Current Employee - Mechanical Engineer in Cranberry Twp, PA

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

Pros

Modern facilities and communications from leadership including active blog and weekly voice mails keeps all in touch with company. Global company with international opportunities. Management has gotten rid of poor performers and shaken up things for the better. Added over 5,000 employees in last several years. New CEO making a more modern company with new leadership accountability.

Cons

Not for those who just want a job. You have to want to be part of the nuclear business it's very demanding standards and not for everyone. Hours are long but accomplishments are felt doing something important like new greenhouse gas free generation of electricity.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You have a lot of alignment with employees. New CEO has brought focus and dealt with performance issues. Keep communicating its a stronger team everyday. Thanks for pushing nuclear and personnel safety culture shows you get it and care.

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

    Pros

    Great place to work with diverse locations plus has international opportunities to develop skills. Lots of changes that are going in the right direction. New energy levels and focus helping to deal with large workload. Strategy from top to bottom of the organization with good communication.

    Cons

    Some legacy behaviors hard to change. Mid management is weak and tolerated by Oldboy network that has recently been busted apart. Hope on the horizon.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to push out poor performers in the company. Employees really like the blogs voicemails and communications to help tie in to the strategy.
