Advice to Management

Focus on your best assets, your people, even in poor econonic times when it's easier to do the opposite. If your company strategy is to be in every home, everywhere, then it should be in support of every family living in every home, which is not represented in your corporate culture.

    Pros

    Whirlpool is a great company to work for. Benefits and working environments are great with endless opportunites for growth. Professionalism is a must and having a degree is crucial.

    Cons

    must have a degree to grow and have upward mobility. They encourage and provide developmental career resources to those who want them

    Advice to Management

    me more hands on and in the loop with what your employees do and how they perform instead of looking at just the big picture

    Pros

    Whirlpool pays well and has a very nice bonus plan. The opportunities for advancement are there and like most companies if you are willing to go the extra mile you can be rewarded.

    Cons

    Part of going the extra mile is knowing what answer to give, much of the management do not want to hear bad news. You can give truthful answers but they need to be very carefully worded. Bluntness is seen as not being a team player.

    Advice to Management

    Mexico is not the answer to all of North America's problems. Cheap labor will not make up for poor management and quality.
