    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.

    Pros

    The salary is attractive and benefits too. Another important point is how the persons are commitment and huge ownership.

    I think the goals should be for medium and/or long term, just focusing in short term can create not friendly environment.

    Pros

    You get a paycheck.

    You work with good people

    Otherwise nothing else, it's a call center so you get yelled at every day.

    Cons

    Lack of Vision - Company constantly changing tools and policy but never thinking about how it will affect customers and employees.

    Dishonesty - You're told not to lie to the customer, but you're also told not to tell the customer that there is a known issue with an appliance even though there's notices about known issues and your last 100 calls were about the same issue customer is calling in about.

    Advice to Management

    Help your employees by not asking them to lie to a customer but tell them not to lie. Admit to the customer that an appliance has a design flaw and help make it right. Don't let the Rep get yelled at over something we should be helping a customer with if we're being honest.
