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 Management

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

    I worked at Oshkosh Corporation full-time

    Pros

    Oshkosh is the market leader in tactical wheeled vehicles for all branches of the military. They make GREAT vehicles. Recent emphasis in the global market is encouraging.

    Cons

    Oshkosh does not see the big picture when it comes to life cycle customer support. The aftermarket support is minimal at best and not taken seriously by upper leadership

    Advice to Management

    Research other business segments, like aviation, to better understand the revenue potential after the sale of the vehicle to the customer. Way too much emphasis is given to the next big contract when more emphasis should be supporting the customers Oshkosh already has.

    Advice to Management

    The happiest day of my professional life was when I left OSK. I can say I miss my co-workers, but that is the extent of my nostalgia.
