    Good old boy network, long hours, little to no recognition

    Get rid of the good old boy network, embrace the employee's that do the work and try and work with the union instead of against it.

    Large corporation who has acquired several other smaller business which in turn result in the lack of cohesion. The company is working on trying to become one Oshkosh, however, with such a widespread amount of business units, it is a daunting task.

    I worked at Oshkosh Corporation full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The people were very friendly and the compensation and benefits were outstanding. The working conditions were above average, the facilities were clean and heated in the winter.

    Cons

    Employment availability was totally dependent upon the US Government. They would award the company contracts and then cancel them, leaving you without a job. There was no open door policy there, you had no way to speak to upper management, and at times lower management could be very unfair about things. They would sign an employment contract and then brake every condition of the contract possible. Would take years to resolve grievances.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time paying attention to what is actually happening on the floors of your company. You need to make a greater effort to get along with the workforce.

    Pros

    Good pay for the area as a blue collar worker. Fairly clean environment. Great pride in building Awesome trucks for our military men and women!

    Cons

    Employees treated poorly on a daily basis. Safety was not a priority unless brought to the attention at a higher level of management.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees and follow suit to their issues. Clear to see that the major problems were never heard by the higher Brass until the employees said something at the quarterly meetings. Then the issues were miraculously resolved within 15 minutes!

    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.

    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.
