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 Management

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

    I have been working at Whitlock full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great company to work for! Management is easy to communicate with and they allow you to create your own path for success. I’ve watched many employees take on new roles that had never existed before, simply because they put in effort to develop themselves in what they are passionate about. Culture is very strong and family focused.

    Cons

    I do not have any at this time.

    Advice to Management

    Create more standard trainings across all regions to provide consistency.

    I worked at Whitlock full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great group of people performing good work in a hostile work environment.

    Cons

    Extremely high turnover due to poor work culture and management. HR Department head is totally focused on C level managers and his own advancement and views those actually performing the work as numbers that can easily be replaced. Employees work long hours and receive low pay without any sincere acknowledgment of their service.

    Advice to Management

    Really Listen to employees, rather than managers who are really out for themselves and focused on telling you what you want to hear, rather than what you need to hear. If you really want to be "number 1," than create a culture that truly values employees. Employees are NOT happy, and there has never been a company with unhappy employees that has reached number 1 status.
