      Current Employee - Senior Accountant in Benton Harbor, MI

      I have been working at Whirlpool Corporation full-time for more than 20 years

      Pros

      Whirlpool has been great to me over the last 30 + years. My leadership over the years have been a great advocate of Work /life balance. The last few years have been a personal struggle for me, as I have terminal cancer. They have been great in working around my treatments plan. Honestly working through treatment has been the best for me, as it gave me a purpose to feel needed and positive each morning. Thanks Whirlpool...

      I have been working at Whirlpool Corporation full-time for more than 20 years

      Pros

      I love working for a company the size of Whirlpool as it lends so many interesting and varied avenues for growth and development. And Whirlpool really values its people, making pursuing that growth extremely approachable. It also doesn't hurt that we're such a major player in the appliance industry - with a whole slew of amazing products to stand behind. I'm very proud to be a member of the team here!

      Cons

      Because of the size of the company, it can sometimes take quite a bit of time to find the right opportunity to advance. Especially if you're looking to move into a particular role. However, if you keep an open mind about where you might head next, opportunities are always along. It's just sometimes hard to know where to look.

      I have been working at Whirlpool Corporation full-time for more than 20 years

      Pros

      Working for Whirlpool has been a great experience for me. I love the flexibility to work from home when needed and my manager is always willing to work with me whenever I have a need or concern.

      Cons

      Bonuses are a plus but it has been many years since we've received the entire 100%. No onsite exercise facility at corporate. Appliances are only free to employees who are upper level managers or above.

      Advice to Management

      Bonus ratings should be decided based on departments and not as a company as a whole. Offer additional flexibility such as working four 10 hour days a week. Offer free appliances to all employees every other year.

      I have been working at Whirlpool Corporation full-time for more than 20 years

      Pros

      Whirlpool is a solid company that is committed to it's employees. There is very intentional work focused on growing the engagement of the employees as Whirlpool knows that an excited and engaged employee delivers better performance to the company.

      Cons

      Whirlpool is a relationship based company (fairly positive but can create some difficulties). It is important to be very teamwork focused. Success comes from understanding how multiple functions can accomplish much more then just the sum of their work.

      I have been working at Whirlpool Corporation full-time for more than 6 years

      Pros

      Whirlpool offers good benefits as a company that is the global leader in it's space. Field-based employees enjoy a lot of autonomy to focus on getting in front of customers and winning business. Products are at parody or better with competition. And there is a strong culture of a people-focused, especially within the sales organization.

      Cons

      Whirlpool's product development can be very reactionary at times. Whirlpool is a financially-driven company, so it can be tough to make changes or improvements to processes & tools if there isn't an easily demonstrable ROI.

      I have been working at Whirlpool Corporation full-time for more than 6 years

      Pros

      In the 6 years I have worked for Whirlpool, I have had lots of opportunity for advancement and the coaching to support it.

      Cons

      Would like to see a bigger focus on ensuring people leading experience and coaching for people leaders is provided prior to achieving Director level or higher.

      Advice to Management

      People often don't leave companies but leave managers. With that in mind, a focus on developing soft skills and talent management is critical but seems a bit lacking for new people leaders, especially those individuals who haven't had people leading opportunities prior to Director level positions.
