    I have been working at Westinghouse full-time

    Pros

    Flexible work week. Actually has a pension. Provides an additional 2 "floating holidays" per year that are nice. The work itself is challenging and resume as well as confidence building.

    Cons

    Its like working for the same company Dilbert does. Forecasts are never right, disconnect between levels in the company is massive and once in a job, getting even a lateral move is unnecessarily difficult. Lacks transparency- layoffs occurred at our site with no notice, nor any notification our co-workers were gone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cranberry and the rest of the company are not on the same page. Anytime I hear a communication coming from Cranberry it is very obvious there is no communication to between the two sites. Accounting doesn't know what Supply Chain is doing and set goals directly in conflict of one another- and we all suffer for it.
    Also why bother having a mission statement if has no impact on our goals or is never referred to?

    I have been working at Westinghouse full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The pay and benefits are great. The cafeteria is also great, it's like a fancy mall food court. The work-life balance is amazing.

    Cons

    Our product limits us to only a few customers and few selected countries. This hurts the potential opportunities for the near and long term future. No program for keeping good talent and improving their skills and chances to move up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop an adequate Leadership development program to retain the talent.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
