    Pros

    Great benefits and paid vacations. Most of the higher management were very good to work with and for; the people were great as well. The pay was good.

    Cons

    A lot of responsibilities for some and non for others. The plant was very hot.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Always be honest and kind to your employees, for they are the reason you have your job. Allow them to express their thoughts on issues that may help the company grow.

    Current Employee - Mechanical Designer - PTC Creo Parametric 2 0 & Windchill 10 0 in Benton Harbor, MI (US)

    Pros

    I perceived the Whirlpool management as the best of thirty companies in my career.
    Very well defined company standards. Well managed part naming conventions.
    Well defined engineering roles: engineers; designers; drafters

    Cons

    migrating software packages (Going Google; WMCS -> SAP) = short-term pain
    modelers should model and manage upper level assemblies, not spin wheels learning EN writing processes and company specs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not promote a long-term opportunity 6-18 months and then not renew the extendable contract for (3 of 3) contractors after four months. Economy shifts, horizons only allow to forecast work load just so far...
