Lack of professionalism and moral

(Former Employee)

ProsFree Food

Free food nothing else than free food

ConsThe lack of professionalism at whitsons can be noticed across the company (with very few exceptions). The nepotism and favoritism is at its best, if you are a Whitcomb, married or somehow related to them is for sure that you would be managing a department or be promoted in no time.
As the previous review mentioned management is very uneducated, that you end up wondering how come they get to their positions....once again the answer is nepotism. And the uneducated management is the cause of that the smart, professional personnel leaves or get forced to leave. Most of the management that stays in whitsons is because they know wouldn't be able to retain a job in any other company.
Whitsons Is the place that you can get fire because you came late one day due to an emergency but they won't fire someone that steals from a manager (even when caught on camera).
PS. Human resources they are just clueless

Advice to Senior ManagementGet educated, street smart won't take anyone a long in a professional career environment
