Compensation

John Deere offers a competitive compensation package that includes:

  • Base pay – the fixed salary you receive on a regular basis
  • Variable pay – may include annual cash bonuses, stock options, and other longer-term cash awards 

 

Our total compensation philosophy is to pay for performance. This philosophy is used throughout the company to reward employees in alignment with company and individual performance. Your individual performance impacts your base pay, while variable pay depends on company performance. Our goal is to be competitive in each respective market, so we align our base pay to the middle of what the market pays.  When maximum variable pay goals are achieved, total compensation is paid at the top of the market.
