Disapproves of CEO

Pros

Compensation higher than average Global presence with opportunities for international travel Opportunities for advancement if willing to make sacrifices Appliance discounts

Cons

Family work balance impossible Unrealistic objectives Silo mentality, not a lot of collaboration outside work groups Leadership instability due to short tenures in positions

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.

    No opinion of CEO

    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.

    Pros

    Diverse workforce - many highly educated individuals with interesting perspective

    Cons

    Little consistent upper management executable strategy - flavor of the month mentality

    Advice to Management

    Let the people you hire do their jobs - they are the experts in their field - no wonder the Asians are taking over the appliance world
