    I have been working at Whirlpool Corporation full-time

    Pros

    Company allows for self driven projects and unlimited movement abilities, Whirlpool values someones drive and ambition and has a proven track record of being able to promote from within to fill positions of need.

    Cons

    Hard to have anything completed due to roadblocks and paperwork. Company needs to focus on setting a firm foundation and adhering too that foundation instead of letting the standards become lax and bend.

    Advice to Management

    Work on building a foundation and adhering to it. Also, realize the assembly workers are possibly the most valuable asset when it comes to making changes as they are the ones who work daily on trying to improve everything.

    I worked at Whirlpool Corporation full-time

    Pros

    The company focus on cash flow means that they can invest when they want to , the question is whether they care about what you care about.

    Cons

    The corporate headquarters is geographically isolated from other major corporations so you need to work at understanding major trends in your specialty.

    Advice to Management

    More emphasis on getting people out from behind their desks and interacting with others in their specialty would help many aspects be more effective.

    Pros

    Decent pay, 401k... Steady work.. Fun with with fellow employees in certain areas

    Cons

    They don't care about employees as people. Your seniority means absolutely nothing even if you are a hard worker and have perfect attendance you will lose jobs to people with less time because they are friends with supervisors or coordinators. They force you back to work early if you get a surgery from working there
