Pros

They pay you enough to consider ignoring your morel compass when it comes losing your sense of team work and exploiting your individuality

Cons

Everyone is out to make themselves look better, even at the expense of others. This is a result of the promoted culture through the Personal Metrics of Performance.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Not everyone thinks, acts and feels the same way. If you really want to preach diversity and inclusion, you should understand this is not strictly race and sexual preference.

    Pros

    Great company rich with top talent. Whirlpool has every opportunity to excel and grow and even dominate the industry. It is flush with top talent and those willing to put forth the right efforts to drive the company towards their every goal. You'll find the greatest talent still within the company, while it continues to farm out through attrition the rest of their talent to their competitors and ancillary industries.

    Cons

    Bureaucracy is weighing down all the potential. The company feels rotten within itself with cronyism and nepotism awarding positions to people unproven and people who have never stayed within position long enough to actually have delivered against an objective, and yet they thrive with their naive opinions. Too slow to act

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wake up to the talent loss, clarify the steps and assessment for individual growth. In this industry, you'll need people willing to take risk and management not so eager to hand out punishment.

    I have been working at Whirlpool full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Very laid back and friendly. Lots of changes to be more lean and to eliminate the old-school mentality with respect to work hours, work attire, years vs. company instead of performance-based promotions, etc. Very short commute unless you decide to make it longer. In general, the work-life balance is above average compared to other large companies. Very diverse workforce and lots of international opportunities, if you are interested in that. Many career path opportunities.

    Cons

    Can be VERY slow to promote its people, especially in the tech center for fabric care (laundry) engineers. Smaller town == no other major employers in the area. Bonus is not guaranteed to be a specific amount; it fluctuates based on company performance == on bad years, salaries are not competitive. Housing prices are higher than normal in the area due to tourism.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want top talent to remain, then get rid of the forced ranking system. If you only hire top talent, none of those people want to hear that they are just "ok" or "average". If they are above average, they should be told so, not forced into a bucket so your numbers work out.
