Pros

The people at Whirlpool are fantastic. The company is very invested in the community and goes the extra mile to be a good corporate citizen.

Cons

Headquarters is in a very small town. It's a good place to start your career or raise a family but being mid to late 20's and single in this town can be difficult. There can be some elements of favoritism to certain employees.

Advice to Management

Whirlpool internally prides itself on innovation but often builds its strategies around concepts that simply mimic their competitors. Morale was poor towards the end of the year and many good employees were leaving the company. 2012 is a big year in deciding what direction the company heads for the next 100 years.
