I met a lot of good people there, but due to their contract with my staffing agency no chance for a permenant job .

I worked at Oshkosh Corporation full-time for more than a year

Pros

Simply put it was the co-workers , good people & hard workers.

Cons

Product, both incoming and outgoing was priority one, workers were replaceable , on a daily basis if required.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Give the people working for you the feeling that they mean as much to the company as the products they move, load, and unload . Keeping 98% of the core work force on a permenant yet temporary status fails to foster personal pride in the jobs being performed or to the company they are working for. Lack of health care and benefits due to non permenant employment is also very negative among the work force.

    I worked at Oshkosh Corporation full-time for 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.

    I have been working at Oshkosh Corporation

    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.
