    I have been working at Whirlpool

    Pros

    - Opportunities for promotion
    - Leadership visibility for top performers
    - Competitive pay for local area

    Cons

    - 'Consensus culture'... very slow to make critical decisions
    - Strong focus on outsourcing of knowledge positions creates knowledge gaps
    - Rural area
    - Failure of leadership to remove poor performers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - "Cut the fat" by removing poor performers... not outsourcing whole departments
    - Embrace experimentation and change
    - Make decisions quickly... own the decision... consensus is not always required.

    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.

    Doesn't Recommend
