Does Oshkosh Corporation offer a retirement plan?

Pros

Flex time, decent benefits and 401k match, very generous PTO that goes up with years of service

Cons

Poor engineering facilities (they literally have people working in trailers since there isn't enough room). Some management hasn't bought into the "People First" culture. Expectation of working unpaid overtime for salary exempt workers.

Advice to Management

Have got to upgrade the office facilities if you want to remain competitive, some of the current product development buildings are a joke. Engineers are expected by management to work unpaid overtime. Either manage project milestones and staffing better or pay their hourly rate beyond 40 hours worked. Would also help with encouraging designers that have management skills to consider further education and getting a 4-year degree (currently make more with a 2-year degree plus overtime).

Does Oshkosh Corporation offer parental leave?

Pros

First employer that I feel truly embraces a culture focused on its employees' development and welfare ("People First"). -Strong Military connection in product and people, engaged employee Military Network, growing military focused recruiting, and continuous support of veterans in our communities (supporting the Honor Flights, Army 10 Milers, Wounded Warrior campaigns etc) -Inspirational leadership: Wilson Jones is approachable, humble, and an "in-the-trenches" type of leader. You will experience many opportunities to see and speak with the CEO and other higher level leadership. -Employee action groups centered around development and inclusion: Women's Network, Military Network, Abilities Network, Young Professionals Network - Community focused: 8hrs of paid Volunteer time, and so many company sponsored opportunities to help around the community. I, personally, was given an opportunity to put plan a fundraising event for our local back-to-school fair. This event, alone, raised $2,500 to help local students-in-need. This is an example of the many, employee-led initiatives the company supports on behalf of bettering our communities. There is also an Oshkosh Cares program, where our donations are used to support employees when disaster strikes (ex Hurricane relief) -Feed Forward teams: an opportunity to join other employees on initiatives to make an impact either internally or externally -Opinions Matter: Annual engagement survey's, frequent "You said, we did" communications about how our suggestions have gone into place -Flex time opportunity to assist with work/life balance -Strives for innovation: There is an annual innovation competition in Engineering called the "Musky Pond" and annual company wide "Oshkosh Excellence Awards" for many categories including innovation, community support, etc. -Great Benefits: Health insurance plans based on single, adult and child/children, and family. Benefits such as long/short term disabilities, accidental death paid by company, competitive maternity leave program (and possibly paternity plan in the works), comparable health, 401k, dental, vision, dependent care flex savings, HSA, etc benefits. -Products with impact: from Fire Trucks, Military Vehicles, Public Service Vehicles, to Construction vehicles...our products are built to protect! We are constantly innovating new ways to overcome threats and obstacles in all the areas our vehicles serve. Note: there is a difference in Shop/Office benefits and experiences. This review is based on Full-time, Salary/Office employee.

Cons

-Certain areas have limited career growth or paths are unclear. There are initiatives to create/communicate job "pipelines" in the works. Engineering offers job shadowing opportunities. -Health plans could be more affordable -Communication is improving between all segments and departments

Advice to Management

I know there is a bit of a gap in culture between our Shop and Office environments. Without losing site of what we are accomplishing in the office, need to figure out how to keep People First in the Shop despite the differences in environments. Some communication about the new HQ seems to be countering all we have accomplished with One Oshkosh/People First (personal effects for HQ workstations, non-HQ employee access, non-HQ employee restrictions on gym etc). Revisit all new HQ polices/communications for One Oshkosh/People First consistencies.

Benefits such as long/short term disabilities, accidental death paid by company, competitive maternity leave program (and possibly paternity plan in the works), comparable health, 401k, dental, vision, dependent care flex savings, HSA, etc benefits.
