    Pros

    Salary is very good and co-workers are very good and dedicated indivduals.

    Cons

    Upper Management is awful. Forced bell curve forces continous cycling of manpower. Complete closed minded approach to actively listening to their employees. If you propose any idea that is perceived as misaligned it is given no consideration and then you become blacklisted. HR is a puppet of management and is far from being "Human Relations". Management is making no commitment to the area. Facilities are old and rundown.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees and breed an environment of openness rather then abuse those that present new ideas. Dump, Dump, Dump forced bell curve.

    Pros

    People, community, and area is great. Good family values and great schools.

    Cons

    Tough financial times have changed the work environment for the worse. More hours and less bonus.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good luck. Whirlpool is certainly in a dynamic time. Must react with great leadership.
