    Pros

    You will work with intelligent people who have a passion for their work and are fun to be around. You will be challenged with interesting projects and will be given a lot of responsibility. Everyone around you is driven to win. If you are early in your career and want some excellent experience and want to build your resume for the next move, this is a great place to be.

    Cons

    The talent pool evaluation process is rank driven, which drives bad behavior sometimes (throwing others under the bus in order to appear to be a stronger player in the talent pool). There is also an 'up or out' mentality which makes a long term career almost impossible. The organization is flattening, so upward mobility is shrinking, which is driving talented people to leave the company in order to find promotional opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    The current path is going to drive a talent pool of people with very shallow experience in leadership positions, which means you will continue to make the same mistakes over and over. There is a place for talented, experienced director and senior director level leaders who are not on a path to be the next members of the senior executive management team, and you should focus more on developing that pipeline.

    I have been working at Whirlpool Corporation full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Broad product portfolio
    Global teams
    Ability to design truly useful consumer products
    Laid-back culture, friendly people

    Cons

    Lack of diversity (of thought, of appearance)
    Conservative -- afraid to take real chances
    Silo-effect hinders effective collaboration (across product categories, across regions)
    Top-heavy -- too many layers of management

    Advice to Management

    Take more chances in the type of people you hire and in the projects you fund and commercialize
