If you agree with someone, you are accepting their ideas or opinions. When you and another person or group of people agree on something, it means you agree on a specific decision, such as the terms to a deal, contract, job proposal, or even a governmental bill or law. If you agree on an action that needs to be taken, you agree to do something.
Ex: After a three hour meeting, the politicians agreed on a new pact to increase the hourly pay of low income employees such as waiters, cashiers, and restaurant dishwashers.
