    Pros

    Big, meaningful work objectives & high quality, committed colleagues. Great values-driven,high-performance work environment. Excellent place to grow leadership skills.

    Cons

    Large, global, matrixed organization can take time to learn how to navigate. Continually improving facilities, technology, and policies and practices to enhance employee experience.

    Advice to Management

    Keep setting ambitious goals. Continue to make intentional investments to equip employees to achieve high expectations and produce differentiated results.

    I've found Whirlpool Corporation to be a great place to work as well. I've had many opportunities and challenges throughout my career.

    Pros

    The motto, "There's no right way to do a wrong thing" is not just a flag to wave but a core belief at Whirlpool. Does Whirlpool make mistakes? Certainly. Do they tolerate unethical, disrespectful, or discriminatory behavior? Certainly not.

    I also love the small town community in BH, MI.

    Cons

    Whirlpool has traditionally been averse to risk, which is a double-edged blade. On one side, it has led Whirlpool to 100+ years of success; on the other side, that aversion to risk can lead to a different risk, the risk of not taking action quickly enough.

    Advice to Management

    Leadership at Whirlpool is moving in the right direction. I believe the culture of the company is going in the right direction, and the strategic priorities are based on sound principles.

    Pros

    Really loved working there as a summer intern. The experience of other employees is exceptional, and everyone is very nice. I worked in the VA capacity section of fabric care.

    Cons

    The higher-ups don't know a thing about what engineering is, and demand some pretty outrageous feats from us. It's ridiculous. Make a quality product before you try to sell it.

    Advice to Management

    Let the engineers determine the future of the company. All of the cheap, quick paybacks will not amount to the impressive profits after you put enough quality time into R&D.

    Pros

    The structure and procedures are well planned and implemented, the company values are lived by the employees, most employees are ready to help you at any matter and career perspectives are well stablished.

    Cons

    Although being a global company, the interaction between the plants need some improvements such as facilitate the exchange of experience, technology and overall knowledge to help build better, faster and cost effective products.

    Advice to Management

    There are always opportunities for improvement, I would encourage the employees to express themselves giving general ideas on how to improve the company overall. Maybe creating a portal where they could enter the ideias and suggestions.
