Pros
  • I worked with some great people over the years, especially in the emergency response side of operations (in 9 reviews)

  • Laid back mentality (depending on which office though) and a very good work/life balance - they do not work you to death like so many consulting firms (in 5 reviews)

Cons
  • Senior management is too involved in day-to-day business decisions that should be left to the division managers (in 6 reviews)

  • Upper management had a tendency not to address issues early on, instead letting problems fester until only drastic solutions were left as options (in 5 reviews)

    Pros

    Employee owned company; great opportunities for those who wish to support DOD And EPA clients; and, excellent technical resources.

    Cons

    Misguided leadership; Attempting to achieve profitability by reducing OH; losing great technical staff through voluntary turnover when they need it the most; need realignment at executive management level.

    Advice to Management

    As expensive as it may be, it's time to reinvest in your talent. They ARE your greatest assets and the only means to getting you to sustainable profitability. This company can be great again.....

    Pros

    Weston has a strong industry reputation and brand. The services are top notch, the industry knows who Weston is, the general public doesn't. Medium sized company, not large and anonymous.

    Cons

    Weston's operations still operates with the mentality the money is flowing. Weston's growth has slowed drastically, and too rise above the problems of the last 3 years, operations needs to change it's thinking.

    Advice to Management

    Take control and demand accountability for the sales.

    Pros

    very flexible with working from home and flex hours
    great team-mates
    had great culture when could focus on the giving back to society

    Cons

    Upper management tries to hard to get big contract even if it is not what the company is qualified to do.
    Often promotions are based on buddy feel not who is next/qualified, so need to be very out-spoken to get promoted.
    Horrible training program. They company promotes more of fight to work rather than let's make sure you grow with required skills.

    Advice to Management

    sell work we can do.
    train your employees (besides required health and safety training)

    Pros

    Close knit company, you can develop your company wide network pretty fast.

    Cons

    Relative small size of company makes it vulnerable. Bad performance of one unit easily effects the whole company

    Advice to Management

    Please focus more on Profit earning type of work, than just trying to expand.

    Pros

    Laid back attire (no suits), paid overtime, travel, paid per diem, racked up hotel and flight points, lots of field work, excellent managers, kind and friendly staff.

    Cons

    Tracking of hours (timesheet game) can be frustrating, no work = no billable hours = bad (sometimes), most employees keep to themselves.

    Pros

    Weston has a wonderful, relaxed and inclusive culture (varies from office to office though). Hard work, solid professional judgement and planning are valued. The company as a whole has a wide client base and encourages learning / professional development.

    Cons

    Financial issues in recent years (due to management no longer with Weston) have significantly impacted employee morale, and there has been significant voluntary turnover in addition to several rounds of company-wide staffing cuts. Senior management is enacting a major internal re-structuring of both administrative and technical staff, but a lack of transparency / details regarding the restructuring is fueling major employee discontentment and contributing to turnover. There has also been a significant loss of bench strength in technical disciplines due to this.

    Advice to Management

    Faster and more open communication regarding internal restructuring, as well as more financial transparency for future forecasts, will help to stop the talent bleeding.

    Pros

    Excellent work experiences and opportunities as well as really great people (past /present).

    Cons

    Low wages, few bonus opportunities, and almost complete disregard for personal lives outside of work. Large project losses exacerbated a lack in foresight for attracting new business - leading to continuous layoffs in the past 1.5 years and damaging morale across the board.

    Advice to Management

    Value your remaining employees, work hard to improve low morale, diversify your business, and get your acts together.

    Pros

    Big company, many benefits, flexible hours - as long as you completed 40 a week, you could work 4, 10 hour days.

    Cons

    Admin department was very catty - no marketing department

    Pros

    Support staff really worked hard as a team.

    Cons

    Extremely top-heavy Management only looks out for themselves and looking good to each other. The office had an all employee party to announce another management restructuring. This was to make inter-office collaboration more effective and be a really great opportunity for everyone. Two hours later the new management team started firing people. Managers don't know and don't want to know what their people have to do to get the job done. Instructed to write a detailed job description, but manager never cared to review it.

    Advice to Management

    No advice. They fired most of the support staff so now they only have each other to "manage".
