    I worked at Westinghouse full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Challenging work environment gives chances to excel. Extensive international travel can be fun for a while. Great high energy co-workers who want to do their job the right way the best they can.

    Cons

    Complete lack of integrity from Senior Management. Decisions are pushed down 1 level with “influence” to keep the Sr Leadership’s hands clean. Short sighted decision making and internal empire building. People are expected to give their all and “take one for the team” as far as OT and Bonus cuts but are getting laid off at a whim with only 30 min notice....

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the employees who are trying to work within the regulatory requirements and stop trying to weasel out of every issue. Own the issues and fix them. Stop passing the buck.

    I have been working at Westinghouse full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The money is good but it is hard to advance or even get a raise.

    Cons

    Management is poor. They put managers in areas that they know nothing about. Then they want you to bring them up to speed so they can manage YOU!

    Advice to Management

    Don't micromanage. Listen to your long time employees. Safety is important but use some common sense. Don't tie our hands behind our backs and expect us to to perform at our best.

    I worked at Westinghouse full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Obviously, there are none since I was part of the recent workforce reduction. On second thought, maybe that is a pro.

    Cons

    Just read the 'real' reviews that are posted here. It is so very sad that those of us who were once proud to be Westinghouse employees are now embarrassed.

    Advice to Management

    Really... Jose, Dan, and the rest of you KERPs and KEIPs? If it weren't for the rest of the TEAM (Together Everyone Achieves More), Westinghouse would not be around and you will never be able to meet your metrics. Decline your salary adjustments and bonuses and insist they instead be distributed amongst those who truly deserve it!

    Pros

    Great people to work with.

    Cons

    Company execs still have heads in the sand on how employees really feel and they really don't care to know. As long as we meet the "business goals" they get their giant bonuses.

    Advice to Management

    Walk around and talk with employees. Don't flaunt the bonuses that you will get on top of your already inflated salaries while you are laying off so many.

    Pros

    Getting less and less every day

    Cons

    CEO and Senior leadership insist on enriching themselves while planning to layoff 2100 employees. Entitlement as opposed to pay for performance is the norm. CEO is reason Fuel Facility was shutdown due to lack of oversight. Now CEO is expected to guide us through the bankruptcy but first with unearned 60% pay increase.

    Advice to Management

    SCANA listed lack of trust and confidence in senior leadership for walking away for contracts. Your actions continue to create distrust. Earn your pay by making Westinghouse profitable and then ask for an increase.

    Resign and plead guilty to fraud.
