Excellent foundation of values, but not followed by every department.

Pros

Whirlpool has an excellent set of values. Salaries and benefits are overall competitive. Whirlpool as a whole is a solid company with longevity in the market place.

Cons

Whirlpool's values are not followed by every department, causing a negative impact to morale and productivity. Some departments/positions are given less value than others and are provided poor and/or inefficient tools to perform duties. This causes a severe "slow down" in completing tasks within required time parameters.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I suggest that upper management take a closer look at how the "lower" levels of positions are being valued and the tools that they are provided to the employees. There is a lot of waste caused by not providing the right tools to employees to perform their duties. Many excellent employees are being overwhelmed because the tools they have do not support the job requirements they are accountable for. Ultimately, our customers suffer because of lengthy delays to resolved issues.

    Pros

    Plenty of different job types and product groups to move around in.

    Cons

    Engineering buildings are old, cubes getting smaller, cube walls getting shorter, so its difficult to concentrate on your work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop thinking that you know more than we do about what we need to do our jobs, or where our problems are in getting projects done. Stop making the work environment more distracting! Also, please stop preaching StraightTalk when you really don't want to hear it from the team member level. Other than that you're doing great.

    Pros

    Whirlpool is committed to the best customer experience, innovation and loyalty. It strives to meet consumer needs in all market places and puts the customer at the center of everything.

    Cons

    The US business is so large it sometimes feels segmented. As an employee it takes some personal initiative to remain informed on all areas of the business.
