Lots of opportunities for progression if you're assertive!

Senior Nuclear Engineer (Current Employee) Monroeville, PA

ProsVery flexible work environment. You really are in control of your own career at Westinghouse. The employees and direct supervision are all very friendly and easy to work with.

ConsThe requirement to charge a network and activity for 85% or greater of your time becomes frustrating after a very short period of time (if you are not "productive", you can not be considered for a merit raise - if you take your vacation and holidays, you are already only 90% productive). There is quite a bit of work that needs to be done, but it often does not accompany an active project. The company as a whole is a little top heavy - far too much emphasis on project management, and not enough emphasis on technical management. The business leaders don't seem to have a good understanding that the customers must be satisified. There is a great tendency in the organization to blame the customer when a deliverable is found to be deficient. There is concern among some of the working level that cuts may be necessary if the economy does not recover or the government does not provide money to the industry for new construction. There is also division between the engineers and technicians in benefits provided. Non-degreed positions get less vacation and pay more for the insurance benefits. It promotes a class system. Also, the winning performance bonus will no longer be given after 2009 because the company recognizes there are not enough profits to award the workers with a bonus and cover the overhead associated with Customer 1st and the New Reactors organization.

Advice to Senior ManagementRe-focus the business on actual customer satisfaction - Not on the process of Customer 1st. A greenbelt project should only be considered complete if the customer is actually satisfied by the result- not simply because it met the internal metrics. Consider a different way of recording time - the current system is punitive. If you need the workforce, hire it. If you don't, then don't.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
