    I worked at Westinghouse as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Loved all of the people I worked with there. Everyone at the Cranberry HQ was nice and helpful.

    Cons

    Bureaucracy of the nuclear industry definitely made the work slow at times. Also there are hge communication gaps between departments and such.

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

    Pros

    Great compensation in comparison to the region of Pittsburgh.

    Cons

    No matter the amount of work that you put in or what you accomplish. You will not be appreciated. Snap judgements are made and people scramble to place the blame. Schedules are unrealistic. Knowledge is lacking. Methods are questionable. Highly unprofessional upper / middle management especially when it comes to scheduling. New CEO essentially brought on board to get the company back to higher volumes of profitability for share holders (Toshiba).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Actually plan out your projects by seeking the advice of engineers who perform the work. In addition, consult, engineers before you place bids on deliverable products you have never developed!
