Pay is good but money isn't everything.

Test Engineer (Former Employee) Cranberry Twp, PA

ProsPay is better than average and benefits are good. Great experience for people just out of college. Get the Westinghouse name on your resume.

ConsBe ready to work long hours and sacrifice some of your family life. Mismanaged projects go on and on and miss their deadlines. Everything gets rushed and then planning gets thrown out the window. The testing is repetitive and can lead to boredom. Also don't expect to work with any cutting edge technology since the NRC requires "tried-and-true" equipment. Since the shop floor is union you are not allowed to touch anything. You will get scolded for picking up a screwdriver or multimeter.

Some engineers have pushed themselves into leadership roles which makes waves in the team. A few of the skilled engineers have quit because of bad management decisions. Seems like the good people leave for better opportunities and bad tend to stay on.

Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your employees. Let go the people who agitate the group and reward the ones who really know how to get things done. Also management has old timers that need to retire already.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
