Pros

Many 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.

Cons

New 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 Management

Figure 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.

    Pros

    Opportunity to work with incredible client who are truly making a difference in the world. Great place to begin your career.

    Cons

    Unstable management decisions which hurts middle-senior managers whom have earned the respect of the staff. Short-term approaches to solving systemic problems.

    Advice to Management

    Promote and empower senior mangers with vision while incentivizing retention of staff. Do not wait until staff has a competitive offer from an outside firm before raising your offer to market parity.

    Pros

    Joining New West Technologies (NWT) has been one of the best decisions of my life! This job allows you to work with so many diverse people. Coming up with solutions for a client really does challenge you to think outside of the box, so you will never be complacent in this position. NWT’s growth is impressive. The job itself is amazing because you get to meet different people and see so many different business processes at work. Helping clients achieve their business goals will provide you with valuable experience to leverage in the future, not to mention personal satisfaction. NWT is an awesome company to join and cares about their employees!

    Cons

    Find a way to bring all NWT locations (DC, MD, CO, NY, MI, CA to date) together for staff enagagement and enrichment opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    The Human Resources team has been a very postive experience for me and other employees. They provided a great first impression of NWT during the hiring process, during New Employee Orientation and continue to provide information and programs that engage staff. Continue to listen to employee feedback and continue to encourage staff to exceed client challenges as well as employee career development goals.
