    Pros

    Progressive- wanting to change for the better. Utilizes resources well. Gives people a chance to work and supports them

    Cons

    Too big to make changes quickly. Need too many sign-offs.

    Advice to Management

    Should have gotten rid of the rating and ranking before 2010. It lived is life. Should have come up with new ways to keep engineering functions operating at obtuse sights. You let a lot of talent leave when you closed legacy Maytag sites.

    Factories are filled with great employees. Pay varies depending on the role but is generally good.
