    I worked at TECO-Westinghouse full-time

    Pros

    I moved 200 plus miles to work for TECO Westinghouse and was very excited to do it as I knew the companies reputation from years ago. I was very let down after only being there a couple weeks as the way things were being done, was not like I had experienced in 30 years of being an engineer. TECO Westinghouse has employees in critical positions that are just not qualified to be in those positions and the decisions those people make impacts the company deeper than I think management is even aware of.
         After pulling my children out of school to move here to work for them I was laid off after only being with the company for 5 months. I know layoffs happen and at times there is anything anyone can do about it, but I would have expected a company as old as TECO Westinghouse is to have done their homework and come to a realization that the oil and gas industry was suffering very badly and any new positions that they had open would very shortly be in trouble. They hire without thinking and put the well being of those employees at risk.
        What's even more amazing is the lack of respect they have for these employees and their families. Currently TECO Westinghouse has several positions posted to fill. They are looking to hire new employees for newly created positions. These new positions are not very experience demanding positions to say the lease. So why would a company layoff valued employees when those employees could have very easily been trained to fill one of the new positions. I know I am more than qualified to 2 of the 5 positions they have posted and I have gone online and applied for both. I have also called the HR department at TECO Westinghouse and left a message on the voicemail with two of the HR persons and 3 months later, I still have never so much as received a call from anyone. I would not suggest anyone fill these positions because in my professional experience, this company is on it's way out and anyone and everyone working for TECO Westinghouse will eventually be without a job.

    Cons

    They claim they have great benefits. They don't. They are very average benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Spend some time doing some research. Know your market. You hired me months after the oil and gas industry took it's bad dive and this is the biggest part of your business, but you still moved me and my family 200 plus miles away from my family and friends that could assist me to an area where these is no work. THINK! THINK! THINK!

    Pros

    The fact they paid profit sharing in challenging years

    Cons

    They are promoting employees without the qualifications to be in the new positions. They are changing and not for the better.

    Advice to Management

    As you are about to be sued for failing to following company policies, I would recommend that process to begin.

    I worked at TECO-Westinghouse full-time

    Pros

    The environment is semi laid back. People are friendly and are willing to help you succeed. Benefits are good and overall work culture is positive.

    Cons

    It's hard to move vertically within the company. Company seems micro-managed to a level where you feel like you're back in school.
