    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.
