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

    Pros

    Great compensation in comparison to the region of Pittsburgh.

    Cons

    No matter the amount of work that you put in or what you accomplish. You will not be appreciated. Snap judgements are made and people scramble to place the blame. Schedules are unrealistic. Knowledge is lacking. Methods are questionable. Highly unprofessional upper / middle management especially when it comes to scheduling. New CEO essentially brought on board to get the company back to higher volumes of profitability for share holders (Toshiba).

    Advice to Management

    Actually plan out your projects by seeking the advice of engineers who perform the work. In addition, consult, engineers before you place bids on deliverable products you have never developed!

    I have been working at Westinghouse full-time

    Pros

    Flexible work week. Actually has a pension. Provides an additional 2 "floating holidays" per year that are nice. The work itself is challenging and resume as well as confidence building.

    Cons

    Its like working for the same company Dilbert does. Forecasts are never right, disconnect between levels in the company is massive and once in a job, getting even a lateral move is unnecessarily difficult. Lacks transparency- layoffs occurred at our site with no notice, nor any notification our co-workers were gone.

    Advice to Management

    Cranberry and the rest of the company are not on the same page. Anytime I hear a communication coming from Cranberry it is very obvious there is no communication to between the two sites. Accounting doesn't know what Supply Chain is doing and set goals directly in conflict of one another- and we all suffer for it.
    Also why bother having a mission statement if has no impact on our goals or is never referred to?
