    Have the, Lead tech, the PM, and the office Manager meet, before, during, and at the end of the project, to improve standards, time frame, and miscellaneous encounters.

    I have been working at Whitlock full-time

    Pros

    I'm allowed to function in my position without being micro managed. I feel like I have a chance to input my thoughts and opinions and that the result is a positive effect.

    Cons

    Hey, it's the AV business where we integrate products made by other companies and yet we still have to be responsible for everything. It's always a challenge to find products that work like advertised, and a challenge to deliver projects that meet our customers expectations. Unfortunately there is a disconnect in this area from time to time.

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening to your employee base and communicate to each group about relevant issues within that particular group.

    Pros

    Culture of truly great people, a real work family.

    Exposure to high end integrations adds valuable experience.

    Leadership is truly "open door" and do what is needed to improve and grow the company.

    Hard work and dedication do not go unnoticed.

    Customer centric means doing what it takes to ensure the customer is taken care of.

    Room for growth, promotions often come from within.

    There are many examples that the leadership of Whitlock really care about their employees

    No two days are the same making it impossible to get bored with your job.

    Cons

    Just like any integration job, changes and variables require us to shift gears or change direction at a moments notice. This sometimes requires long hours to get it right. This job requires someone flexible and who can think on their feet.

    Advice to Management

    Not to rest on improvements and growth of late, but to build upon our success.

    I worked at Whitlock full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Nationally-deployed AV systems integrator, with its sights focused on doing business with large-scale, Fortune 500 companies. If you like working in an environment where you will be interacting with the "big boy" firms, you will have that opportunity at Whitlock.

    Cons

    The company entered the highly competitive Silicon Valley market with too light a footprint, and years after its local competition had established themselves. Too few human resources, too little in the way physical resources to meet the requirements of highly-demanding accounts they targeted (the biggest firms in the tech sector). Especially when compared to other, longer-established (in the territory) integrators, who had been cultivating business relationships with those same clients for years, and who had built physical and human infrastructures long before Whitlock entered the local market.

    Advice to Management

    There's an old saying; Go big or go home. Yes, it's expensive to start up a branch in the Bay Area, and pouring capital into this region is likely to mean a number of years of losing money until the market bears fruit. But sometimes, that's what it takes to be successful. Ask Amazon about that.

    Pros

    Great reputation among AV integrators, great people, good work/life balance. Decent pay

    Cons

    Slow processes, over-worked Project Managers resulting in lower quality work. Insurance could be a bit better

    Advice to Management

    Expedite the quote process. Create change before it's desperately needed. It feels like we're getting bogged down from growing so much.

    Pros

    The Management Team and support. The pay and money spent to help an individual or the project is refreshing. Overall a great place to work for.

    Cons

    The fast pace and non-stop volume is sometimes over the top. The benefits can also improve to help the comp plan.

    There are some challenges with internal processes due to our growth. Hoping several of the investments to scale make a big impact in this area down the road.

    Advice to Management

    Keep your focus toward culture, growth and rewarding your best people. Leadership development and training should make a positive impact. Having talented and happy people will make any organization great
