    I have been working at Oshkosh Corporation full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Freedom to take the lead and trust from leadership to make things happen
    - Everyone has a "fighter" spirit due to the nature of our business. We have each other's backs and will make it through any situation
    - Pride that team members have towards our products
    - Flexible work environment - I am able to work from home when needed and can flex my hours
    - Tons of opportunities to develop professionally and personally - new job roles, exposure to leadership teams, opportunities to be a part of large enterprise-wide projects, etc.
    - Huge focus on "doing the right thing" and following the core values set by the company

    Cons

    - Working for a company that has 4 different business segments and multiple business units within each segment can be challenging. Most times processes are inconsistent, which makes many enterprise-wide initiatives quite difficult. If you have a passion for process and enjoy challenges, this will not bother you.
    - A lot of the technology is old and out-of-date.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to live by example through the "People First" philosophy. Showing your team members at all levels of the organization that they matter makes a huge difference in their lives. Continue to invest resources toward the modernization of processes, technology, and education/development. As the new generation of workers enters the workforce, it is important that we are able to attract their talent with the things that matter to them.
