Current Employee - Industrial Engineer in Oshkosh, WI (US)

I have been working at Oshkosh Corporation full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

It has a demanding customer, and is a fast paced manufacturer. There are plenty of opportunities for improvements, and the chance to work on many big projects. Products are very cool, and serving the customer is rewarding.

Cons

The expectation of working more hours. Never ending work load and a lack of training. Old-boy network controls promotions, and there is an overall resistance to change.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Share the wealth, low raises are an insult. Actually show that you value your workforce by listening to them. Maybe consider embracing 20th century (or even 21st!) management methods.
