    Pros

    - Industry is growing
    - Green company
    - Great salary & benefits
    - Management really seems to care about employee engagement
    - Many opportunities for young professionals

    Cons

    - Excluding engineering, career opportunities can be limited in certain fields
    - Growth opportunities in the future will most likely be outside the US and employees must be willing to relocate -- or at least travel
    - Management seems reluctant to introduce flexible working arrangements (telecommuting, alternate work schedules, etc.) that would improve family/work life balance

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to listen to employee responses to surveys and focus groups. Westinghouse is a great company, but needs to respond better to the needs and wants of the younger professionals in order to retain much needed talent.

    Pros

    As a technical person, one is working with the world's leading commercial nuclear technology. This experience is very valuable within the nuclear industry no matter what career path is taken. There are plenty of opportunities for mobility within the company, and managers can't block a transfer to a different department after 18 months of employment.

    Cons

    The technical roles are often undervalued by management. There is a shortage of technical analysts, so they are encouraged to stay in the same role while receiving minimal progression in compensation as a group. The compensation pool assigned for the department as a whole is often barely in line with or just below inflation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider increasing compensation pool to nuclear engineers if there is interest in keeping qualified technical persons from seeking a management route.

    Pros

    Great advancement opportunities. Management promotes advancement. Great amount of knowledge.

    Cons

    People are very much in their own click of friends and help out only each other. Some feel as though they are better than others in the Accounting fields

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to spread the word about Nuclear Energy and its benefits to countries worldwide.
