Rewarding to a point

Senior Engineer (Current Employee)
Benton Harbor, MI (US)

I have been working at Whirlpool full-time for more than 8 years

ProsBroad product portfolio
Global teams
Ability to design truly useful consumer products
Laid-back culture, friendly people

ConsLack of diversity (of thought, of appearance)
Conservative -- afraid to take real chances
Silo-effect hinders effective collaboration (across product categories, across regions)
Top-heavy -- too many layers of management

Advice to Senior ManagementTake more chances in the type of people you hire and in the projects you fund and commercialize

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
