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

    Pros

    Flexible schedules available, lots of effort being put into providing employees with a convenient/modern work environment and the latest productivity tools. Friendly culture. Good pay/benefits. Plenty of good managers who are transparent and care about their direct reports. Lots of opportunities for development/career growth.

    Cons

    Its sometimes tough to get things done quickly with all the standardized processes to follow. Employee rating system does not promote taking the risks necessary to make Whirlpool the leader in product innovations. Sometimes there are several groups working on the same objectives (redundancy). Too many management layers and not enough workers in some areas of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Benchmark some other ways of rewarding employees that promote teamwork, smart risk-taking, and technical skill development.

    I worked at Whirlpool Corporation full-time

    Pros

    - Global company with an impressive portfolio of brands
    - Incredible opportunities to learn
    - Experience best in class employee training and development
    - Many job opportunities and growth options

    Cons

    - If you want to be top talent and have access to the "pros," be prepared to work 80+ hours/week
    - Highly political environment as you move up the ladder, particularly for the move from Sr. Manager to Director, and all levels above

    Advice to Management

    Convince the employees who are still there from pre-2010 that the company has the right to win in market in the long-term
