    I have been working at Oshkosh Corporation full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I'm not sure how many people outside of the Oshkosh family comprehend the scope and reach of this organization. We have offices and factories in dozens of countries, each focused on building a variety of difference-making equipment for customers all over the world. How many other jobs can you say your work helps save lives or push the boundaries of productivity and innovation? And because of the global nature of Oshkosh Corporation, team members have a very real opportunity to travel and even transplant to places most could only dream of.

    Cons

    Oshkosh Corporation is a very large Fortune 350 company and with that comes the expected stress, politics and upheaval. It can leave you feeling a little adrift at times, but many would consider this con to be an exciting challenge and the rewards to be worth it.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing! A vast majority of team members feel that this company is experience a renaissance at the moment, primarily because of CEO Wilson Jones and the People First culture he is trying to bring to this great company. It's never going to be easy, but you're definitely on the right path.

    Pros

    Great pay and time off structure which includes flex time. The culture has changed for the better over the last 2 years under Wilson Jones. Overall a great place to work with plenty of opportunity to move around in the organization.

    Cons

    This is a very operations focused company and strategic initiatives tend to get put aside in place of expediting parts. If you can accept the constant “firefighting”, you’ll be fine.

    Advice to Management

    Some of the operational moves have been questionable and better planning could have been done. Other than that, keep up the great work!
