    I worked at Westinghouse full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    you get paid buku since everthing you do has the nuclear stamp of approval. pay reflects.

    Cons

    everything has the nuclear stamp so everyone is scared to actually do work. anything you do is scrutinized and picked apart b/c there is a fear that anything done wrong could be held accountable for a nuclear meltdown.

    Advice to Management

    have better communication with you employees and cut the amount of managers. there are way too many levels of management.

    I have been working at Westinghouse full-time

    Pros

    Great talent
    Flexible hours, work from home options
    New owners (Brookfield)
    There HAVE been raises in recent years - no, not everyone gets one, depends on performance
    Exciting growth areas for the future

    Cons

    Not much that other companies don’t also have
    -Some of the senior leaders (not all) are not in tune with the employees
    -Former CEO and owner (Toshiba) were terrible and forced us into difficult situations. We are recovering well though.
    -Top heavy with too many VPs and directors that are not doing value added work

    Advice to Management

    Thin out the ranks - lessen the hierarchy
    Provide non-financial perks when finances are tight like extra vacation
    Remove COO
    Getting rid of the pension has made mid-career professionals portable, need to reinstate something to retain talent
    Continue to implement the good changes
    Incentives should be applied to all employees

    I have been working at Westinghouse full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Get to meet a lot of different mechanical, electrical, computer science, and industrial engineers. Networking is good. There are fellow employees and some managers that are trying to change things. Resistance to change has been very high my entire career there. Its not impossible to implement change, but it will be a long haul...but that's what makes us stronger. trying to improve and generate ideas. Its an uphill battle, but change will and must occur or else this company won't expand.

    Cons

    Very little opportunity since the downturn of the nuclear market. People tend to find a niche and stick with that niche their entire careers. Not a good place to go if you seek to learn multiple new skills.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the ideas, opinions, and expertise of your engineers in regards to work process and execution. Stop placing managers in rolls where they don't have any idea what their stuff does, and how they accomplish their work. Seek the opinion of those in the loop of the project and present this truth to project planning.
