I worked at Westat as a contractor (more than an year)

Pros

The people are friendly. The work is interesting. It can keep you busy. It is a interesting place to work.

Cons

If you are working as a temp, it is not that easy to be switched over to an hourly employee. The supervisors may or may not be completely honest with you.

    Former Employee - Senior Research Associate in Rockville, MD

    I worked at Westat full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The company respects individuals and allows them to grow. The projects are interesting and the company tries really hard to keep persons employed once they are hired. The company will try to find work for you in other areas when your contract ends. The company understands that persons have lives and will make allowances when necessary.

    Cons

    The promotion policies are somewhat slow. This makes it somewhat difficult to keep younger workers happy and once they have received excellent training from Westat, they often will look for work elsewhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company has begun to act like the big company it is, rather than the small company that it was in the beginning. There could be more consistency across groups in policies and procedures

    Former Employee - Survey Processor Staff in Rockville, MD

    I worked at Westat full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The employees are very friendly and has a great atmosphere from top mangment to lower level. The freedom to work independently without someone looking over your shoulder is also a plus. Well compensated too. Overall great place to work.

    Cons

    The downside of it is you only work if there is an assignment that fits you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need more assignments.
