Current Employee - Drafter in Cranberry, PA
Current Employee - Drafter in Cranberry, PA

I have been working at Westinghouse full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

The pay seems to be high for this area. The flex time is a life saver to both parents with school children and young professionals that don't want to wake up at 6 am every morning. They have a ton of in house training that can really help you learn more about the field we work in along with building your resume. It is also a great location, not being down town and all.

Cons

Sometimes the work become monotonous. Most people I know that leave, which isn't many, leave because they are bored.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Watch for lower management favoritism. I know it is everywhere, but there really are not to many issues.

    Current Employee - Strategy Analyst in Cranberry, PA

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

    Pros

    Good position in industry, good products, good pay for young engineers, a few good older engineers willing to mentor if you can find them. Decent for young accountants, too.

    Decent compensation and benefits. Low workload. (Pro from a personal perspective - not good for the firm.)

    Decent facilities at main HQ. Decent location if you want to live in the 'burbs.

    Cons

    Lots of nepotism and cronyism - leaders are promoted based on tenure and personal politics and not on business acumen, mission focus, or leadership ability. Too many average engineers promoted into non-engineering and/or management roles. Far too rare to see executives fired or demoted for below-average performance. This HR strategy and culture means too many incompetent people wind up with power inside the firm and drives away too many promising leaders.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Most of you should be replaced with executives who can focus on running a business and delivering high-quality earnings. Place more emphasis on hiring and retaining competent engineers and leaders and get rid of executives who can't perform - stop punishing employees for your poor performance.
