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

Pros

The system they have for managing high potential employees is very good, and provides many chances for personal and professional development. Great place for young, motivated people to start or grow their careers with lots of opportunity to move up.

Cons

The appliance industry is very tough, and there are many pressures and challenges facing the business from new competitors in the market. There has also been a leadership change in the past 3 years that has changed the culture from a supportive, high performing environment into an aggressive, never good enough one driven in large part from the top.

Advice to Management

Recognize what has been lost in the culture and show visible leadership changes that put more balanced leaders into the top positions before it is too late.
