    I have been working at Weston Solutions (More than a year)

    Pros

    I did fill this out already, but I will do it again. There are lots of large and interesting projects and opportunities. They have a big federal government portfolio, which means they have a stable source of revenue when the private sector markets go through ups and downs. There are offices throughout the U.S., so relocation is an option. I love the people here.

    Cons

    I would like to learn more about some of our other services and get involved in groundwater modeling, which we do, but instead I have been cast to the role of writing reports and doing data quality reviews, so I am not available to learn anything new. We had some turnover and a lot of people left and were not replaced.

    Advice to Management

    Let people choose from the huge pool of projects we have and at least get on a waiting list to learn new skills and services. I am a great technical report writer, but that is not how I want to spend my entire day every day. Have someone stewarding my career path and goals that also has access to new contracts and skills and stuff so people can work on becoming more well-rounded rather than just doing a few types of tasks. I have had maybe one performance review. I lost my supervisor more than a year ago and was never reassigned.

    Pros

    Travel opportunities and friendly co-workers. The office was just renovated in 2015/2016. They allow you to work from home after a couple of year working at Weston.

    Cons

    No bonuses or incentives. The demand for travel can be overwhelming sometimes. Little structure and room to move up the ladder. Overtime is sometimes not paid out (depends on your pay grade and main client).

    Pros

    this company had a really strong ethic and deliberate culture. Everyone cared very much about their jobs and everyone cared very much about each other.

    Cons

    working in the corporate office, your role was pretty much overhead and not directly tied to profits, so your paycheck reflects that.

    Pros

    easy to park due to small office size after lay offs

    Poor communication between management and field staff and employing to many managers dragging the company down financially. I would choose 0 /5 stars if possible

    Stop trying to protect your job by not communicating to field staff and using up the budget prior to commencement of field work.
