Intelligent, Experienced Employees who care about their work vs. numerous layers of management not anywhere near being on the same page

Principal Engineer (Current Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – March 13, 2017
Westinghouse is essentially bankrupt. Good operating plant business, but no clear future with low gas prices driven by shale production. Management has made poor decisions and has communicated issues poorly with its employees.
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.
Westinghouse is mainly focused on nuclear power work including engineering, fuel, modifications, and others. the company has new reactor design that it is trying to market and currently two Westinghouse plants are being built in USA

The Legal Department is made up of a collegial group of lawyers and related professionals. All are hard-working and supportive of each other and the group. The work is challenging and can be fast-paced at times.
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 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.
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.
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.
Intern (Former Employee) – Cranberry, PA – January 28, 2017
Working as an intern in the Layout department was very satisfying. I learned how civilian reactors were laid out. We interfaced with several departments to ensure all hardware in the plant will get installed in the plant with no interference.
