Good place to work prior to Chapter 11 proceedings.
Principal Engineer (Current Employee) – Cranberry Township, PA – December 3, 2017
Good place to work prior to Chapter 11 proceedings. Personnel are mostly great to work with, though communication skills and "silos" remain commonplace unless you actively seek to work around them or remove them.
Principal Electrical Engineer (Former Employee) – Cranberry Township, PA – November 21, 2017
Company is going through difficulties which ended in their second bankruptcy. As such gradual and secret layoffs has begun over two years ago. They waist a lot of money on what they employ many of them called "project managers" who has no or little technical knowledge.
Unqualified managers and analysts in the lab. There are different rules for different people. Jobs and promotions are given based on personal relationships and private, personal information is not protected.
Engineer (Current Employee) – Cranberry, PA – November 12, 2017
Westinghouse has been in Chapter 11 bankruptcy for multiple months and has not provided any incentive for employees (except for unnamed few who are given bonuses) to stay. Morale has been abysmal and management has not been supportive of employees who are understandably wondering if they will be laid off unexpectedly. Would not recommend joining this company.
Principal Engineer (Current Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – November 7, 2017
This place is awful. Don't even think about working here, no matter what they promise you. Eventually, they'll take it all away. Just awful!
I've worked here on and off over a 30 year period. It's never been a good place to work. It has gotten much worse since they declared bankruptcy. The executives care about nothing other than their own personal fortunes.
Manager (Former Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – November 1, 2017
Westinghouse was a great company to work for when I first started working their. Over time, the business declined, selling off assets to stay in business. The nuclear business took a bad turn when the long time CEO retired and Westinghouse brought in a former GE executive to "fix" us. Terrible results followed and W is now bankrupt.
Manager (Current Employee) – Charlotte, NC – October 26, 2017
The management retains staff that are incompetent. The same people who cost the company $7 Billion kept their jobs while thousands of professionals lost theirs. There are no promotions, no wage increases, and very little way to move up. The company laid off people on FMLA. The work/life balance is null. You typically average 65 hour work weeks. They "give" you every other Friday off, however, good luck on not actually working your off Friday. Management doesn't listen, nor do they care about employee concerns.
Wages are above average
if you compute wages with time worked, you're better off elsewhere for a smaller salary
RCP TECH (Current Employee) – Work for BHI as a contractor with Westinghouse – October 23, 2017
On the RCP jobs, it is always a great outage. Everyone is friendly and work good together. Time goes by fast when you work with a group that everyone gets along and helps each other out if someone needs help.
Loved my job, people were great to work with, very busy workload, fast paced, daily shifting of priorities, benefits and pay were decent. work place culture was fine. Bankruptcy is wearing on people, always looking over their shoulders.
Management has been and continues to be the demise of this corporation. They are unqualified and promote and higher more unqualified people to trust disregarding those with the expertise throughout the corporation keeping a viscous cycle of managerial incompetence inplace.
