    Pros

    Good pay. Decent benefits (after 30 day waiting period). Some opportunity to advance or move to a different segement.

    Cons

    As a former member of the HR department, I can tell you first hand that the company does not care about its employees. They want to hire as many people to get as much work done as efficiently as possible. You'll get hired, make a lot of money for a while and get let go the moment they don't need you. There is no such thing as work life balance with this company. If you don't want a life outside of work, you'll be fine. You'll make a lot of money but will never have the time to spend it. Management does not work on development of employees or consider employee engagement an issue. Workforce is not happy. Work environment is not enjoyable. Management picks favorites and throws money at them... if you're not on the favorite list, good luck!

    Advice to Management

    Reconsider your whole approach... your employees are not happy!

  6. Good environment, challenging work, needs more cohesion

    Pros

    In the IT side of Corporate, the environment is mostly positive. Most of the managers (from upper mid, to the front lines) try to involve employees in the decision making. A definite 'invest in getting it done' attitude. Pay isn't bad, and the benefits package is pretty good, and the offices can be crowded but extremely functional.

    Cons

    They need to ensure that 'getting it done' includes 'the right way' as some managers (especially in the segments) 'cheap out' and then complain it doesn't work. Senior management can a bit directionless with how hard to press forward with projects. The hours can get crazy because nobody wants any downtime, but that's not unusual for IT.

    Advice to Management

    We might be ONE Oshkosh a little quicker if they'd pay a little more AND crack a few segment heads that don't want change.

    Pros

    The money....but the bullcrap you have to put up with hardly makes it worth it.

    Cons

    There isn't enough room here to list all the ways they violate employees rights. A herd of cattle at a slaughter house are treated with more respect.

    Advice to Management

    Get out while you can.

    Pros

    This was a Manufacturing company that employed a dedicated workforce. The employees do what it takes to get projects done. They have pride in their finished products.

    Cons

    Management style and executive team is ineffective. Often heard it referred to as the"old boys network." Expectation for salaried employees is to work a lot of hours without compensation or recognition. No employee development programs or career development paths. Company is disjointed among divisions. No real company loyalty.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to implement diversity, employee development and recognition and a communicative culture.

    Pros

    Excellent pay.. wide variety of job opportunies and excellent benefits

    Cons

    Too much push push let's rush to hit the numbers and not enough management caring about the quality of the product

    Advice to Management

    Pull your head out of your tail and learn to actually listen to what employees have to say and their ideas instead of treating them like crap and shutting them out.
