Unless you plan on working 60+ hours a weeks, getting paid for 40 hours, all the while being held under HR level of pay for your position, I don't recommend working here.

Productive work place, based on safety and quaility
Furnace Operator (Former Employee), Columbia, South CarolinaJuly 19, 2015
Pros: great opportunity for over time
Cons: short breaks, treated as a number and not a person, required to work weeks on end without time off, being held accountable for others actions, managment changed often and the person put in charge was not necessarily quailified for the title
Overall a typical day with this company involves a steady pace of work, which in all helps the work day move along faster. The entire company is based off of safety, quality, and production. Being that the job is in the nuclear field profesionalism, honesty, and integrity are a must. Each day offered a new learning experience based off of adapting to problems with machineray and quality allowing all employees to learn and think. The managment changed signifcantly throughout my employment and seemed to have been based off of production and not experience. The hardest part of the job was the fact that not eveyone seemed to work together and the most enjpyable part was being able to think, and problem solve.

Good, secure place to work
Manager, Maintenance and Materials (Current Employee), Newington, NHMay 28, 2015
Pros: Good salary and benefits, pension, tuition reimburement
Cons: High workload/lean staffing, mediocre accountability
Westinghouse is a great employer. They demand a strong work ethic and a focus on first time quality, completion of the tasks on time, at or under budget and done safely.

It is incumbent upon the employee, however, to ensure a safe work/family balance as most salary employees wear more than one hat in an effort to keep the organization lean and financially competitive. Westinghouse will not budget your work/family time to account for that and it is easy to become overloaded/overworked.

Intense nuclear power plant design and project implementation
Principal Electrical Engineer (Former Employee), New Stanton, PAApril 30, 2015
Pros: New and multiple locations.
Cons: Upper Management
Great place to work. Management is being revamped, however moral and advancement are low.

There exists a great work ethic amongst the more senoir people. The new hires (too many of them) have little concept of exactly what is expected of them, nor the overall implications of careless or incomplete work.

Westinghouse - Not So Great
Project Controls Engineer (Current Employee), Waynesboro, GAApril 20, 2015
Job progression and career paths are vague here at best. Even advanced education won't get you very far. There are no development programs or defined career tracks within the company.

The company has been mismanaged, sells products that it has no complete design for and seems to think that it can rely on having few competitors to turn a profit.

Business is slow since nuclear isn't a very attractive energy source right now and it is expensive. Most projects have been late and over spent.

The company is not diverse or inclusive at all. If you are a minority, you will be tolerated at best, but most likely be overlooked for advancement.

The company is slow to change and not innovative at all. It will take a long time to bring it back to its original glory.

If you have an engineering background and high standards, check out other firms first.

TECO-Westinghouse Motor Company
Mechanical Engineer (Current Employee), Round Rock, TXApril 9, 2015
This is for TECO-Westinghouse Motor Company, not other Westinghouse places.

People are great to work with. It has a sense of family atmosphere. People really carry for each other. People from engineers to shop workers are really approachable. Many people have 10+ yrs of experience.

Fast-paced environment comitted to quality and safety.
Project Specialist (Current Employee), Cranberry, PAMarch 28, 2015
In my current position attention to detail is essential, critical project milestones are priority and handling multiple jobs simultaneously is the norm.

Throughout my career I have acted as “the hub” of information: communicating and coordinating efforts across multiple groups and organizations with an emphasis on quality and teamwork.

Good place to work with great benefits and pay rates
Recruiting Coordinator, HR-Talent Acquisition (Current Employee), Township of Cranberry, PAMarch 27, 2015
Pros: Free parking, great pay and benefits, access to many amenities on campus
Cons: Too far from home to last until retirement from the company
Westinghouse is a great place to work with great benefits and pay rates. Transition training could be better. Work atmosphere is good. A lot of changes have taken place which has bogged down employees with extra workload in most areas of business. I would stay but since moving from Monroeville to Cranberry Township it has caused my work/home life balance to be a bit off and I would like to be closer to home.
