    I worked at Weston Solutions full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Office in Mundelein is small. Company lacks resources to undertake basic projects. Since the company nearly went bankrupt in Taiwan, management let go so many people that the company is a shell.

    Cons

    Go find and sell your own work if you want to be employed at this company. If you are not billable, you will be immediately terminated.

    "Weston Solutions in 2009 won a US government contract worth US$54.4 million to design and build the first phase of the new American Institute in Taiwan (AIT) located in the capital city’s suburbs," writes the Post. "The AIT has represented US interests in Taiwan since Washington switched diplomatic recognition from Taipei to Beijing in 1979.

     "But three Taiwanese subcontractors say that since November 2011 Weston Solutions has been defaulting on payments" to 160 workers at the firms, according to the Post. They say they are owed about HK$122 million, or about US$16 million.
