    Pros

    Great people, clear direction from leadership on goals/objectives, and quality product. Contributes a lot to the communities around the various locations.

    Goals, while clearly defined, can be extremely lofty and difficult to achieve with out the exact market conditions. Forces us to stretch, but can be discouraging at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the communication. It is working well.

    Pros

    The benefits, time off, flexibility, training, and overall team environment is great. WP genuinely cares about their people. Which is tough to find these days.

    Cons

    None that you wouldn't see in any other job. Challenging at times, but never negative.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create a better flow from dept. to dept. and back up the teams at every level to succeed. With that and the benefits you provide you may attain the most hardworking workforce in any company.

    I have been working at Whirlpool full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Small company feel, tons of resources, networking between plants, trainings & workshops, a lot of responsibility immediately. Unique ideas are encouraged, thoughts are shared, and teamwork drives this company. The company walks the walk with its values and morals. Opportunity for advancement from within and moving around the plants.

    Cons

    Plant locations (small manufacturing towns) - however all within drive-able distances to a city. ROI of 1 year makes project justification a little more difficult.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I am impressed with the management. We are pushing a new culture across all plants which takes some balls and persistence. Everyone is aligned and on-board. They value young professional ideas and opinions. I have only seen a VERY small amount of politics played.
