    Pros

    If you love TECHNICAL, these guys play with the BIG BOY TOYS!! They are at the top of the food chain when it comes to high end / high profile projects. They do a great job of selling a POSITIVE CULTURE...
    This was the most technical team i have ever worked with.

    Cons

    The transition from a Big/Small Company to a Small/Big Company has created several internal issues. Not everyone agrees that some of these things are issues. Local management has main focus outside of local branch and doesn't have a good finger on the PULSE of the branch. Current technical leadership leaves a lot to be desired and is the main cause of several outstanding employees to leave. Corporate management roles out policies and procedures without accountability to local branches for adherence . Pay is at the low side for the industry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Really listen to what your employees are saying. Live out the culture you are preaching.

  2. Whitlock does not value employees and upward mobility is not likely.

    Pros

    Regular work, occasional cutting edge AV systems

    Cons

    Total lack of culture, the Whitlock bonus is "you're lucky you have a job", small raises if any, major favortism

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value employees, pay competitive wages with incentives or bonus

    Pros

    Company has partnerships with a wide variety of manufacturers, has a good portfolio of completed projects, and is well managed at the top. Very competent leaders in national and regional positions.

    Cons

    While executive management shines, they have a hard time finding competent branch managers. Communications within the organization or very poor. Local managers seem to have no leadership training.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good engineering skills don't automatically translate to good leadership skills.
