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

Pros

Decent opportunity to learn a wide range of business and technical skills. Good place to start a career.

Cons

Talent evaluation process is very over engineered. I have seen way too many great people passed over simply because we have to fulfill a ridiculous HR distribution. It's like "Corporate Hunger Games"

Advice to Management

You're a midwestern manufacturer - stop pretending that you're in Silicon valley. Instead of trying to force fit talent inside the constraints of a text book curve, try having some faith in your managers and their ability to keep/grow talent and weed out under performers.

    I worked at Whirlpool Corporation full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits and compensation, excellent products that are worth standing behind

    Cons

    Poor organization of duties and responsibilities and they have culture issues--dont make fat people tuck in shirts.

    Advice to Management

    Mass producing great appliances is one thing but service is still a required obligation and the customer need to be treated better than cycled around to keep call times acceptable.

    Corporate culture starts at the top. Set a better example.
