- 3.0Jan 12, 2014ManagerFormer Employee, more than 10 yearsCranberry, PA
Many opportunities for travel and varying experiences. Competitive salary and increases. Extremely professional work atmosphere with chance to work with the best and brightest in the business
Extremely political and buddy-buddy management staff, typical large company environment of office politics. Very top heavy management staff, with front line managers expected to perform junior level activities as opposed to manage functional areas.1

Good Working Environment Good and Reasonable Salary
Terrible decision making on management Poor management Inefficient and shortsighted project planning Too much unnecessary meeting that doesn't contribute to schedule Unfair merit increase and promotion Unfair approval for master's degree funding Poor benefit Currently, this company is bankrupted and under serious financial issue15

401K and good pay scale for hourly or salary employees.
Corporate management has moved to hiring executives from outside the company who have no idea about nuclear fuel.2

Decent salary diluted by the long work hours forced upon employees due to poor management. Paid vacation that you can't take when you want.
No future. No trust. Impossible divide between employees and executives. Maybe bankruptcy will clean house and a different company will emerge, this one is broken.10

Good Salary and some talented individuals in the IT group
There are three main problems with Westinghouse: 1) The Nuclear Renaissance faded away with the Fukushima disaster. When that happened all the money and contracts disappeared (17 contracts for the new AP 1000 got put on hold within months) and the company had to begin several rounds of layoffs (currently still going on.) At the moment, there are hiring freezes in departments which have suffered tremendous shrinkage from layoffs and employees leaving. In the IT department alone, they lost one employee every month for a year. None have been replaced as of this time. 2) The Safety Culture attitude is overblown to the point where the CEO spends more time telling employees they need to hold handrails when walking down the stairs than focusing on real issues. It sounds like a joke, but the CEO actually said they would start reviewing security cameras to make sure people hold the hand rails when walking. Meanwhile, disastrous IT projects which cost the company millions of dollars are blindly mismanaged by incompetent IT managers who were promoted into positions they were woefully unprepared for. (Don't know what C# or Infopath are? Here, you can manage the Web Development team!) 3) The future is grim. Solar power and wind power (ACTUAL Green energy technologies) are predicted to be economically feasible within 2 years. Even if that projection is wrong by twice that number, it still means no country is going to want to pony up for a new Nuclear power plant. Eventually, Nuclear power will go the way of the buggy whip.7

Salary is good for the area and the work required Technology and work environment is among the best
Company Culture is dated. In the past promotions were given on tenure not skill or qualifications.

There are a lot of intelligent people working at Westinghouse that care to do the right thing. The job is meaningful and at the end of the day you go home feeling like you're working on something that will leave a positive impact on the world. The facilities are great, on-site cafeteria, on-site gym, new building, high-walled cubes, and lots of windows. Alternate work schedules and flexible time are great to have, and the continuing education is completely paid for.
The management has changed things so quickly and cut funding to nearly everything that isn't part of the main project goals. The joke around the company is that they cut funding to order tissues and other office supplies, but they have no problem funding ridiculous 'training' programs, the latest of which is the 'Slip Simulator' where you strap into a harness and learn how to walk on slippery surfaces...really? They can fund that nonsense, but not conferences where we talk to our customers face-to-face? The company is being led by a bunch of metric-watchers and middle-managers who are completely useless and have no idea what goes on at a technical level underneath of them. As an engineer at this company, my business unit has 7 layers of management before something gets to the CEO. Granted, this is a global company, but when the CEO specifically mentions that he sees great things ahead for the company coming out of your group, you can expect that he only sees $$ signs and has never once talked to that group individually. Salaries are also extremely noncompetitive and HR refuses to do any sort of salary compensation. Since people are leaving, it's also very easy to become pigeonholed and stuck in your job without gaining experience.26

Decent salary and there are a select few people who are great to work for and with. The salary is not worth the daily torment.
Upper management ignores reality but then expects everyone else to come up with a solution to the mess they create. High performers continually have more and more work piled on them until they can no longer perform. Poor performance is ignored and their work is piled onto the high performers. Also you have all the responsibility but no authority. Frequent stealth layoffs.16
