Maybe it's too "nice"

Brand Manager (Current Employee)
Benton Harbor, MI

ProsVery "easy" place to work. People here love their jobs and it has a real small town feel about it.

ConsIronically, the strengths are also weaknesses. People are very comfortable and many folks have been here a long time. There is much talk of change, but the people here were a part of creating the current culture and processes, so real change is slow at best. Missing is a sense of urgency.

Advice to Senior ManagementTake a hard look at what it means to truly transform a company into a branded consumer driven operation. Take a lesson from auto makers...being the biggest is no guarantee of long term success in and of itself.

    I have been working at Whirlpool


    Pros: It is one of the better paying jobs in the area. We have a 401k match program that is nice not great but nice. Whirlpool… Cons: They cut the education reimbursement program. Health benefits have been cut in the last ten years to minimum or almost minimum coverage. Management has not… Advice to Senior Management: Maybe we should do a lean event in the Senior Management area to see if we can cut cost here. It seems very lopsided when… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
