I have been working at West Safety Services full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

It has a good mission. Heart is in the right place but the wrong people leading. The experienced workers keep leaving for other companies.

Cons

It grew too fast with too many politics within.
Low pay on average except highest levels (of which there are too many for such a small company). Declining benefits and expenditures in the wrong areas.

Advice to Management

People in management should be those who know the job with soft skills, not people who happen to have been in management before. If you don't know what needs to be done you aren't managing anything, other than to exist in a position you contribute nothing of value to.

    I have been working at West Safety Services full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    They have a restaurant and lots of parking. Pay and benefits are not bad.

    Cons

    If you like having a concrete ceiling over your head, no windows, sitting in a dark cubicle all day with horrendous incompetent management with no clue then apply here. Otherwise, run far away from this place, you will regret it. At one time it was a great place to work, but that has seriously deteriorated over the years. Don't waste your time unless you're starving.

    Advice to Management

    This place needs a revamp starting with the clueless management.

    I have been working at West Safety Services as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The cafeteria was good and cheap

    Cons

    Full timer complains constantly about the company. Today they cut the project and walked everyone out the door. The worst layoff I experienced.

    Advice to Management

    Please continue to run the company the way you are that way no one will come and work for you.
