I have been working at Whirlpool full-time

Pros

Stable company, pay and benefits were great for the area. Great community presence in volunteer work. New Plant.

Cons

Quality of life and work life balance were not fair depending in which department you worked in. Receiving help was not timely or non existent.
Upper management had favorites...

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Look at all departments and review the balance between management staffing compared to the total areas of responsibility.

New people are brought in to help transform but hit road blocks from current employees that are only protecting their interest instead of looking out for the productivity and success of the company as a whole.

    I worked at Whirlpool full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Low cost of living in Benton Harbor. Great brands that include Whirlpool, Kitchen Aid, Maytag, Magic Chef, and Kenmore. Easy job with limited negative performance reviews.

    Cons

    Tough industry....very competitive...GE and Samsung have lower prices. Decision making is very slow and needs to be streamlined.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reduce layers of management. Hire more people internally and develop a strong training program for future leaders.
