I worked at Whitney Holding

Pros

Whitney Bank is a respected name in the local community, with a long standing, solid reputation. It's a company that is synonymous with New Orleans. The culture is old fashioned, but positive. The people are fun-loving and loyal. The bank returns that loyalty for the most part...

Cons

While Whitney has a long history, they tend to not be a very progressive company. Change is very slow to develop. A younger professional may not find the culture to be appealing compared to competitors. It can be a formal, suit-wearing, blue-blood culture.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I would say management needs to take a look at some of the more progressive companies out there (the ones that consistently land on those "best places to work" lists) and try to incorporate some of those features into the bank's culture. I understand Whitney has a certain image they like to project, but it may be time for a makeover on the inside...

    I worked at Whitney Holding

    Pros

    Whitney takes very good care of its employees, particularly evident after Katrina. Whitney is a good member of the communities it serves.

    Cons

    Senior management has not communicated well with regions outside of New Orleans about the direction of the bank. Mediocrity is rewarded and incompetency is tolerated at all levels within the organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communication should be improved and be more consistent across the bank's footprint.

    I worked at Whitney Holding full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Willing to train
    Freedom to do additional projects
    Open door policy in the group I worked with

    Cons

    Compensation in the operations area is the hugest drawback but that's pretty normal across the industry.
    Not the easiest company to move into a new role.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give internal employees a spot on the manager trainee program. I understand you want to bring in recent grads but put some weight behind excellent employee's track records.
