    Pros

    Excellent growth strategy. Plenty of opportunities to grow professionally. Management has provided the tools necessary to create a culture that is focused on process improvement. Generally management seems to care about their employees and does a good job of communicating to their employees.

    Cons

    Everyone from outside of Wisconsin thinks you work for the Oshkosh B'gosh clothing company when you tell them where you work. Being located in Oshkosh, WI.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to invest in the employees. Be better at building personal relationships with employees at all levels of the organization.

    Pros

    Good paying job for Oshkosh and good support for surrounding businesses.

    Cons

    Working overtime all the time and still continuous layoffs. Always running out of parts because of purchasing.

    Advice to Management

    Just because you hire kids fresh out of college doesn't mean they know how to run a company. Need to quit blaming employees for their mistakes. Hopefully there will be progress in Oshkosh as promised when they extended the contract to keep work in Oshkosh.

    Pros

    Stable work, and the customers are interesting.

    Cons

    Medical benefits are third-world class'

    Advice to Management

    Benefits will keep the best employees. Benefits are worth 20%+ of fair compensation. A Salary or hourly wage is only part of the package.


  7. Entry job right out of college.

    Pros

    A good first job to have coming out of college with lots of oppurtunities to work on big projects and have direct impacts to processes.

    Cons

    The expectation of working a lot of hours. A culture to work harder vs smarter and the typical glares if only working an 8 hour day.

    Pros

    They really take care of you in the US and when it comes to training.

    Senior management is in it for themselves. Ruined good leadership in the field.

    Stop micro managing FSR leadership and let them do their job.

    Pros

    Excellent pay.. wide variety of job opportunies and excellent benefits

    Cons

    Too much push push let's rush to hit the numbers and not enough management caring about the quality of the product

    Advice to Management

    Pull your head out of your tail and learn to actually listen to what employees have to say and their ideas instead of treating them like crap and shutting them out.
