    Pros

    Fantastic company and a wonderful culture. Great values and "walks the walk" when it comes to pursuing excellence and balancing the company and the customer. You are made to feel valued if you come in every day and do your job. Management really listens to the voice of employees. Flexible work arrangements help with work/life balance.

    Cons

    Limited opportunities to move up in the ranks if you're on a satellite campus -- unless you are willing to relocate. Getting better at change management, but still slow to move on some fronts.

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening to the voice of employees, and keep investing in technologies and people

    Pros

    o Good collaborative environment / good people
    o Good knowledge of the industry, trade partners and consumers
    o Generally, a strong product offering
    o Strong focus on product leadership

    Cons

    o Geographic locastion (SW Michigan) has a small population. Not great for singles
    o Business outlook for the next few months is questionable
    o Samsung / LG are strong competitors. Whirlpool seems to chasing them instead of leading the industry.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to put the right investment of time, money and people in product leadership. Do not knee-jerk resources away from this on a potential down market.

    Pros

    Great brands and people to work with. Excellent culture and community involvement.

    Cons

    Lots of lateral moves, seems like senior management makes the call as to where people get moved based on business need vs. career progression and growth opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Train people managers to be good people leaders. Avoid putting ill-equipped people in these roles, as people don't leave companies ... they leave bosses.
