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

    Pros

    - Enthusiasm and excitement over products and the people who help build them
    - Opportunity to deliver meaningful results
    - Room for growth
    - Fair compensation - pay for performance
    - Competitive benefits
    - Historical - 100 year anniversary this year
    - Focus on Continuous Improvement
    - Process minded

    Cons

    - Heavy focus on the newer, younger generation - folks who have been here for a while can also provide great insight and knowledge to why something was done a certain way, or how we handled certain issues in the past. Keeping a competitive and younger workforce is important to ensure succession planning and sustainability, but also be sure to leverage the knowledge you have here already.

    Advice to Management

    - Continue to reflect on truly being people first - hold yourselves accountable first, and ensure you're expecting the same from your next levels down - and cascade that expectation.
