    Overall, a good place to work.

    Advanced Production Assembler (Former Employee) Forest City, IA

    ProsI had seven different bosses in 22 years, and all but one were great to work for. The job could be dirty and sweaty, but it was good overall.

    ConsHours are very market driven so they can go from twenty hours overtime to four day weeks in a couple weeks, and when things slow down, they can and will look for excuses to get rid of a few people: Emplyee half-life is around five years; Crappy, over-priced health insurance;

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    ConsNo regard for family or medical situations no matter how good and dedicated an employee you are.

    Advice to Senior ManagementShow some common courtesy & respect to your workers.

    It's amazing that Winnebago can turn a profit.

    Manufacturing Engineer (Current Employee) Forest City, IA

    ProsThere is a glimmer of hope that once some of the "good ol' boys" retire, there may be some positive change in culture and operations. There are some good employees, even a handful of great ones, but it is a shame that these people will struggle to introduce change.

    ConsMany employees in key positions are extremely unqualified. A 2-year technical degree is all that is required for the position of CEO and President. Unfortunately, this isn't even a joke. The story continues to be the same all of the way down through the ranks. Poor management decisions are made on a daily basis. Ideas that could improve profits, safety and morale are squashed instantly because that would mean "change", and "change is bad".

    Advice to Senior ManagementA real close look needs to be taken at the overall approach with the business. One cannot simply continue to buy back stocks, hand out officer/director bonuses and forget about the people that made that profit possible. A vast majority of employees have lost hope and have given up trying. Many good employees have realized this and have left already. I see more of this happening in the near future.
