    I have been working at Oshkosh Corporation full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The People First program is great! My on-boarding process was the perfect way to start my career with Oshkosh. The people I have met and worked with have a positive outlook and are very helpful to me by encouraging me to ask any questions.

    I am excited and engaged by the work I have and the people I get to work with. I feel like I am growing again and able to make contributions that have an impact on company performance.

    Oshkosh encourages and promotes healthy practices for mind (work balance) and body (ergonomics, wellness programs). I will be taking advantage of these programs.

    Cons

    It takes a bit of time to learn the organization. Will be much easier when the new HQ building is done and people are not all spread out.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the momentum of People First going.

    Pros

    Management Integrity; Highly respect for employees, customers and other external business partners; Strong financial viability.

    Cons

    At times, limited decision authority within business segments slows down decision making turn times. However, that issue has improved recently.

    - Company is on an upward trajectory with lots of room for growth
    - National and global scale with four segments, giving great opportunities to change up roles and functions without leaving the company

    Cons

    - Still a culture change taking place toward people first
    - Segments are fairly remotely located, making recruiting a bit more difficult

    Pros

    People First culture is truly being nurtured at Oshkosh Corporation. While changing a culture takes time, our Leadership Team models People First day in and day out. We have a ways to go in development of leaders in this culture across the organization and I have no doubt we will get there.

    Great to work for an organization that has a strong purpose to Make A Difference in People’s Lives and makes products that protect and serve the people who use them.

    Good work-life balance.

    Cons

    Opportunity to connect functions better. Can be very siloed.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the awesome work!
