    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Used to have good pay and benefits. No longer worth the trouble. You will be much happier working somewhere else for less money.

    Cons

    Company doesn't self invest. Appears like their ready for a quick exit strategy. Layers upon layers of management with no accountability or decision making. Broken tools, bad parts, ridiculuos tack times, and endless cleaning duties. You're never gonna win. .

    Advice to Management

    Executives need to start paying attention to what's going on down on the floor and get to the root of the problems. Get him outta here.

    I worked at Oshkosh Corporation full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good paying job for Oshkosh and good support for surrounding businesses.

    Cons

    Working overtime all the time and still continuous layoffs. Always running out of parts because of purchasing.

    Advice to Management

    Just because you hire kids fresh out of college doesn't mean they know how to run a company. Need to quit blaming employees for their mistakes. Hopefully there will be progress in Oshkosh as promised when they extended the contract to keep work in Oshkosh.

    Pros

    Some great leadership talent throughout. Defense is passionate.

    Cons

    No diversity. Not a very good work environment, competitive vs team oriented. Not enough consistency or collaboration across segments.

    Advice to Management

    Diversify talent. Consistency in business systems. Focus on improving culture. I believe the company struggles because there is no focus on its people.

    Pros

    Stable work, and the customers are interesting.

    Cons

    Medical benefits are third-world class'

    Advice to Management

    Benefits will keep the best employees. Benefits are worth 20%+ of fair compensation. A Salary or hourly wage is only part of the package.


  7. Entry job right out of college.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    A good first job to have coming out of college with lots of oppurtunities to work on big projects and have direct impacts to processes.

    Cons

    The expectation of working a lot of hours. A culture to work harder vs smarter and the typical glares if only working an 8 hour day.


  8. Enjoyable and fun, yet challenging and demanding. Overall a great place to work at.

    I have been working at Oshkosh Corporation full-time

    Pros

    The work is challenging and is team oriented. Management can be demanding, but allows employees to take ownership and initiative to succeed. Sometimes feels a bit directionless, but that provides opportunities for team oriented employees to step up and take the lead. Co-workers are great and helpful. Management in my division is very team positive, open to personal initiative, encourages ideas, innovation and have high company values. If you are a team player, come in everyday committed to do your best, be supportive and understand that company shortcomings are opportunities to your career, then you'll find this a great place.

    Cons

    Can be demanding and stressful for both managers and employees (which is why many comment on manager demands). Can sometimes require long hours for salaried employees. Can often seem one person short of a full team (or there's not enough hours in the day to finish tasks).

    Advice to Management

    Consider more company news and accomplishment sharing with employees. More empathy with union employees might go a long way. Overall, management is very good, but the energy does not seem to flow down as well as could be.
