    I have been working at Whirlpool Corporation full-time

    Pros

    Amazing work-life balance! Great commitment to community. Fantastic commitment to diversity WITH INCLUSION! Challenging work and culture of recognition. Upward mobility.

    Cons

    All big corporations probably have similar issues. Bureaucracy - slow moving to accomplish simple tasks. Frequent labor reduction actions.

    Advice to Management

    Be transparent about the bonus payout as it usually doesn't materialize. If you are up front with folks, they know what to expect and won't be upset. Focus on the great points of the company (work-life balance, diversity, career growth and opportunity) etc.

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

    Pros

    Whirlpool is a great company to work for because they understand the importance of the work life balance. The leadership is very helpful and always willing to improve. The company is also pretty flexible when it comes to severe weather situations or other situations that would require you to work from home.

    Cons

    Sometimes the company is not as open as they need to be in regards to exploring and trying new technology.
