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
Lead Financial Analyst (Current Employee) – Columbia, SC – June 29, 2015
Westinghouse is a good place to work. They offer top of the market compensation for the Columbia, SC area. Unfortunately all roads lead to (or at least run through) Cranberry Township, PA. If you're not willing to move there for career advancement you're pretty much admitting that you don't want to be promoted.
Insurance coverage, retirement benefits, interesting topics of work
No trainings/ development opportunity for non-engineers, Reorganizations every 12-18 months
Nuclear Fuel Division - Lead Business Analyst (Former Employee) – Columbia, SC – May 5, 2016
People are just waiting for the ax to fall. After speaking with a few people I know that are still working there, the work is overwhelming, people getting other jobs and leaving. Management not replacing workers which creates more work for others.
Manager, Maintenance and Materials (Current Employee) – Newington, NH – May 28, 2015
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.
Good salary and benefits, pension, tuition reimburement
High workload/lean staffing, mediocre accountability
Principal Supplier Quality Assessment Engineer (Former Employee) – cranberry twp, pa – April 29, 2016
Westinghouse is struggling financially and the moral is terrible due to the fact that any day could be your last day. The management is quite incompetent throughout the entire company but especially at the mid level.
Team Coordinator/Manager Backup (Current Employee) – Columbia, SC – January 26, 2016
A typical day at work includes starting the day with a huddle meeting. In the huddle we discuss safety, production plans, training, and much more. My coworkers and I are very team oriented. We work well together to meet daily production plans. The most enjoyable part of the job is that no day is the same. Each day presents a new challenge and opportunity to learn and grow.
Construction Manager (Current Employee) – Charlotte, NC – April 12, 2016
I don't think Westinghouse is capable of completing the 4 Nuclear Power plants in the US. Their skills in Engineering, Procurement, and Construction is lacking. Simply stating- they don't know what they don't know.
Control Engineer Contract (Former Employee) – Newington, NH – April 22, 2016
Westinghouse is an ok company, I would say very middle of the road. with the usual politics to deal with. It is the kind of place you can settle in and ride out your career if you can do the same thing for 20 years....
Senior Project Manager (Current Employee) – Cranberry Township, PA – September 9, 2015
My position manages projects ranging from software development, software integration, to infrastructure and security. The company is in the nuclear power industry which is highly regulated. We are a global company which has to provide nuclear power services across multiple countries dealing with a variety of cultures and regulations. Delivering IT projects in this environment is challenging and rewarding.

Process and Procedure Based Culture with Strict Adherence
Principal Hardware and Test Engineer (Former Employee) – Warrendale, PA – January 13, 2016
As a Principal Engineer I was responsible for overseeing design, implementation, review, and approval of hardware, systems, and testing documentation daily both in a cubicle/office setting, as well as manufacturing/production environment.
The quality department management is terrible. The managers should in no way be "leading" others as they have the personalities of a stapler. rest of the company may be ok but just avoid quality. You get treated bad and work terrible hours.
