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

    Pros

    Only good thing about working here is the paycheck.

    Cons

    Treats employees as numbers, not people. Hiring process is very misleading and in some cases straight up lies. The company has little concern with following the union contract. Worst atmosphere I have ever worked in.

    Advice to Management

    Your "people first" initiative is the furthest thing from what actually is practiced. Treat your employees as people, rather than a number on a line.

    Pros

    Great pay, job opportunities, a lot to learn, fast paced, generous benefits, fantastic quality product

    Cons

    Culture is very poor, upper management seems very disconnected, 1st shift and 2nd shift are not treated equally, HR seems like they work against management than with management, training is severely lacking, disorganized to the point that it can sometimes be embarrassing. Office employees seem to come off as a clueless to what goes on within the manufacturing facilities. Too many inconsistencies.

    Advice to Management

    There is such great potential with this company, weed out the bad eggs and cut the red tape and allow those who want to grow have more of a voice.
