I worked at Oshkosh Corporation full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

The company builds trucks for the military that saves lives. In addition Oshkosh builds fire trucks and snow plows. All of the trucks are the best.

Cons

The company does not have current state of the art business systems. Their accounting, billing, estimating and purchasing systems are weak.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Purchase an ERP system such as Oracle or SAP.

    Pros

    I would say that the people are great. Mid-level and senior management almost have all worked their way up from the lower levels, so they are easily approachable, no-nonsense and knowledgeable. Benefits are good. Preferential treatment is given to current employees for positions. Upward moves into different types of positions are usually easier than within your current job designation (for example, if you are an admin, moving into contracts or project management, rather than to an executive level admin).

    Cons

    No lunchrooms (there are kitchens), projects often require lots of overtime from all staff, however many people see the project (often for military) as vitally important not only to the business but for our soldiers as well, so the overtime is usually not viewed as a huge inconvenience. Administrative promotions are usually not based on performance, but done personally.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase communication between departments and divisions, really work on the One-Oshkosh philosophy. When undergoing new projects talk to the admins, they know what is going on and usually have useful input.

    Pros

    Oshkosh Truck offers someone the opportunity to develop yourself as a person and as a leader. There are plenty of opportunities for challenging yourself.

    Cons

    The shifts are kind of awkward and makes it so that it is hard to have time for anything else for you to do with your day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep in mind the thoughts of the workers, if management works for them the workers will work harder for the management.
