I worked at Whitsons Culinary Group full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Free Food

Cons

The 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 ManagementAdvice

Get educated, street smart won't take anyone a long in a professional career environment

    I worked at Whitsons Culinary Group

    Pros

    Coworkers are alright. Free lunch.

    Cons

    There is such lack of support and appreciation from upper management. The employees are always the scapegoat. The managers and directors are very uneducated. If you are trying to be the better person and hoping to get promoted in the future, don't bother, unless you're there forever with your cane, then you will get promoted.

    I have been working at Whitsons Culinary Group full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Perks: free lunch, flexible schedule, great co-workers, can work from home if absolutely necessary. The executives make you feel like part of the family.

    Cons

    Benefits and compensation are not as competitive as other companies, communication is lacking on most projects, and budgets are always being cut even though the demand for resources continuously increases with each year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest more in employee development, avoid playing the blame game and instead work to move forward.
