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

Pros

Company has great integrity and the leading appliance manufacturer in the world. Is excellent at lean manufacturing. Provides salary employees lots of opportunity for career advancement. Invest heavily in training personnel to improve job skills.

Cons

IT technology lags due to lack of funding. Has sent too many manufacturing jobs out of the country. Has outsourced or removed too many value-added jobs.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Invest more in technology and systems that can benefit manufacturing. There was a trend in the early 2000's where this was done and it was a great benefit to the manufacturing plants, but that was eventually eliminated.

    Pros

    Diverse experiences and responsibilities. Nice area with a good school system for people with children.

    Cons

    Too much focus on recruiting from outside. Talent appraisal process is a little flawed and does not encourage team work. It is unclear how "talent" is defined and in order to "move-up" you have to play the politics well. people are moved around very frequently so people are more focused on their next role and not their current role. HR fills roles internally on the basis of "available to move" and not skills.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hold people accountable. Shared accountability ensures that no one is actually held accountable.
