    I have been working at Whirlpool full-time (more than an 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.

    I worked at Whirlpool full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great place to work and i highly recommend it. The people are down to earth and easy to work with. There is a general agreement of respect of the employee and that is something that is rare in today's industry. I felt that as a senior engineering in electronic R&D center, my opinion was valued and management respected my thoughts and opinion.

    Cons

    It's not a really a con but it's the truth about the appliance industry, cost is the main driver for all your work as a design engineer or any other segment of the company.

    I have been working at Whirlpool full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Whirlpool corporate values are long standing... part of my training in 1991... and still alive and constant. In the customer experience center we have a great culture.. sharing challenges and successes every day. Adapting to our consumers makes this a learning environment.

    Cons

    Challenges mainly driven from external factors.... that drive urgency for continuous cost reduction.. This is good for lean thinkers.... however sometimes employees are not informed of the reasons behind initiatives that are cost driven. I have learned to take it for granted we will always be challenged in this way.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advise for management... People are always smarter than you think. Never underestimate the knowledge of people that serve the customers.

    Pros

    They give you all the necessary tools to work adn give your best
    They give you the opportunity to grow up inside the company

    Cons

    Innovation and engineering area is not too close to the production line, it takes time and energy to translate from one place to other whenever you need to get a solution to a problem from there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    there are mettings imparted monthly where the lead talks about how we are going, what are the things we make right and how to improve
