If you are unemployed and have no other job offers then this is an okay place to work.

Junior Employee (Non-management) (Current Employee)
Landover, MD

ProsMany different projects/clients it is rare to have the same day-to-day routine for more than a year. You get to learn about new technologies and environmental issues but rarely get involved in anything that makes a difference. Very flexible hours, people come into the office between 7am and 10am (but still work 8 hours). Nice office and physical environment with snacks and beverages in the break room. Calm, friendly and low stress work environment.

ConsNew West claims to be a "consulting company" when most employees are just "warm bodies" to be placed on site at clients. We claim to be a technical and IT company but it is not reflected in the work place.

There is a very unclear direction in the company and the only thing we are good at is wining new contracts. The company is very dynamic (not in a good way) trying to figure out what the management structure or mix of clients would look like in 2 or 3 years is near impossible. There is a very high employee turnover, approximatley10% a year, this has been going on for 2 or more years. When these people leave and their "knowledge" goes with them it is not replaced and the company simply moves in a different direction.

New West is only what it's current mix of employees offer and there is no core to the company.

 I do not disagree with any of the other reviews.

Advice to Senior ManagementFigure out what you want New West to be and make sure to tell all employees. Figure out what the company should be good at and invest in it to the point where if people leave the company the competency remains.

Hire GOOD employees, if someone is not working out DO NOT move them around to different positions to see if it will work. Also, make sure the individuals know what they will be doing and make sure it is something they want to be doing. Many new employees take weeks to figure out what their job is.

People quit the company for a reason, take a few minutes to figure out why.

Management acts like they know what they are doing because they are "management" and attempt to dictate to lower level employees. It would serve the company well to treat everyone as a professionals and discuss matters openly.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
