    I worked at Whirlpool

    Pros

    The salary is attractive and benefits too. Another important point is how the persons are commitment and huge ownership.

    Cons

    I think the goals should be for medium and/or long term, just focusing in short term can create not friendly environment.

    Pros

    Really good at promoting within and provides a multitude of personal growth opportunities. Great benefits and active in the local community

    Cons

    Salaried employees are vulnerable to being taken advantage of in regards to the number of hours worked in a week. Compensation for the work, without overtime, tends to run less than hourly labor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fight for your employees, headcount reductions have become common place in big companies like Whirlpool, and you need to make sure the workload is manageable for the employees you have left when you start making cuts.

    I worked at Whirlpool

    Pros

    People are the key asset, yet not fully utilized or appreciated.

    Cons

    Executives are not challenged to understand what their ideas mean with respect to getting the job done. Some executives are promoted though not qualified, that destroys trust and destroys upward mobility while stating that Whirlpool promotes from within.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take the outstanding training (leadership, development) and actually apply it at the executive level rather than
    just providing lip service. Forced ratings still exist even though it is claimed it doesn't.

    Pros

    Great people, clear direction from leadership on goals/objectives, and quality product. Contributes a lot to the communities around the various locations.

    Cons

    Goals, while clearly defined, can be extremely lofty and difficult to achieve with out the exact market conditions. Forces us to stretch, but can be discouraging at times.

    Keep up the communication. It is working well.
