Generallly good place to work except lately (6.3 Billion losses)
Supplier Quality Oversight Engineer (Current Employee) – Cranberry, PA – February 20, 2017
I enjoy my job and perform it well. The days typically go fast , I enjoy working with my team and face challenges daily, the fun is coming together as a team and deciding on the best way to resolve them. I have had 9 Managers in 10 years, it sucks having to prove yourself over and over again and the promotions usually go to the cronies and the same people. Upper management personnel are in it for themselves and rarely even recognize the talented people that work here. The hardest part of working for WEC is seeing those less experienced and qualified continue to move up, and upper management not pursuing or really taking advantage of the talent that they have.
Manager at Columbia Fuel Facility (Former Employee) – Columbia, SC – February 8, 2017
I raised several concerns. My boss disagreed with my concerns or did not want to address. He eliminated my job to ensure my silence. His nicknames is the silent asassin. I was afraid to speak up for fear of losing my severance.
E. Tech (Former Employee) – Lake Bluff, IL – January 9, 2017
Worked for this company as E. Tech for 4 years, and was never hired permanently. Once management changed, everything changed. And was laid off on return from the outage I was on. New management hired former co-workers from his last job and laid off my ENTIRE training class. The pay is good, but there is no guarantee you can make a career with the layoffs and poor leadership in management. Basically if you get in good with management, youll have a job for life.
Electrical Engineering Technician (Former Employee) – New Stanton, PA – August 28, 2016
As things change as it relates to our economy, so does the workplace. An extremely competitive work environment, which a lot of times created a combative work environment. If an environment like that fits one's personality, then it is a wonder place to work, if it does not fit one's personality, it could create a lot of stresses.
Manager, Technology and Product Development (Current Employee) – Lake Bluff, IL – January 9, 2017
With the current management issues, the future of this company does not seem as bright as it did 5 years ago. With the missteps in acquisitions and inability to improve issues with under performing employees, the company is not on the upward trajectory it once was.
Global teams of talented engineers
Reduction in employee benefits, poor senior management
Nuclear Refueler (Current Employee) – Madison, PA – October 22, 2016
The last 14 years have been awesome. In the last year, however the management has not been willing to work with it's employees and have very unreasonable expectiations with respect to the amount of work they are taking on. This company's management is setting itself up for disaster, and I do not want to be a part of a losing team.
Good pay, lots of travel, lots of opportunities.
Cutting hard on benefits, especially for exempt employees.
Chemical Operator (Current Employee) – Ogden, UT – January 29, 2017
Good people to work with. Culture revolves around safety. The work is good and benefits are good. The pay starts out a little low and takes awhile to advance, but overall it's a good company to work for.
Rod Inspector (Former Employee) – Hopkins, SC – February 8, 2017
A typical day at work would be to make sure the nuclear rods were clean of foreign materials. You will meet some great people their willing to help when needed. Hands on training is great. the management is great the work environment is great never had a dull moment. the hardest part of the job will be stopping the machines to fix a problem that can slow production down tremendously enjoyed working with my team had a great team the best I ever had take note you are working in nuclear plant but good new they have nurses available incase of accident and they monitor you.
Gain new skills, great people, great enviorment third shift is the best for college students.
I was sequestered from CB&I by Westinghouse and I wouldn't recommend working for this company to anyone as they not only lied to me about when I would receive my raise or the fact that I would even get a raise considering I was finally told a day after the deadline for communication that I wouldn't be receiving a raise at all after I had been promised it for months.
Principal Engineer/Project Manager (Former Employee) – Madison, PA – July 31, 2016
Management tends to be out of touch with day to day processes. Coworkers are knowledgeable and team oriented. Work is interesting and challenging. Education opportunities are very good. IT and cyber security is surprisingly poor for a company owned by Toshiba. Travel policy and per-diems are generous. In the field materials and tools are top notch. Safety culture fully enforced. Work location is very rural.
Maintenance (Former Employee) – Ogden, UT – June 17, 2016
Management is not qualified for the jobs they have. Working environment is very hostile and there is no accountability. Company benefits have gotten worse, pay increase system is horrible but management refuses to change it. While working there two employees were set up and fired.
Decent Pay For Utah
Hostile Work Environment, Unqualified Managment, No Accountability
High passed environment, never monotonous work, and always something to learn
Legal Assistant (Current Employee) – Cranberry, PA – June 14, 2016
It is a stable company trying to grow internationally. Government laws and politics come hand in hand and create many obstacles for Westinghouse which intern allows us to grow intellectually. Due to the changes in higher management stability with employees seems to be an issue therefore putting pressures on others to complete the tasks at hand.
Most enlighten part of the job is that I get to work closely with the General Senior council
Due to the changes in higher management stability with employees seems to be an issue
Principal Engineer (Current Employee) – Township of Cranberry, PA – February 7, 2017
Westinghouse has an excellent environment to practice engineering skills, but is a difficult company to advance within without strong backing of supervisors. Work/life balance can be challenging for some functions.
Principal Project Engineer (Current Employee) – Cranberry, PA – January 21, 2017
I used to love working for Westinghouse. Being a part of the nuclear power industry is a passion of mine, and the people I work with are truly amazing. However, our current executive team has really lost the trust of their employees and with an imminent multi billion dollar write off, it is time to look elsewhere.
Principal Engineer (Current Employee) – PA – January 4, 2017
No one is ever held accountable is this company. Nothing is on schedule and cost over runs are always created by never doing it right the first time. Upper management points fingers when they should look in the mirror.
Had a great career that includes typical ups and downs
Manager of Business Operations (Current Employee) – Newington, NH – August 25, 2016
Was provided excellent growth opportunities. The company has changed over the past 15+ years and most recently has had to make difficult choices to respond to market conditions. It is still a great place to work and they service an important industry so it is possible to have a fulfilling career.
