    Pros

    Great people, clear direction from leadership on goals/objectives, and quality product. Contributes a lot to the communities around the various locations.

    Cons

    Goals, while clearly defined, can be extremely lofty and difficult to achieve with out the exact market conditions. Forces us to stretch, but can be discouraging at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the communication. It is working well.

    I have been working at Whirlpool full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    You get a paycheck.

    You work with good people

    Otherwise nothing else, it's a call center so you get yelled at every day.

    Cons

    Lack of Vision - Company constantly changing tools and policy but never thinking about how it will affect customers and employees.

    Dishonesty - You're told not to lie to the customer, but you're also told not to tell the customer that there is a known issue with an appliance even though there's notices about known issues and your last 100 calls were about the same issue customer is calling in about.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Help your employees by not asking them to lie to a customer but tell them not to lie. Admit to the customer that an appliance has a design flaw and help make it right. Don't let the Rep get yelled at over something we should be helping a customer with if we're being honest.

    Pros

    The benefits, time off, flexibility, training, and overall team environment is great. WP genuinely cares about their people. Which is tough to find these days.

    Cons

    None that you wouldn't see in any other job. Challenging at times, but never negative.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create a better flow from dept. to dept. and back up the teams at every level to succeed. With that and the benefits you provide you may attain the most hardworking workforce in any company.

    lots of freedom to move jobs and functions, new facility upgrades, small town

    lower end of pay scale, small town, senior leaders too short term focused

    Need to refocus on product vs. just financial growth and size. Losing some of the small company feel as well as entrepreneurship and innovation. Need to better balance work life balance
