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

Pros

Solid brand with exposure to multiple areas of the business.
Opportunity to learn process development and process control.

Cons

Strategic direction of the company is consistently changing and functional areas do not/cannot align.
Does not provide leadership development opportunities. Always seeking the next "top talent" without understanding the implications or training required to grow talent.

Advice to Management

Choose a path to grow the company and pursue, the continued meeting of bottom lines through cost cutting does not feed innovation or drive talent development. Leadership is touted, but in reality is weak. Take hold of every opportunity to develop junior employees and strategically bring in outside talent, do not use it as standard practice. Stop the continued focus on individual functional area results, actually hold groups accountable for the performance of the shared company goals.

    Cons

    Management can sometimes be very partial to their friends and to advance sometimes requires a little bit of butt kissing.
