    Pros

    There's a reason we say "Welcome to the Oshkosh Family" when team members join the company. It's truly a family. I've been here nearly three years and couldn't imagine working anywhere else. We have great workplace flexibility! I was able to make all baby appointments with my wife during her pregnancy. There are plenty of opportunities to volunteer in the community. I also appreciate the commitment to my professional development. We choose a broad range of courses in Your Oshkosh University to continue developing our skills.

    Cons

    I have nothing negative to say.

    Advice to Management

    Keep being transparent and pushing our people first culture.

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