High Paced Professional Environment
Project Manager (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – June 27, 2016
Whitlock is a great company to work for. A great family environment, but the balance of work life and family life is difficult to maintain, and often you are overloaded with work. It has been said many times to "do more with less" and the ship is "lean and mean".
The offered training, and since they have the reputation that they have for quality work, I had the chance to work with cool new products and great companies; from simple equipment to extremely complex, like the Barco Transform-N video streaming equipment.
Management seemed to support you, but they are puppets of the corporate accountant bean counters, and sometime they didn't have a full understanding of the projects you worked on and what you needed to do to support them.
The workload is/was back breaking, but it made you adapt to high pressure situations and think outside of the box.
The best thing about Whitlock is the people I worked with, and great support staff. Management did what they could to keep moral high; Christmas party, bowling party, craw-fish boil, and bi monthly birthday luncheons.
