    I worked at Whirlpool as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Had an amazing time working with the people. Very friendly and laid back. Great experience that has really opened some doors for me.

    Cons

    Stress of my job sometimes got to me. Position was located in a small town so local attractions/things to do, were low.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend more time bringing lower employees into your office and checking up on them. Give them advice not only about their job, but about their career goals.

    I have been working at Whirlpool full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Whirlpool is moving in the right direction with their "Straight Talk" philosophy. The management does a good job of rewarding most for their contributions.

    Cons

    Work-life balance is hard to achieve during heavy new product introductions. Major corporation and they go through cost cutting measures that includes job eliminations for some.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give clear direction and make sure all factories management are aligned with corporate management.

    Pros

    - Lots of smart, motivated employees
    - Company-wide policies and initiatives that promote positive work environment and culture

    Cons

    - some areas (like procurement) are not up to speed with the rest of the org, slows things down
    - too much focus on moving people around too quickly. Let them accomplish something first!
