Disapproves of CEO

I worked at Whirlpool Corporation full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Work 3 days a week, company card to expense fast food for client lunches, mileage payments, fly under the radar with ease

Cons

Horrible sales direction, poor training, CEO is awful, VP of Sales is clueless, corporate is in a ghetto small town that is stuck in the 90's, the company lays off employees to help the bottom line instead of cutting spending.

Advice to Management

Until CEO is ousted there is no advice that will matter. Company is watching the competition surpass in innovation.

    They do give you a lot of free stuff or sell them at good discounts!

    The only way to move up in this company is if you know the right person or kiss enough ass.
