Pros

- Great portfolio of brands
- Wonderful business sectors served
- By and large used to have a good corporate culture

Cons

- If you like weekly beatings, this is the place for you!
- The corporate culture has hardened and there is no job security here
- Whirlpool is losing to Asian competitors in technology, engineering and marketing
- Jeff Fettig is not providing any vision to turn the company around - except cost cut!
  (and cost cutting is NOT a strategy!)

Advice to Management

Whirlpool absolutely has the potential to be a leader in the appliance industry, and once upon a time it was a wonderful place to work. No longer. It is full of duplicitous executives (espicially HR leadership) who are rewarded for short term gain and cost take out. Until this fundamentally changes, my advise to potential employees is to STAY AWAY!!!

    Pros

    Very good organization to work. There is allot of opportunity to expand your knowledge in manufactruing of home retail products. The company is fairly flat from a management perspective, but there is allot of politics within the culture.

    Cons

    Currently going through staff and budget reductions. Difficult to determine if you will remain employed. Currently much of the system management and help desk support functions are being managed by outside vendors.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on quality of the products and delivery to the end customer. Too many projects are moving through tollgates without being vetted properly

    Pros

    Corporate culture and the active lifestyle events they offer outside of work. They attempt to foster a culture of inclusivity...they fail.

    Cons

    Very hard to move up in the company. The bonus structure is terrible. I received an exceeds expectations two years in a row and was never promoted. It just depends on who your manager is. The HR department really does not assist when you come to them.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees the way you would like to be treated. I realize that times are tough but the morale of the people is what will get this company over the hump. We all have families to take care of.
