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 Management

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

    I worked at Westat full-time (Less than a 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 Management

    Need more assignments.
