    Pros

    Very focused on development and transparent communication. There is a lot of engagement and focus on developing you individually for success.

    Cons

    Nothing that I feel stands out as a weakness. Very relational company, I have seen that become a con for some people who do not work well in that environment.

    I have been working at Whirlpool Corporation full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Blessed to be working for Whirlpool for over 25 years. My manager and co-workers are the best. Salary and benefits have been very generous over the years. Great place to work.

    Cons

    Performance management process bell curve isn't always fair to all strong contributors.

    Advice to Management

    Don't cut costs where your employees are concerned. They are what makes Whirlpool a great place to be.

    I worked at Whirlpool Corporation full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    A co-op position at Whirlpool Amana provided a challenging and rewarding experience. Hands on learning was available in every situation and I was treated with fairness and respect by the older employees.

    Cons

    Don't like the heat? The inside of the plant can get up over a hundred degrees on most summer days. Due to the nature of the building there is very poor cooling and it often can be unpleasant.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to challenge the co-ops with meaningful work. This is what set you aside from other employers.
