    I worked at Whirlpool

    Pros

    There were lots to learn in terms of inter departments, one will get chance to interact with people from different departments and vendors. As I was in design team, so interactions was on quite higher side, we used to meet senior level team members from other teams and lots of idea's sharing and validation and impletation used to happen. One is open to speak about creative & innovative ideas.

    Cons

    There were no proper feedback session. Senior team member used to be bit bossy and insecure, what if junior team member starts working good and getting more recognition.
    in terms of accepting Ideas and implementing they are quite slow. By the time they understand market and realize need, competitiors go much ahead.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There should be timely feedback session. A proper growth plan for employee should be made specially if he/ she taking care of two different roles and want to grow in one certain area. Giving chance or say, trusting the junior level team member so that he too can feel motivated and show his true potential.

    I have been working at Whirlpool full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Small company feel, tons of resources, networking between plants, trainings & workshops, a lot of responsibility immediately. Unique ideas are encouraged, thoughts are shared, and teamwork drives this company. The company walks the walk with its values and morals. Opportunity for advancement from within and moving around the plants.

    Cons

    Plant locations (small manufacturing towns) - however all within drive-able distances to a city. ROI of 1 year makes project justification a little more difficult.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I am impressed with the management. We are pushing a new culture across all plants which takes some balls and persistence. Everyone is aligned and on-board. They value young professional ideas and opinions. I have only seen a VERY small amount of politics played.

    Pros

    Great place to work and i highly recommend it. The people are down to earth and easy to work with. There is a general agreement of respect of the employee and that is something that is rare in today's industry. I felt that as a senior engineering in electronic R&D center, my opinion was valued and management respected my thoughts and opinion.

    Cons

    It's not a really a con but it's the truth about the appliance industry, cost is the main driver for all your work as a design engineer or any other segment of the company.
