Depends a lot on your project directors...

Research Assistant (Former Employee) Rockville, MD

Prosgood benefits, flexible working hours, some interesting work

ConsOne's experience at Westat depends so much on who is directing the projects that you are working on. As someone fresh out of college, the project director of the main project I was staffed on did not take the time to train me or nurture me as an employee. In addition, there are a lot of strange "research types" at Westat. For the most part, employees are older and have worked at Westat for the majority of their career.
