    The upper management allowed their employees to be apart of decisions concerning quality and safety.

    Coordinator for Service and Production (Former Employee) Fort Smith, AR (US)

    ProsGreat 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.

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

    Advice to Senior ManagementAlways 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.

    contract designer

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

    ProsI 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

    Consmigrating 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 Senior ManagementDo 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...

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    interesting work

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

    Proslots of free training. good pay and benefits , friendly people.

    Conslong hours, travel to factories from design center. large workload. people shift positions every year so it's hard to build up expertise. Headquarters town is highly racially divided. Life is good for corporate folks but not so much for other people.

    Advice to Senior Managementhire more people to get better quality work. Reduce playing of musical chairs with job positions for people. Otherwise, keep up the emphasis on lean, OpEx and other initiatives.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
