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.
