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

Outgrowing the location.
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.

The worst place I ever worked!
Technical Project Engineer (Former Employee) –  Hesston, KSOctober 22, 2018
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

Work Experience Depends on Your Manage
Senior Buyer-Global (Former Employee) –  Duluth, GASeptember 20, 2018
Ok place to work. The culture varies by who your particular manager is. Purchasing is a little unstable but that is due to the the management in place.

Depends on the department
Logistics Planner (Former Employee) –  Duluth, GASeptember 17, 2018
Being compensated well and treated fairly always depends on who the manager is at this company. Logistics is not recommended. There are other departments with a good outlook, like inside sales. I could not with a good conscience recommend anyone work in Logistics.
Pros
Good benefits
Cons
Manager, no advancement in Logistics, long hours, weekends

Excellent place to work.
Maintenance Technician (Current Employee) –  Assumption, ILSeptember 15, 2018
AGCO is an great place to work. Compensation is great along with the benefits. The 401K savings plan is based on your annual base pay rate. Therefore any over time is not included.

The only flaw is during slow times there are lay-offs and short work weeks. If not for this aspect, there is not a better manufacturing environment to work.
Pros
Pay, benefits, work environment.
Cons
Lay-offs

Global Supplier Quality Intern (Former Employee) –  Duluth, GASeptember 10, 2018
Excellent self-motivating environment helped me to learn new things every day.
Be it my manager or colleagues, people are kind and are more willing to help and have supported towards my learning curve.
On overall being an Intern, a perfect ambience and great culture one could get to develop multi-dimensional skills.
Pros
Positive environment, Flexibility, Great Culture

Run away and don't look back
Global Commodity Manager (Current Employee) –  Duluth, GASeptember 5, 2018
Way behind where the company needs to be against competition and technology; operating systems, purchasing processes, and procedures. Leadership creates an unnecessary chaotic environment, expect unrealistic deadlines and tasks to be met without failure. Lack of data to collect facts in order to be able to make fact based decisions, despite accomplishing the impossible, when ready to execute you are reminded you have no authority, every decision gets questioned and micro managed, then changed in scope so managers can take credit for the ideas, everyone is in it for themselves and no recognition even for difficult accomplishments that benefits the organization. Managers will not lead, show the path to success, nor help professional development, no new learning opportunities nor advancement opportunities unless you are a friend or in the club. The culture in the purchasing department is toxic, morale is low to the point where people are leaving as soon as they complete their 2 year relocation contract, very high turnover. Individuals are not respected for their expertise and are discouraged to share ideas and keep their opinions to themselves, everyone follows the "Don't upset the status quo", it is not broke, let's not upset our comfort level for any improvement mentality, impossible to challenge the stakeholders for breakthrough ideas that will generate value to the organization. Managers approach the employees with a "The beating continues until moral increases" mind set and will micro manage. I do not recommend working for AGCO's purchasing department and don't approve of  more... the current leadership style, which is more like military and not synergistic/team work.  less
Pros
Talented and nice people to interact, fair compensation + ok benefit, nice corporate building
Cons
Toxic culture, disrespectful managers and cut throat culture, long hours of work with no rewards, very high deductible on medical insurance

Productive for the most part.
Technical Metrics Analyst (Current Employee) –  Hesston, KSAugust 20, 2018
Depending on the projects I'm involved in my day can vary. A typical day usually involves a few meetings with hours in between to get work completed. Some tasks require out of the box thinking to figure out how best to complete reports or presentations. I enjoy the reporting aspects of my position and the testing of new systems. The least enjoyable aspect is working with internal Field Reps as they are not always quick to respond. The office environment is generally calm and quiet. Although working in a cubicle while on meeting calls can be difficult when conversations are being carried on right next to you.
