    I have been working at Westinghouse full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    - Cranberry Headquarters: Nice Facility, Cafeteria, Gym and Recreational Activities (convenient for lunch breaks)
    - Smart and professional employees, good people to work with
    - Competitive Salary
    - Different areas of the company to potentially move around in - some product lines are much more mature and efficient than others. You can have a different experience based on where you are at in the company.
    - There has been transparency with the ongoing technical and financial issues

    Cons

    - Lack of structure and training, especially for the New Plants division. The processes, tools and expectations aren't clearly defined.
    - Low moral with bankruptcy and other measures the company has taken over the past few years. It used to be a much more enjoyable place to work (company picnics, recreational leagues, happy hours, etc).
    - Overcomplicated policies and procedures. It is a strictly regulated industry, but Westinghouse has not helped itself with the additional paperwork and processes.
    - Started "tracking" work hours which can make you feel like you are using a punch card at a factory. Less motivation to be efficient.
    - Doesn't seem to draw from industry or other best practices and can feel like you are always trying to come up with something new.
    - Different areas of the company to potentially move around in - some product lines are much more mature and efficient than others. You can have a different experience based on where you are at in the company.
    - Many recent changes in the Leadership structure

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Westinghouse (Cranberry, PA) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Decent interview, very knowledgeable managers performing the interview. I did not care for the interview style. Very rigidly structured towards a behavioral question interview. Doesn't really give a good capability to discuss how one could actually benefit the company.
