I have been working at Westinghouse full-time

Pros

Average pay is higher than many employers in the area, but inline within the nuclear industry. Beautiful new buildings with cafeteria and exercise center.

Cons

Danny brought the GE rank and yank mentality with him. All managers are going through an exercise to rank and rate their direct reports. Internal HR is gearing up for meetings with people who are going to get cut.

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

    Pros

    Good position in industry, good products, good pay for young engineers, a few good older engineers willing to mentor if you can find them. Decent for young accountants, too.

    Decent compensation and benefits. Low workload. (Pro from a personal perspective - not good for the firm.)

    Decent facilities at main HQ. Decent location if you want to live in the 'burbs.

    Cons

    Lots of nepotism and cronyism - leaders are promoted based on tenure and personal politics and not on business acumen, mission focus, or leadership ability. Too many average engineers promoted into non-engineering and/or management roles. Far too rare to see executives fired or demoted for below-average performance. This HR strategy and culture means too many incompetent people wind up with power inside the firm and drives away too many promising leaders.

    Advice to Management

    Most of you should be replaced with executives who can focus on running a business and delivering high-quality earnings. Place more emphasis on hiring and retaining competent engineers and leaders and get rid of executives who can't perform - stop punishing employees for your poor performance.

    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.
