    Pros

    In the IT side of Corporate, the environment is mostly positive. Most of the managers (from upper mid, to the front lines) try to involve employees in the decision making. A definite 'invest in getting it done' attitude. Pay isn't bad, and the benefits package is pretty good, and the offices can be crowded but extremely functional.

    Cons

    They need to ensure that 'getting it done' includes 'the right way' as some managers (especially in the segments) 'cheap out' and then complain it doesn't work. Senior management can a bit directionless with how hard to press forward with projects. The hours can get crazy because nobody wants any downtime, but that's not unusual for IT.

    Advice to Management

    We might be ONE Oshkosh a little quicker if they'd pay a little more AND crack a few segment heads that don't want change.

    Pros

    Compared to many other corporate environments, Oshkosh has a very down-to-earth structure, and is alright spending money where it's reasonably needed.

    Cons

    Unfortunately many of the Oshkosh locations are in relatively remote towns with little in the way of fun for interns.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on doing what you're doing - it's working quite well. I was presently surprised with how beneficial my time with Oshkosh was.


  10. Overall, positive, but frustration regarding career advancement policies.

    Pros

    Great people to work with at a company that really makes a difference in many lives.

    Cons

    One of the main challenges I have experienced is that like many companies advancement is slower and when advancement happens raises are uncompetitive with what an outside candidate would receive. Negotiation during internal offers is not tolerated.

    Advice to Management

    Eliminate rules that dictate how much an employee can advance when changing positions and make offers to internal candidates competitive with what an external candidate would be offered. Be willing to negotiate on the terms of an internal job offer.
