    Pros

    Working at Pierce Mfg, a division of Oshkosh corporation has been a wonderful experience for me. The people are like family and there is great teamwork and support throughout the company.

    Cons

    With a large corporation there come some trade-offs. It can be challenging to work as one team. Although there are good intentions and we all try to do so, this doesn't always work as well is we would like.

    Advice to Management

    There is a large pool of talent at Oshkosh corporation. Employees have opportunities to move within the corporation which gives managers more to select from also.

    Pros

    The "People First" culture here is real; great benefits; fexible schedule; flexible workplace (working from home); they are always looking to improve; the community involvement is impressive.

    Cons

    It takes a lot of time and coordination to get things done. The IT organization is very siloed which adds to the time and complexity in coordinating and completing projects.

    Advice to Management

    Consult with your employees that actually do the work. Middle management doesn't necessarily have the insights into efficiencies that can be gained.

    Pros

    Reputable global company with strong ethics, focus on safety, cutting edge technology and engineering advancements, great benefits including work/home life balance, educational opportunities, Employee First culture. I have been with the company for around 10 years and have seen the company grow, change, and be resilient during challenging times. Management listens and suggestions for improvement are always welcome. Great employee moral. I love working here! There's even a foosball table at some sites, but I prefer the free coffee.

    Cons

    Can get lost in the amount of paperwork required, and time wasted documenting rather than doing. Can be a lot of extra hours and stressful, at times, to keep up with demand.

    Advice to Management

    Thanks for listening to us and sharing your life stories with us.
