Lack of diversity (of thought, of appearance)
Conservative -- afraid to take real chances
Silo-effect hinders effective collaboration (across product categories, across regions)
Top-heavy -- too many layers of management

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take more chances in the type of people you hire and in the projects you fund and commercialize

    Former Employee - Contract Account Manager  in  Los Angeles, CA
    Former Employee - Contract Account Manager in Los Angeles, CA

    I worked at Whirlpool full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Work 3 days a week, company card to expense fast food for client lunches, mileage payments, fly under the radar with ease

    Cons

    Horrible sales direction, poor training, CEO is awful, VP of Sales is clueless, corporate is in a ghetto small town that is stuck in the 90's, the company lays off employees to help the bottom line instead of cutting spending.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Until CEO is ousted there is no advice that will matter. Company is watching the competition surpass in innovation.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
