    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 3 years)

    Pros

    I have never worked with a CEO who was so genuine and caring. Once he meets you, he will not forget your name.

    Cons

    Diversity still needs. CEO needs to surround himself with other caring leaders. Not all in the C-suite are as selfless.

    Advice to Management

    Be proactive in finding opportunities to diversify your C-suite.

    There is a real sense of purpose that we do is important. The People First Culture is centered around the wellbeing of team members. By taking care of team members, they will in turn take care of the customer, business, and each other.

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

    Pros

    The People First culture and our new levels of community engagement are inspiring
    For the first time in my 29 years with Oshkosh, I actually encourage folks (including my own offspring) to apply for positions with Oshkosh

    Cons

    Some of our locations are in Wisconsin and Minnesota - these are great outdoor places but do have five months of colder weather, so be ready to celebrate the snow (and wind and cold)

    Advice to Management

    Continue the focus on People First

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

    Pros

    Oshkosh Corp has some great training to help engineers and designers get their jobs done, they also provide educations reimbursement. Oshkosh also encourages innovation, and provides flex time.

    Cons

    We use multiple cad and PDM software, though hopefully we will be getting rid of one of the PDMs we us; along with that we have a number of different standards for designing rather than just one or two. This is all manageable but just annoying.

    Advice to Management

    Keep moving in the way you are, it is a slow process to change our culture and we can all see it moving! Thanks for keeping us informed!

    Pros

    Job flexibility, remote working ability, team collaboration and support. Can easily ask questions and learn new things! Many professional development and community volunteer opportunities.

    Processes are more complex than they need to be. The company can be slow to change as numerous people need to be included and get expansive buy-in.
