Pros

Very nice to support a business the supports their local area. Pay is competitive, environment is friendly, overall in their local area its a nice place to work

Cons

Management can sometimes be very partial to their friends and to advance sometimes requires a little bit of butt kissing.

    I have been working at Whirlpool full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Solid brand with exposure to multiple areas of the business.
    Opportunity to learn process development and process control.

    Cons

    Strategic direction of the company is consistently changing and functional areas do not/cannot align.
    Does not provide leadership development opportunities. Always seeking the next "top talent" without understanding the implications or training required to grow talent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Choose a path to grow the company and pursue, the continued meeting of bottom lines through cost cutting does not feed innovation or drive talent development. Leadership is touted, but in reality is weak. Take hold of every opportunity to develop junior employees and strategically bring in outside talent, do not use it as standard practice. Stop the continued focus on individual functional area results, actually hold groups accountable for the performance of the shared company goals.

    Not pleasant, unfulfilling, unexciting, frustrating to the point of abandonment.

    Pros

    Great benefits. If you are able to follow the rules and keep your head down, not rocking the boat, you will do fine.

    Cons

    Too many to list -- just too many.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
