I have been working at Westinghouse full-time

Pros

- Westinghouse pays very well for entry level workers
- The benefits are superb (health, vision, dental, short term disability and vacation)
- There's always work to be had

Cons

- Westinghouse is a very "old-time" company (you won't get promoted unless you've put in enough time, etc.)
- Engineers are very stubborn about doing things one way and one way only
- Way too many forms to fill out for anything to get done
- Work is plentiful, but it is also very dull

Advice to Management

Let people telecommute for crying out loud! The power struggle behind not letting workers work from home that can is absurd.

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Westinghouse full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Nice main office.
    - Great cafeteria.

    Cons

    - Matrix organization. This style of management does not work for mega projects.
    - Absolutely will not finish current nuclear projects on time and within budget. This is not good for the future of the company.
    - Lots of inbreeding.
    - Hiring boom a few years back caused many people to be promoted who should not have been. This means highly incompetent managers.
    - How many CEOs has Westinghouse been through in the past 2 years? It's hard to keep track.
    - Many people lack experience. Poor quality of work.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees better. If you continue with the mandatory saturdays, you will lose your best talent.
