They paid very well for having just graduated undergrad, but they had some management issues

I worked at Westinghouse full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Salary, flex-scheduling, some education reimbursement

Cons

Projects seemed to always fall well behind schedule, and outrageous overtime was required when that happened. Additionally, the culture was dated, and business practices need substantial updates

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Very little attention is paid to the "business" aspects of the company. Though this should always play second-fiddle to quality engineering and safety, it should be given more importance than it currently receives

    I worked at Westinghouse full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Flexible hours, a lot of young people, friendly atmosphere

    Cons

    Bad system of reward - project engineers do nothing technical and are able to meet many goals, so their end of term reviews look better than a system engineer. However, the system engineer is doing all of the technical work, which takes longer and requires more skill and knowledge. They should not be paid equally and they need a new system to reward bonuses for work
