    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.

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

    Pros

    Oshkosh's products alone, drive the motivation and passion in my work. But I think it is the evolving culture, that is taking that same work to the next level with both myself and team members. It is hard to go one day at work without hearing someone referencing "people first." It has become part of the everyday language at Oshkosh and I see it used frequently in decisions anywhere from leadership, to decisions made within my own team. I think leadership has done a great job at adopting people first and displaying it for the rest of the organization.

    Cons

    Oshkosh is a very big company and sometimes it can be difficult to make a change within a company of this size.

    Advice to Management

    Continue evolving our people first culture and find new creative ways to roll this out to employees.

    Pros

    When in your career do you get to be part of purposefully and intentionally building a culture? Not just any culture, but a culture centered around people. At Oshkosh, the time is now and I am priveledged to be part of the journey.

    Cons

    Systems are antiquated and need to be addressed quickly. It’s time to invest so we may stay relevant and match the competition. Technology is not something you can continue to push aside.

    Advice to Management

    Lighten up on some of the bureaucracy and controls. We are a large entity but decisions need to made much lower in the organization.

    Pros

    Oshkosh Corp is a great place to work where employees really do come first! The opportunities provided by the Company seem endless, and support from executive leadership, management, and fellow employees is well above anywhere I have worked before. We are a global team working together, regardless of department, focused on building the toughest vehicles on Earth.

    Cons

    A robust onboarding program would be nice to have for employees new to the organization; there is a lot to learn about the Company, the work, and expectations.

    Pros

    The company/leadership has really taken it upon themselves to make sure "People First" is not just a phrase we throw around, but truly how we live every day!

    Cons

    Remember with us being so large, communication is very important as to things going on in all our business units. This is an area I think we could get better in.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to put our team members first! They will feel it and will always out perform expectations.

    Pros

    There is a reason Oshkosh Corporation was voted (now 3 consecutive years!) one of the top 100 most ethical companies: they live their People First culture. It is very refreshing in this world of "me first" culture. In my particular segment, the average tenure is 17 years; employees are happy, feel respected, and are fulfilled.

    Cons

    Can't think of a single thing.
