I worked at Whirlpool

Pros

Work Life Balance is excellent
People are great
Top Company/Brands in Industry

Cons

Constant leadership changes made it difficult to fully follow through with strategies. Direction kept changing.
Middle of nowhere in Michigan. Chicago isn't that close, 2 hours to get to a major airport.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Give better direction and support with decision making.

    Pros

    Employees have decent benefits, and some of the ongoing projects are making it easier for us to serve our trade partners effectively. Communication is improving, and immediate leadership (team Leads and Operations Advisors) are effective and competent in their positions.

    Cons

    There are gross discrepancies between how employees and contractors are treated, even though contractors are expected to meet the same standards of productivity and quality as employees. Hiring freezes and arbitrary policies are pushing out contractors who are handlers of key accounts, which is having a detrimental effect on overall employee morale as well as turnover rates.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please stop the double standards; hire the contractors who do some of the key work with the company. Remember that a focus on quantitative data needs to be balanced with qualitative data.
