Too bad I had to retire but if I had stayed my pension would have been lessened.
Senior Systems Analyst (Former Employee), Pittsburgh, PASeptember 8, 2014
Pros: great division to work for, initially at the foretront of tele-communications
Cons: senior management was a clique, promoting cronies when so many others were most capable.
The finest place I had the pleasure of working. Too bad the upper management literally destroyed the company with so many bad decisions.

Principal Engineer (Current Employee), Pittsburgh, PASeptember 5, 2014
Once a technology leader, Westinghouse has turned itself into a commodity business where the name of the game is cost cutting. It's a tough business to be in for high potential employees.

Very good company. Some of the managers are technically clueless. Too much micromanagement from the top. Very sophisticated management structure. Overall very good company.

WFCF was a good place to work, however, Westinghouse does not believe that one needs any manfacturing experience to run a manufacturing facility.
EHS and Sustainability Lead (Current Employee), Windsor, CTJanuary 5, 2014
Starts with morning meetings first with Maintenance and Engineering. Then a site meeting with representatives from all group. Both meetings are standup type meetings. Then day to day work and finally a GEMBA walk throughout the facility.

Management varies: During the ABB days the management had very high degree of manufacturing experience. Under Westinghouse – more... WFCF has been run with managers that had little or no manufacturing experience or knowledge.

Determining what needed to be changed at WFCF to meet the hundreds of EPA, OSHA, DOT, etc. regulations.

Learning new skills and working with the engineering, maintenance and shop floor personnel. – less

Technician (Former Employee), Cranberry, PANovember 24, 2013
Pros: salary
Cons: short lunch, poor leadership, cut throat management, horrible performance review structure, useless union, strong nepotism
Great salary, but that's about it... Well, I guess it was a good learning experiece. Learned a lot about the nuclear industry and how not to treat employees in future management opportunities.
Very hard work/life balance. You are a slave. One will devote their life to Westinghouse, only to be let go. Company is going through huge layoffs. Instead of – more... laying employees off, HR and management is trying to find anything they can to fire employees...trying to save money on severance and unemployment. – less
