Pros

They compensate well and all my co-workers were amicable. It was nice to be a part of something that is "made in the USA".

Cons

Factory environment can be a downer. Some of the good hourly workers do not get the recognition they deserve. There is definitely politics involved among management. A handful of salaried employees believed their worth was much more than it realistically was. Have to relocate to numerous locations if you want to be a candidate for promotion.

Advice to Management

Looking for improvements? Spend more time with the line workers. They have ideas. The six sigma events are useful in getting non-engineer salaried employees knowledgeable of the product.

    Pros

    401k and great schools for kids Nice people Good work life balance

    Cons

    Reviewed system is flawed forced distribution, forces a lowly ranked person based not on results but politics. Promotion is not based on skills but on politics, much more then any other company I have seen. Whirlpool is the "GM" of appliances too big too many silos that don't communicate to each other

    Advice to Management

    Reduce the ranks of management by 50 percent
