Pros

Good pay.
Good work/family balance policies.
Company is going through a large growth period.

Cons

Lots of veteran employees (old guys) who are stubborn in their old ways and do not even consider new ways of doing things.
They nuclear industry in general is a victim of lots of politics.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Do not sign on to commitments to the customer that we can not meet.
Force different departments to help each other.

    I have been working at Westinghouse

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits. Safe work environment. A good port during a bad economic storm... at least as long as the market for nuclear power continues.

    Cons

    matrixed organization, poor information sharing, senior management has no outside experience, lack of decisive leadership, no accountability. Single market with limited buyers... thus limited growth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start listening to people who have experience outside the nuclear industry. They bring perspective and knowledge that you dont possess and can add value. And stop promoting failure within the organization.
