    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 Management

    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.

    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 Management

    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.

    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.

  7. Continuous learning environment... still challenged and engaged after 23 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 Management

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