    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.

    Pros

    Great people who genuinely want to create world class products. New development process looks promising. Summer hours are great. Employee purchase program is excellent.

    Cons

    Executive level management doesn't have a clue. Seems like they want to off-shore the technical work. IT systems leave a lot to be desired. Went Google, should have stayed with Microsoft.

    Advice to Management

    Do what's best for your employees first and Wall Street second.

    Pros

    Flex time is good, you manage yourself if you're in the right group. Amazing opportunity to learn if you want to.

    Cons

    Corporate refuses to be innovative in any way. Whether it's their product or internal processes, they follow instead of leading. Also, pay tends to be below market value

    Advice to Management

    Pay fair market price for employees to retain top talent, it's worth the price. Be more open minded in regards to innovation whether it's product or processes. Be willing to take a bit of a risk.

    I have been working at Whirlpool Corporation full-time

    Pros

    Whirlpool Corporation as any big companies offers a decent level of benefits and stability.

    Cons

    Lately, specially in Electronics, the company is lacking on management and strategy. Leader is a Mechanical Engineer with very limited experience with new technologies as such as IoT, WIFI, Displays, etc. Company will struggle in a short term to compete with koreans and europeans competitors. Specially when Electronics is the responsible for interface and performance

    Advice to Management

    Change 3 levels down on Electronics Leadership and bring someone that can make the difference and bring Whirlpool back to have some chance in compete.
