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

    Pros

    Whirlpool is a global company that still feels like a small company. The value placed on support of the surrounding community makes me feel good about the company I work for. The investment that Whirlpool makes in ensuring a valuable work/life balance for their employees reinforces that feeling.

    Cons

    As with any midwestern company, trekking in through the snow and adverse weather can be tough during the winter months. That's where the ability to work remote though is a great benefit.

    We love that you feel good about Whirlpool and recognize how invested we are in the communities we operate in. Spreading a little joy to people within our communities matters!

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

    Pros

    Rotate quickly (typically no more than 2 yrs in a role), strong finance team engagement, new resources for employees (paternity leave, health rebate, onsite daycare coming), not hierarchical

    Cons

    Can be overly relationship based vs process based, multiple reorg's in the past 5-10 years, finance is stretched from a resource standpoint

    Advice to Management

    Continue to be transparent and up front with the state of the business, continue to take risks and look outside of the core, continue to find additional ways to improve employees lives and work environment

    Thanks for providing your honest review of our company! We are also very excited about the future on-site child care facility coming to the Twin Cities location.

    Pros

    Whirlpool is a positive environment where everyone is treated like a human being and not just an employee number. The Leadership Team keeps communication open and provides constant feedback and encouragement to help me be successful in my current position and within the company.

    Cons

    After 6 years with this company, I can honestly say I do not have any negative/cons in regards to this corporation. It truly is an awesome place to work!

    Pros

    Most everyone here is upbeat and happy to help, it is fairly easy to move to a new position within the company.

    Cons

    You have to be very mindful about what you say to certain people because they will not let it go and they will try to make sure you are stuck in a position you do not want. This building is a lot like a high school and all its clicks.

    Advice to Management

    there needs to be someone we can go to about care advisers, and not another care adviser, they all look out for each other and if you have a problem with one of them, whether it is because of something they said or how they treated you, if you tell another care adviser nothing gets done. They put you in a room with the very person that caused you to seek help to begin with as well as two other people and tell you how this is the way it is and nothing you do will change that. It is very demoralizing and unprofessional.
