    I have been working at Electrolux full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The pay is decent. One of the highest paying jobs in my current location.

    Cons

    The dept I work in is a typical call center environment. There is no confidentiality at work. There is no professionalism between management and the employees. It can be very unorganized

    Advice to Management

    DO BETTER

    Pros

    Company is turning. Improvements being seen all over: training, opportunities, engagement and purpose.

    Cons

    Work still needed in some areas in transparency and addressing some bad behaviors in manager and non manager roles.

    Advice to Management

    Continue on the path. I see even more improvements coming.

    I have been working at Electrolux full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great opportunity to work with a variety of internal roles, agency partners and technology.
    Good work/life balance and benefits.

    Cons

    Needs to be clearly defined roles over ownership in certain spaces to eliminate grey area and unnecessary noise from unqualified people.

    Some people are hired or are moved into roles that they are grossly under-qualified for thinking that they 'can do the job'.

    Advice to Management

    Electrolux has a bad habit of keeping people around that are not qualified or are toxic and do not contribute to a good work environment or the "team". Often these people are manipulative and eventually force other well qualified people to leave.

    Electrolux isn't doing enough to break down the 'silos' and connect obviously related teams.

    Leaders could stop sweeping negatives under the rug and put them in the open so they are not repeated. Whether it is people or process that isn't working out, it needs to be exposed for the better.


  4. "Good ole boy environment (racist). Plus does not hire internally well."

    Pros

    A job is better than no job. Don't get me wrong. What works for doesn't work for others. If you are a brown noser who has no ambition for career advancement, this is the spot for you especially if white.

    Cons

    Poor leadership. You would think as an industry leader they would be better organized or a standard model to follow.

    Advice to Management

    Hire internal candidates who would be loyal because of the opportunity

    Pros

    Pretty good job. Easy schedule to work with. Awesome benefits (3 weeks of PTO).

    I can tell that favoritism is what gets you up the later
