I worked at Whirlpool Corporation full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Nice buildings. That is about it. A pretty view doesn't mean it's a nice place to work.

Cons

Just because someone says they want to be a manager does not mean they will make a good manager. Need to implement management training before they hand out the badge. Horrible low level management.

Advice to Management

Poor leadership and "relationships" . It is all about who you know. If your manager does not like the way your nose sits on your face you will not further your career at this company. Benton Harbor MI is a horrible place to put an $85 million dollar corporate campus. Some people will do okay in this work environment but if your not comfortable throwing your co workers under a bus, this company is not for you.

    I have been working at Whirlpool Corporation full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    If you're a new graduate (especially from Purdue), and this is your first job, you'll do great, probably enjoy the company, and have plenty of opportunity.

    Cons

    If you're coming to the company with experience, you're going to be disappointed. You'll be expected to know the Whirlpool processes without training, and denigrated when you don't pick them up through osmosis.

    If you like a company where your performance is judged not just by how you perform vs your goals, but how you are compared to your peers, you'll love Whirlpool. In order for your performance to be "above average", your co-workers performance must be "below average". This doesn't exactly contribute to an environment of teamwork.

    The quality of the company's products is so poor, that's it's an ongoing internal joke that employees can't even recommend their products.

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to manage by slogan. Try providing subordinates with what they need to do their jobs and make the company successful, instead of just expecting them to perform.

    I have been working at Whirlpool Corporation full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great company, treats employees well, good advancement options

    Cons

    Vacation town of St. Joseph is nice in summer months, but the lack of city amenities gets old after a few years.

    Advice to Management

    Keep unleashing talent.
