    I worked at Whitaker Medical full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The company does provide a good base salary.
    Generally, the people there are pretty nice.

    Cons

    With regard to who gets which accounts, the politics can get a little messy. Some of the veterans can be a little pushy to get their way.

    I worked at Whitaker Medical full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    All coworkers were great to work with minus management.

    Cons

    Ask people to take a pay cut when they start making money, high turnover, extremely micro managed, management is just a placeholder, if you ask them a question they say "I dont know but i will find out". Austin office is closing.

    Advice to Management

    Get it together and actually train employees.

    I have been working at Whitaker Medical full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    AMAZING upper management. Jason (the VP) and Brian are the most caring people... they really want you to succeed. They are awesome about continuous training.

    Cons

    With sales, the pay is low. AT FIRST. You need to work a year or so before making good money. Be patient, it does happen for many people. BUT they find many ways to compensate you, like extra time off for hitting your metrics, holiday parties, etc. Many great perks. I had to leave because I was a single new-grad living alone that needed a higher income. I MISS IT SO MUCH

    Advice to Management

    Honestly, y'all are great. I don't have many complaints.

    I worked at Whitaker Medical full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I truly truly enjoyed my time at Whitaker Medical, I've ranked it number 1 best employer. The people are great, literally one big happy family! The management is very personable and will stop what they are doing in a heart beat to chit chat about what ever is a concern for you. The atmosphere and work environment is positive, and the company is always finding ways to keep you motivated and excited to be at work everyday!

    Cons

    If there were more growth opportunities, I'm pretty sure I would have retired with this company.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work - don't ever forget the Whitaker way.

    Pros

    Everyone was always willing to help get you started and offer tips based on their experience. Not much drama in the office.

    Cons

    As a recruiter, this job is cold calls all day. They expect you to make 100 a day into hospitals and doctors offices which I found very stressful.

    Advice to Management

    More call camps to help new recruiters learn better cold call techniques.

    I have been working at Whitaker Medical full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Thw culture of Whitaker Medical is very supportive both professionally and personally. Individuals are rewarded for their work; the harder you work the more you make. They encourage work/life balance and offer support and time off when needed. There is very little turnover, and the majority of the senior producers have been at Whitaker for 7 yrs plus. (that says alot about the company)

    Cons

    Lack of opportunities for advancement

    Advice to Management

    Opportunity for advancement ie: leadership roles over each department

    Pros

    There is great income potential if you work hard. Business-casual attire and aesthetically pleasing work environment. Small enough to offer a "family" feel. Recruiters work within a team as well as individually. Benefits, perks, people are above-average for the industry.

    Cons

    Very hard to move up in the company because they don't place much emphasis on growth. This is not a huge problem for those who don't care to move into a management role, but if you don't want to solely work a desk for the rest of your life, it can leave you feeling professionally stunted.

    Advice to Management

    Grow the company so you can offer more management opportunities.
