      Not a bad place

      Pros

      I liked the people I worked with. The projects can be interesting; you're building a nuclear power plan after all.

      Cons

      Really hard to move around or do something new. Once you get pigeon holed into something, you're stuck. On top of that, oftentimes the tedious paper work far outweights actual design work. Not a lot of time is spent on something challenging.

      Pros

      Pay and professionalism of the workers.

      Cons

      Executive Leadership is weak. Very little direction is given from corporate and as such, each Westinghouse business unit is able to make up there are their own rules. It is not one compnany centric and as such there are many organizational silos. You live with the constant threat of layoff due to "right sizing" and outsourcing to low cost contries and as such emplyee morale is at an all time low. Employee individual ownership in the company is lacking due to the low morale and fear of job loss. Experience is either being let go or fleeing to companies with job stability.

      Pros

      CTO program- you can add an additional 4+ weeks of “off” time by converting overtime to compensation time. Nuclear is a very high standard of work. Both a pro and a con.

      Cons

      30-50% travel. “Go figure it out” way or teaching Nuclear is a very high standard of work. Both a pro and a con.

      Pros

      Helpful and friendly team, safety.

      Confusing on what to do at times, but then again, got hired and work from home. Will probably be more clear when I actually go into the office.
