Pros

I perceived the Whirlpool management as the best of thirty companies in my career.
Very well defined company standards. Well managed part naming conventions.
Well defined engineering roles: engineers; designers; drafters

Cons

migrating software packages (Going Google; WMCS -> SAP) = short-term pain
modelers should model and manage upper level assemblies, not spin wheels learning EN writing processes and company specs.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Do not promote a long-term opportunity 6-18 months and then not renew the extendable contract for (3 of 3) contractors after four months. Economy shifts, horizons only allow to forecast work load just so far...

    Mandatory employee turnover from upper management is puzzling.

    Pros

    Free stand mixers and immersion blenders.

    Cons

    Firings are many and often. If you do not have a family you are fair game for sacrifice to save the lives of others' children. Pay is much lower than anything auto or aero in the area. Product integrity is extremely low.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Chill out and stop thinking you are the greatest company in the world.
