    I worked at Westinghouse full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good pay Really interesting work Flexibility with PTO

    Cons

    Work life balance - you're on the road 2 weeks - months at a time in some cases It's very.... 40+ white male. If you're "different" from that, you may be treated differently by some technicians.

    Current Employee - Principal Engineer in Pittsburgh, PA

    I have been working at Westinghouse full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Excellent pay and benefits for Mangers, Directors and Executives hired from outside.

    Cons

    Westinghouse hires some of the smartest people around and turns them into idiots.... at least that is how HR and all the great new minds coming into WEC seem to stereotype longer term employees. Forget about career advancement unless you worked with one of the new execs at their former companies. All the complaints of nepotism on here with the old guard are still true today as new hires come in and high five their bosses from previous engagements. Brookfield started out with a goal of cost reductions that appeared to be a good thing. Then WEC "Transformation" leadership decided to layoff administrative support, engineers, technicians all while hiring a new layer of Execs happy to line their pockets. Sadly, they are not following George Westinghouse's great leadership legacy, but rather falling into the robber barron shadows of the Carnegie/Frick/Mellon/Schwab/Rockefeller era. The new organization charts show lots of smiling faces in suits making this company great again. I just hope it doesn't tumble from being soo top heavy before I leave. ....and then there are the consultants. The constant churn gets old and you learn how to explain the same thing over and over again to each new wave of freshly minted MBA brought in to "help" figure things out.

    I have been working at Westinghouse full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Essential personnel, prestigious company, generally good quality people at working level. HR manager, of Irish origin - communicates with empathy and sincerity even when the news is awful.

    Cons

    Most of management is insensitive to the needs of the employees. All-hands meetings tend to insult people's intelligence. Upper managers seem to think re-organizing and re-aligning is the solution to everything, rather than removing impediments to success and productivity.
