    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

    Building a strong people first culture with a CEO that walks the talk.

    Pros

    - Truly a people first culture under new CEO
    - 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!

    Pros

    Relax office atmosphere and dress code..dress for your day makes dressing appropriately easy

    Cons

    Big on military contracts, expect conversations leaning towards affiliated political parties. It the line of business, so you can't really complain about it

    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Wages are competitive for the area and industry.

    Cons

    Management treats hourly employees in a demeaning way. We are hourly so we must not know how things operate. The people first culture that they are trying to implement is slowing production. Not enough vacation. Poor healthcare insurance.

    Advice to Management

    Hold people accountable. I see people all day sitting down doing nothing, playing games on their phones, wandering around, and running different gambling pools. When I ask the coordinator why they allow it, I get told it's easier to look the other way than to reprimand the employee. I work at the Harrison st plant.

    Continue to think about how initiatives can also impact production team members
