Disapproves of CEO

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.

    I have been working at Oshkosh Corporation full-time (More than 3 years)

    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!
