    Pros

    Phenomenal company that has an employee first mentality. Very good transparency. Great leadership that doesn't micromanage and allows you to succeed in your own way.

    Cons

    Like most large companies, changes in policy can take a long time. Going through appropriate channels to get tasks completed can also delay resolution.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to motivate by finding the good balance between complete autonomy and micromanaging.

    Pros

    Whirlpool really cares about its employees, customers, shareholders, and communities and thrives on great company values and a rich business history. I went through one of their Leadership Development Programs for 3 years and the experiences, trainings, and leadership exposure has served as a springboard for my career. Whirlpool allows individuals to own and drive their career development with a suite of formal tools and a friendly, ever helpful culture. They work hard to create inclusion and strong engagement through various social, business, and volunteering events. The company is dedicated to remaining an industry leader, an innovator, and a great employer for many years to come.

    Cons

    Everyone I know loves the company. The biggest downfall is site locations in the US. Most are smaller towns that are very family friendly but lacking in 'excitement' and job opportunities for partners in different fields of work.

    Advice to Management

    Management has done a great job expandong their global reach, navigating a number of major acquisitions, weathering the recession, and fending off unfair trade practices from competitors, which will set them up for great future success. Keep it up!
