    I worked at Weston Solutions full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Prior to 2010, Weston was a fantastic place to work - challenging assignments, growth potential, professional development pathways, great work ethics, and great management.

    Cons

    Management became "disconnected" from the reality of the global environmental business and made many poor decisions that resulted I huge business and financial losses and layoff of half its staff between 2010 and 2013.

    Advice to Management

    Listen and communicate with your employees and clients; don't over-promise; and don't treat your employees like property.

    I worked at Weston Solutions full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Learning experience, easy tasks, Work/life balance, more than 3 weeks of vacation times.

    Cons

    Not always challenging everyday, no room to grow, no pay raise, very low pay which was the biggest joke coming out of Weston, not enough experience, too many old folks. Too many BS going on. Lazy managements and having lot of breaks. Weston doesn't have bright future at all.

    Not good place for young professionals because there is no room to grow at all!

    Advice to Management

    Best of luck in the future.

    Pros

    Financially stable and growing; good work/life balance; not trying to be an EPC or construction company

    Cons

    Growing pains; challenging Federal contracting environment

    Advice to Management

    Company went through real struggles under previous management, but has stabilized and refocused on being an excellent environmental consulting and engineering company. While old problems were centered around how to get smaller, the company is now growing again and most challenges come from growing pains.

    Beautiful Campus, independence, that's all

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

    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.
