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

    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.

    Pros

    Excellent job experience. I was pushed far out of my comfort zone. This job is not for the faint of heart.

    Cons

    Long hours in an intense work environment. The union is very difficult to work with. High pressure to perform.

    Advice to Management

    Work life balance is key to retaining employees. The salaries people I worked with did not truly get paid for their time.
