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 Management

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

    Career opportunities are abundant up to the manager level. Many lateral opportunities. Ethical company that is family oriented. Good employee discounts and developmental opportunities. Excellent bonus system.

    Cons

    Women and minorities are under-represented at the Director and above levels of the organization and we don't see intentional actions by the company to address this. We target women as our primary customer - why wouldn't we have more women running the company? Performance reviews are a game - balance out the ratings for the distribution curve and hope you are not one of the bottom rankings this time.

    Advice to Management

    You want to be seen as progressive you have to look, act, sound, and feel like you and thus the company are progressive. Wishing one thing and acting another will not get you seen as contemporary as your competitors.

    Disappointing lack of leadership, except in cronyism

    Pros

    If you're a new graduate (especially from Purdue), and this is your first job, you'll do great, probably enjoy the company, and have plenty of opportunity.

    Cons

    If you're coming to the company with experience, you're going to be disappointed. You'll be expected to know the Whirlpool processes without training, and denigrated when you don't pick them up through osmosis.

    If you like a company where your performance is judged not just by how you perform vs your goals, but how you are compared to your peers, you'll love Whirlpool. In order for your performance to be "above average", your co-workers performance must be "below average". This doesn't exactly contribute to an environment of teamwork.

    The quality of the company's products is so poor, that's it's an ongoing internal joke that employees can't even recommend their products.

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to manage by slogan. Try providing subordinates with what they need to do their jobs and make the company successful, instead of just expecting them to perform.
