesston, KSJanuary 14, 2019
One of the worst things of working at AGCO is they seem to set you up to fail before you even start. You don't have the right tools not enough parts and then they act like it's your fault and then you have to work overtime because of their stupidity. And all you can get out of management is they point a finger at the other guy and it's his fault. The amount of over educated idiots in management is overwhelming!! Although most of my coworkers we're supportive. But that is not the situation in all areas!!! As far as the United steelworkers Union at AGCO it's A JOKE!!. The amount of layoffs is overwhelming to. I have seen people quit other jobs to come there and work for four months and then lose her job there. Just beware!
Pros
Good money/ and benefits.
Cons
You're nothing but a number/ you don't know how long you're going to work

Good pay but a stressful environment
Director of Product Strategy (Former Employee) –  Duluth, GANovember 15, 2018
Poor senior and upper level management. There doesn't seem to be focus and alignment and there is too much resistance to a changing environment. Lots of good people are there but unfortunately not enough of them are in positions of leadership. On the good side however, is they pay well and have excellent benefits.

Lack of standard processes & very manual procedures; hostile work environment
Manager (Current Employee) –  Duluth, GANovember 9, 2018
In the interview process they proclaim to want change; however, in actuality they do not embrace change, new people, or new ideas

They lack standard processes in vital areas such as accounting, payroll, quality, engineering, and planning

Workloads are unrealistic and there is no appreciation for going above and beyond

If you do not have agricultural experience they treat you as though you have no experience at all

Poor Management / no integrity
Accountant (Current Employee) –  Duluth, GAOctober 25, 2018
The accounting group is like a plantation. Their objective is to work you to death with little compensation and ZERO room for advancement and or recognition.

Management prides themselves of doing more with less. " A deadline is a deadline, whether you have to come early or leave late it will not change. Your sickness is your problem! We pay you a salary to get a job done, not for the hours you work." these are all exact comments I've herd over the last 2 years from both management and HR.

The department is very task driven and allows no time for due diligence. In the own words " just hard code it".
Cons
No integrity

Engineering Intern (Former Employee) –  Hesston, KSOctober 23, 2018
I was an intern at AGCO's Hesston site for two summers. The site had a mostly positive and productive vibe to it, but it was a bit crowded. There were specified tasks to which I was assigned as an intern, but after completion of those I ended up floating between departments a fair bit; given that I wasn't far along in my college education yet at the time, it was nice to be able to get a broad experience, but sometimes it felt a bit aimless.
Pros
Friendly employees and management.
Cons
Office was a bit crowded.

Upper management talks to you like you are stupid. The culture among coworkers is very toxic and abusive. I've never experienced such behavior in my entire working life.
Pros
Suppers on the company for releases
Cons
Abusive behavior

USW Union present plays a big role in my loyalty to the Heston site.
Production Welder (Former Employee) –  Hesston, KSOctober 16, 2018
Appreciate the working relationship between the Union and Corporate. A place you could retire from. Aside from the lack of a steady production schedule, and having to deal with the state unemployment policies and procedures, the Heston site is a good work place.
Pros
Union present
Cons
Layoffs/shutdowns

Director (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GAOctober 10, 2018
Leadership changing - will be changing again in 2 years or less, due to CEO leaving - does not have a long term focus, as senior leadership will not be there long term

Decent place to work with great local personnel
Sr. Design Engineer (Current Employee) –  Hesston, KSOctober 1, 2018
One of the best opportunities of working at AGCO is the ability to have an meaningful impact on the products they produce. A new product engineer has the ability to design hundreds of components/assemblies.
Design teams are generally small and individuals have larger responsibilities.
Due to the significant individual responsibility and work load, there is a great opportunity to learn various engineering disciplines and gain experience.
AGCO does not provide many opportunities for specialized training.
AGCO does some promoting from within, but not as much as they should.
Local management generally does a great job of leading and supporting their teams.
Upper management struggles to communicate direction and make decisions.
Pros
Local personnel are great to work with
Cons
Upper management gives poor direction and struggles to make decisions
