Pros

The culture is really relaxing, there was never really a point where I felt too stressed and overwhelemed with my roles.

Cons

It can get a bit boring from time to time when there is no project that you are currently assigned to.

    Pros

    It is very interesting to learn about social science research and studies.

    Cons

    There are gaps in studies that are available, so expect to be on the waitlist if you remain employed once your study is finished.

    Pros

    Tend to have long term employees that are probably Rockville MD based. Very conservative company that moves slowly but plans to be in existence for the long haul.

    Cons

    Very Rockville MD centric with limited to no incentive for those in MD to consider how to work with employees that are virtual. If an employee who was based in MD becomes a virtual employee, then it is much easier to be considered part of the Westat team. If you start as a virtual employee, you won't be included in many communications or considered viable to move to another position no matter what your credentials are. Even if quarterly travel back to MD was offered as an employment term, don't plan on this being the case.

    Advice to Management

    Personal supervisors should have time in their schedule to actually manage their staff. As an employee, it this appears to be an after thought and/or a inconvenience.
