Great company that values loyalty.

Financial Analyst (Current Employee) Benton Harbor, MI

ProsIt is located in a small town so if you wan't to live in a rural location it is a great option. They really do value development and loyalty so there are opportunities available to develop and in certain cases switch functions.

ConsCan be somewhat cliquey. If you enter through a rotational program you will have an easier path to growth than as a direct hire. backfilling and promotions are done more on a "who do you know?" basis than by utilizing HR to actively determine who is the best fit. Employees that work in functions outside of Sales, Mktg and Engineering will find it harder to advance. Support functions like finance, supply chain, IT, procurement, etc are much flatter.

Advice to Senior Managementcreate a more robust HR department that can better identify and promote talent.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good Place to Work

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Saint Joseph, MI

    I have been working at Whirlpool full-time for more than 10 years


    Pros: Very laid back and friendly. Lots of changes to be more lean and to eliminate the old-school mentality with respect to work hours, work… Cons: Can be VERY slow to promote its people, especially in the tech center for fabric care (laundry) engineers. Smaller town == no other major… Advice to Senior Management: If you want top talent to remain, then get rid of the forced ranking system.
