    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

    Decent pay if your there long enough.

    Cons

    Foremen will not back you up. Other supervisors will walk you out for made up reasons. Insurance now sucks, pay almost all of a Dr visit.

    Advice to Management

    How about supporting your workers instead of crapping on them and wrecking there lives!.

    Pros

    Starke Marke, viele regierungsaufträge, kaum Fluktuation.

    Cons

    Das Management ist selbstverliebt und betrachtet den laden als Sebstbedienung. Viel zu viele Vostände, die viel kassieren, aber nichts tun. - technik sehr hausbacken.

    I have been working at Oshkosh Corporation as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    The staff are very nice people to work with but everyone seems to work in fear.

    Cons

    Project Management and Organization is lacking at every level. There is no clear scheduling, quality control and no clearly defined leadership roles with accountability and direction. As a result their projects run long, extremely costly and appear to be more complicated then they should. Their turnover rate is through the roof and they use several consulting firms which are constantly at odds. The management roles they do have in place present several conflicts of interest which is the root cause of stagnation.

    Advice to Management

    Put the right people in charge at the right levels. Promote collaboration and adopt one of the several Agile methodologies to help keep and project project Velocity.

    Pros

    Used to have good pay and benefits. No longer worth the trouble. You will be much happier working somewhere else for less money.

    Cons

    Company doesn't self invest. Appears like their ready for a quick exit strategy. Layers upon layers of management with no accountability or decision making. Broken tools, bad parts, ridiculuos tack times, and endless cleaning duties. You're never gonna win. .

    Advice to Management

    Executives need to start paying attention to what's going on down on the floor and get to the root of the problems. Get him outta here.

    I worked at Oshkosh Corporation full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay. Decent benefits (after 30 day waiting period). Some opportunity to advance or move to a different segement.

    Cons

    As a former member of the HR department, I can tell you first hand that the company does not care about its employees. They want to hire as many people to get as much work done as efficiently as possible. You'll get hired, make a lot of money for a while and get let go the moment they don't need you. There is no such thing as work life balance with this company. If you don't want a life outside of work, you'll be fine. You'll make a lot of money but will never have the time to spend it. Management does not work on development of employees or consider employee engagement an issue. Workforce is not happy. Work environment is not enjoyable. Management picks favorites and throws money at them... if you're not on the favorite list, good luck!

    Advice to Management

    Reconsider your whole approach... your employees are not happy!

    Pros

    The money....but the bullcrap you have to put up with hardly makes it worth it.

    Cons

    There isn't enough room here to list all the ways they violate employees rights. A herd of cattle at a slaughter house are treated with more respect.

    Advice to Management

    Get out while you can.
