Bankruptcy made company effect morale.

Westinghouse work critic
U.T. Technician (Former Employee) –  Blairsville, PADecember 4, 2017
I enjoyed my job at Westinghouse, but the work atmosphere was

very poor. I was down sized, and could have downgraded, however I

don't feel I should have to after all the schooling and work I put into

getting the position. The work culture and ethics were also lacking,

and made for a scared and cut throat work place.

Okay place to work
Principal Electrical Engineer (Former Employee) –  Cranberry Township, PANovember 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.

Many good employees that are not valued.
Senior Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  Cranberry Township, PANovember 20, 2017
Up until the last year, Westinghouse was a fabulous place to work. Because of Toshiba's accounting scandal and bad upper management decisions, Westinghouse had to lay off thousands of employees.
Pros
Great Corporate office surroundings, great cafateria, and very safety conscience.
Cons
Poor management.

Business is in bankruptcy and future of company uncertain.
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  Cranberry, PANovember 20, 2017
Seven years ago Westinghouse was a great company to work for. Unfortunately today they are in bankruptcy and top management is attempting to turn the business around.

My last year there was stressful due to uncertainty with job security, and I was laid off with half of the administrative assistants in the company.

The future of the business is uncertain and many still employed there that I know are uneasy about their future.

Company in crisis
Engineer (Current Employee) –  Cranberry, PANovember 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.
Pros
Good facilities, fair compensation
Cons
low morale, poor management, sinking ship

Stay Away
Principal Engineer (Current Employee) –  Pittsburgh, PANovember 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.
Pros
None
Cons

Business in Decline
Manager (Former Employee) –  Pittsburgh, PANovember 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.

Don't work here
Manager (Current Employee) –  Charlotte, NCOctober 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.
Pros
Wages are above average
Cons
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 WestinghouseOctober 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.
