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

    Pros

    Whirlpool's values penetrate everything we do so you can feel that spirit in daily interactions. The culture is one where employees have respect for one another and create an atmosphere of inclusion.

    Cons

    Whirlpool can move slow at times. With a very large, matrixed organization, it can be hard to drive to get to decisions quickly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on growth. Organic growth. Appliances are a great business but we need to find ways to create incremental revenue streams.

    I worked at Whirlpool full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Pay is good for starting with no engineering experience. Very friendly people and co-workers. Nice office.

    Cons

    Too much rotation happening in company along with departmental changes making it difficult to have a single person work on a project from beginning to end. The commute is 1.5hrs everyday from Iowa City or Cedar Rapids to Amana, which gets worse during the winter time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Vacation time very low, appreciation of work should be done.

    Pros

    Advancement but must be self motivated and proactive.

    Cons

    Must be willing to relocate often to advance quicker. Key roles change every 3 or so years, sometimes not so good.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Commit to long term success over short term objective achievements.

    I worked at Whirlpool as an intern (less than an 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.
