Good place to work - little mobility
Parts Sales and Service Representative (Former Employee) – Dallas Texas – July 16, 2018
Oshkosh Corporation is a great place to work. Salaries are good and they have a robust benefits package. However, if you look towards upward mobility you might want to look elsewhere. The management teams from 20+ years ago are solidly rooted in the company and have formed alliances and bonds that are not easily broken. If you are not in the 'old-school' club you are not welcome and are seen as a threat to the older schools of thought. In all my years there I never got an offer to get a new job in a new city, an offer to get promoted to a new position within another segment, or anything of the sort. I did get a promotion, which came with zero training, zero support from the managers and very little guidance on what the hell I was supposed to do.
Few opportunities appear at Oshkosh for people who want to grow within the company and this is a place where you want to go work if you want to spend 30 years in the same position doing the exact same thing with very little chance of mobility. The salaries are good, though. So you want to spend 20 years of your life earning 80k per year droning away mindlessly in a cubicle - Oshkosh Corporation is for you.
Good salaries, good benefits, the people at Oshkosh are good too
Sub-par facilities, zero continuous training, pointless conference calls, no upward mobility, poor leadership.
