An exceptional company with exciting products, friendly people and a great culture!Sep 18, 2020 - Digital TechnologyRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
An inclusive, people orientated culture with a real sense of family. Having relocated here from the east coast, my first year with Oshkosh (Global) has been an exciting mixture of technical challenges, new friends and experiences, and a friendly atmosphere. My management has given me the flexibility to propose and execute new and innovative ideas to help the company, which is particularly important to me. I like the People First approach, something that was lacking in some of my previous industry's experiences. And I've gotten to visit multiple factories and experience the company's very cool line of truck products first hand. :) I also appreciate the well balanced approach taken with regards to COVID, with a well thought out plan to effectively balance CDC recommendations with work requirements. I particularly like the socially distanced, alternating weeks of work from home/work in the office approach, as I need to interact with others on a personal basis from time to time to still feel part of the team. And while nobody likes wearing masks, everybody pitches in and does the right thing. Overall, coming to Oshkosh was a great career move for me!
The cold, windy weather in winter requires acclimation, as the building is on the shores of a lake making for a rather frozen walk in from the parking lot at times. The wide open floor plan also takes some getting used to, as I am used to a little more privacy when I work. Lastly, the lake fly season this past spring really took me by surprise, requiring a mask being worn to walk out to my car in the morning - which had nothing to do with COVID. Fortunately they don't bite and go away after a week or two.Continue reading

Great work-life balance, competitive pay, good growth opportunitiesMay 8, 2023 - Project Manager in Oshkosh, WIRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
In my experience on the engineering side, there is significant work-life balance improvements in the past several years. I believe Oshkosh Corp learned from past mistakes on employee burnout and many of my colleagues agree that things have much improved. Pay is competitive - people need to be reminded that cost of living in Oshkosh area is significantly lower than a big city The new Global Headquarters building is impressive
Still hard to get promoted within several years (if even then). Lack of stretch assignments given. Still a lot of silos and compartmentalization of skillsets. Also there is a lot of politics in the middle management level - more than I have previously experienced at similarly sized companies.Continue reading
