    I worked at Weston Solutions full-time

    Pros

    Unfortunately there are no positive

    Cons

    Lack of leadership and morals. Complete work without following scientific processes due to underbidding projects and blowing the budget on upper management salaries. I would not recommend this company to anyone.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to manage a project and your employees.

    Pros

    Beautiful Campus, independence, that's all

    Cons

    Low pay, long hours, bad benefits, unqualified managers, this place is concerned with one thing only, not the family atmosphere it used to be.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up before its too late

    I worked at Weston Solutions full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Always busy and never at a loss for work. You'll get OK experience but it seems they're more interested in you being a cog and grinding out (Not really a pro but I needed a 20 word minimum in this section).

    Cons

    Work hard but you have to pound your own fist to get the work you're doing noticed by management. Mediocre pay for the effort. Once you're leaving, then they see what you've accomplished for them and they make the effort to you to keep you. Not a great way to have your worth appreciated after several years at the company. Thought being loyal would have been a plus but not here unfortunately.

    I have been working at Weston Solutions (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Many different work/project opportunities are available. If you get in on the right contract/project there are great opportunities for training, etc. Opportunity to travel, work from home and or other offices. Great talent pool and technical experts in many varied fields. Large, long term contracts for stable work flow. Outlook has greatly improved from a recent restructuring, and begining to hire vacancies.

    Cons

    Benefits eroded away every year, while premiums rise, health insurance is now very costly. Depending on contrat or location, there is very little guidance/direction for new hires, basically sink or swim. Require you to donate first 4 hours of overtime (some projects/contracts do not require this), or all overtime untill 44 billable hours met per week. Frequently projects assignments are last minute, high-priority. Many senior & experienced technical personnel leaving the company.

    Advice to Management

    Communication from senior management to the regular working staff is very little to zero. This is disturbing considering we are going through a transition/restructuring, and many employees wondered if they would be laid off just a year or two ago. Senior management should work on their communication to the low men on the totem .

    Pros

    They are great about employees setting a schedule that works best for them. There are a lot of quality people working there as well.

    Cons

    Do not expect to make what you feel your value is. Not only from personal experience, but I hear a lot of people complaining about being undervalued.

    Advice to Management

    Play lower level employees a bit more in order to keep quality talent. Bring back employee moral events as well.

    Pros

    Lots of different projects to work on. Great co-workers with a very warm family feel. Wonderful mentoring environment with management that allows employees to grow and follow passions.

    Cons

    Constant reorganization. Since I've come on board we have had 3 different CEOs and seem to be "reorganizing the corporate structure". This excuse to withhold raises got old after a while.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the career path of employees in mind.
