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

    Pros

    Work isn't stressful
    40 hour week
    No traveling required
    Of course, this is dependent on the group you are a part of

    Cons

    Old school policies - just started allowing business casual year round; we have "flex-time" which really isn't flexible, still have to be at work at specific hours every weekday
    Few benefits - had the ability to work 9/80s but then that was taken away; no bonuses; only sign of appreciation is being taken to a holiday lunch once a year (not even a good restaurant)
    Little vacation time and takes 10 years before you'll get any more
    Extremely difficult to get promoted or to get any major raises
    So much management, that it can be difficult to resolve issues. It feels like if you want to get something done, just do it and ask for authorization afterwards
    Budget is in control - being within budget is most important
    Work is not challenging whatsoever and is more about writing documents than doing actual work. I am not growing in my skills, just stagnating.
    My manager often does not know what I am done - during my annual review he mentioned he hadn't known what I did for the past year

    Advice to Management

    Talk to your employees often to know what they are working on and learn about any problems that exist. Actually help your employees if they raise an issue rather than just saying you will. Listen when an employee raises an issue rather than quickly dismissing it and coming up with invalid justifications. Show some kind of appreciation for your employees other than holiday lunches.
