    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

    For an internship, they are very flexible with students and will try to accommodate them as much as possible.

    Cons

    There can be periods of time where there isn't much work that an intern can do. There is also the matter of little training going on as well.

    Advice to Management

    You have a pretty nice internship program, but you hire very few from it because you seem to only want senior level experience. You have plenty of valuable skills coming out of nearby colleges.
