I have been working at Whirlpool Corporation full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

It 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.

Cons

Can 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 Management

create a more robust HR department that can better identify and promote talent.
