    I have been working at Oshkosh Corporation as an intern (more than a year)

    Pros

    For an internship, they are very flexible with students and will try to accommodate them as much as possible.

    Cons

    There can be periods of time where there isn't much work that an intern can do. There is also the matter of little training going on as well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have a pretty nice internship program, but you hire very few from it because you seem to only want senior level experience. You have plenty of valuable skills coming out of nearby colleges.

    Pros

    Flexible work environment with supportive co workers, great benefits and always working to improve. You can always find the help that you need to accomplish your tasks

    Cons

    Large corporation who has acquired several other smaller business which in turn result in the lack of cohesion. The company is working on trying to become one Oshkosh, however, with such a widespread amount of business units, it is a daunting task.

    I have been working at Oshkosh Corporation as an intern (more than a year)

    Pros

    Fantastic intern program & many career advancement/learning opportunities

    Cons

    Certain managers do not care what your school schedule is and demand minimum of 30 hours a week while in class and to fit most of those hours in during "business hours."

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Relax "hourly requirements" for interns. Would have still worked 30+ hrs a week while in school, but know others who were aggravated by it.

    Current Employee - 201 Assembler in Oshkosh, WI

    I have been working at Oshkosh Corporation full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good pay for the area as a blue collar worker. Fairly clean environment. Great pride in building Awesome trucks for our military men and women!

    Cons

    Employees treated poorly on a daily basis. Safety was not a priority unless brought to the attention at a higher level of management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees and follow suit to their issues. Clear to see that the major problems were never heard by the higher Brass until the employees said something at the quarterly meetings. Then the issues were miraculously resolved within 15 minutes!

    I have been working at Oshkosh Corporation full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I believe in their mission to protect those (Warfighters), who protect us. The vehicles Oshkosh makes are second to none, they are quality vehicles that literally save lives everyday.
    The benefits are fair.

    Cons

    HR and some members of the leadership team treat people (even a salaried employee like myself) as a number and don't take individual circumstances into consideration. The management is top-down only. Those with ideas or concerns on the bottom (manager and down) do not have a voice and will not be heard.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to those that are doing the work at the bottom and mid-levels, give them a forum, give them a voice. Leadership does not have a handle on what is happening at those levels and they continue to make changes without asking those people their thoughts. In many cases, the changes end up doing more harm than good. If you would ask people at the manager level and below for insight, you can prevent a lot of unnecessary hardship as well as saving time and money.

    I have been working at Oshkosh Corporation full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    It has a demanding customer, and is a fast paced manufacturer. There are plenty of opportunities for improvements, and the chance to work on many big projects. Products are very cool, and serving the customer is rewarding.

    Cons

    The expectation of working more hours. Never ending work load and a lack of training. Old-boy network controls promotions, and there is an overall resistance to change.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Share the wealth, low raises are an insult. Actually show that you value your workforce by listening to them. Maybe consider embracing 20th century (or even 21st!) management methods.

    I have been working at Oshkosh Corporation full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Overall good place to work minus management..great pay and good benefits.. Met alot of great people who I work with also.

    Cons

    clueless management and lack of knowledge on how to properly run departments and not willing to listen to production employees when given advice on something.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to learn to work with production employees alot better.. When given ideas on how to make our jobs easier listen to us and not ignore us and do it your own ways.. Need to put safety and quality first and not always numbers over quality... Do quality over numbers and alot of money would not be wasted doing work over several times to fix an issue.
