    I worked at Whirlpool Corporation full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great advancement opportunities and treated employees fairly. Working environment and people are professional and respectful

    Cons

    Reorganizations almost never affected my position but they were too frequent and sometime got in the way of being productive. Made some people very paranoid
    Also followed the crowd in corporate circles and were always looking to outsource some areas and finally did outsource my area. While treated fairly I decided to retire rather than work for the outsourcing organization.

    Advice to Management

    Forget the constant outsourcing studies. Let your professional people get on with their jobs without that threat hanging over them.

    Senior level management is not properly trained. Many layers to make changes. It's difficult to overcome past mistakes. Lack of transparency where needed. Slow path to diversity. Lack women in senior leadership roles.

    Train leaders in emotional intelligence, not just process. Trust employees. Narrow product offerings to relieve customer and logistical issues.
