    Pros

    Forward thinking. Great innovation and company for one to get a variety of opportunities in different business-related fields. The scores are typically high on employee engagement. There are many events and fundraising for donations to both local and national charities.

    Cons

    Communication & organization. Some barriers can exist if management is spread too thin or if staff, in general, is not meeting the needs of the client.

    I have been working at Whirlpool Corporation full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good environment to learn, if you've got thick skin. You can get a feel for the industry, but not a likely final career for many.

    Cons

    High stress, management has been a revolving door for the past few years. Lack of accountability.

    Advice to Management

    Respect your employees, or soon you won't have any.

    I have been working at Whirlpool Corporation full-time

    Pros

    Fairly Stable, most people who work there are polite, you can learn a lot about many areas of business, and they will help pay for schooling

    Cons

    Company is slow to change and good managers are becoming fewer and farther between. Often loud/rude or arrogant people get promoted to management and they do not listen to others or if they listen they take credit for others ideas. Also a lot of nepotism-who you know not what you know promotions.

    Advice to Management

    Know the company values, make decisions in alignment with these values, and examine your behavior to make sure you are living up to these values
