I have been working at Whirlpool Corporation full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Looks good on a resume. Forces you to deal with multiple processes, some of which are completely useless, and contradictory to success

Cons

No work life balance, expected to work 12 hours a day

Advice to Management

    I have been working at Whirlpool Corporation full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company pays a lot of attention to employee engagement, which is fantastic. There are plenty of opportunities to move into new roles and each employee is driven to be an active part of their career development.

    Cons

    The company is highly "matrixed" - along functional, regional, and product category boundaries - that creates unnecessarily long timing for decisions to be made. They use a "forced ranking" system of performance management - fitting a pool of similar roles into a forced distribution of performance. That drives behavior that places the individual before the company - I have never heard so many comments regarding "PMP" at a company in my life.

    Advice to Management

    Continue the focus on employee engagement and get rid of the forced ranking.

    I worked at Whirlpool Corporation full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great place to work for someone looking to move up the career ladder. This company likes to develop its talent. I really liked the products Whirlpool offered and learning about the different brands. Overall I really loved working for this company and left because of my spouse's job.

    Cons

    At the time I worked there they needed to improve their customer relationship management software. This may not be a con to all people, but it was to me; If you want to move up in this company than you will ultimately end up in Benton Harbor, MI.

    Advice to Management

    I think that processes needed to be improved to offer more consistancy throughout the organization.
