    I worked at Whirlpool

    Pros

    There were lots to learn in terms of inter departments, one will get chance to interact with people from different departments and vendors. As I was in design team, so interactions was on quite higher side, we used to meet senior level team members from other teams and lots of idea's sharing and validation and impletation used to happen. One is open to speak about creative & innovative ideas.

    Cons

    There were no proper feedback session. Senior team member used to be bit bossy and insecure, what if junior team member starts working good and getting more recognition.
    in terms of accepting Ideas and implementing they are quite slow. By the time they understand market and realize need, competitiors go much ahead.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There should be timely feedback session. A proper growth plan for employee should be made specially if he/ she taking care of two different roles and want to grow in one certain area. Giving chance or say, trusting the junior level team member so that he too can feel motivated and show his true potential.

    The company's headquarter is located in a beautiful area, however it is distant from great centers and other multinational companies, what makes it harder for a spouse with a successful career to find something interesting in a reasonable distance

    Pros

    people in the factory are committed and nice. autonomy was somehow good.

    Cons

    Management was made of financial more than industrial people. never going on the field. thinking badly about people, willing to work only with new ones. but hey guys, old ones know better than you think, they had all the keys, you were just unable to find them. conclusion : you are bad managers. benefits via bonus was reduced year after year. nothing interesting here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be managers - respect people - have them working with you not against you.
