Disapproves of CEO

Pros

Compensation higher than average
Global presence with opportunities for international travel
Opportunities for advancement if willing to make sacrifices
Appliance discounts

Cons

Family work balance impossible
Unrealistic objectives
Silo mentality, not a lot of collaboration outside work groups
Leadership instability due to short tenures in positions

Advice to Management

Focus on your best assets, your people, even in poor econonic times when it's easier to do the opposite. If your company strategy is to be in every home, everywhere, then it should be in support of every family living in every home, which is not represented in your corporate culture.

    Cons

    must have a degree to grow and have upward mobility. They encourage and provide developmental career resources to those who want them

    Advice to Management

    me more hands on and in the loop with what your employees do and how they perform instead of looking at just the big picture

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Whirlpool pays well and has a very nice bonus plan. The opportunities for advancement are there and like most companies if you are willing to go the extra mile you can be rewarded.

    Cons

    Part of going the extra mile is knowing what answer to give, much of the management do not want to hear bad news. You can give truthful answers but they need to be very carefully worded. Bluntness is seen as not being a team player.

    Advice to Management

    Mexico is not the answer to all of North America's problems. Cheap labor will not make up for poor management and quality.
