    Pros

    People are the key asset, yet not fully utilized or appreciated.

    Cons

    Executives are not challenged to understand what their ideas mean with respect to getting the job done. Some executives are promoted though not qualified, that destroys trust and destroys upward mobility while stating that Whirlpool promotes from within.

    Advice to Management

    Take the outstanding training (leadership, development) and actually apply it at the executive level rather than
    just providing lip service. Forced ratings still exist even though it is claimed it doesn't.
