    Pros

    Whirlpool offers good pay, benefits and opportunity for advancement. Whirlpool has grown substantially as a global company in recent years and has a very diverse employee base.
    The company is very active in the community and offers a lot of employee health initiatives.

    Cons

    I think the company stumbles a bit on competitive strategy. You sometimes see market share loss due to a bad competitive decisions. Also the company be overly focused on cost reduction measures.

    Advice to Management

    Overall management is doing a great job.

    Pros

    Friendly atmosphere, people (even some leaders) are open to meeting and giving you the time to learn more about themselves and the organization. HR is very attentive to making sure that, as an intern, you grow and learn as much about Whirlpool as possible. Long term it seems that Whirlpool offers a lot of career growth and opportunities to move between different areas.

    Cons

    Could be more structured. The on-boarding experience left a lot to be desired. Location.

    I have been working at Whirlpool Corporation as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Provide you with a lot of responsibility, even as an intern
    - Focused on developing you as a leader
    - Open work environment which encourages collaboration
    - A lot of programs and events to get involved in outside of work hours

    Cons

    - The appliance industry is a bit slow-paced
    - As someone who likes living in big cities, the location is not ideal (nice town in summer, not much to do besides the beach and golf)
