Engineer (Current Employee) – Cranberry, PA – November 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.
Principal Engineer (Current Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – November 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.
Manager (Former Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – November 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.
Manager (Current Employee) – Charlotte, NC – October 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.
Wages are above average
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 Westinghouse – October 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.
Loved my job, people were great to work with, very busy workload, fast paced, daily shifting of priorities, benefits and pay were decent. work place culture was fine. Bankruptcy is wearing on people, always looking over their shoulders.
Management has been and continues to be the demise of this corporation. They are unqualified and promote and higher more unqualified people to trust disregarding those with the expertise throughout the corporation keeping a viscous cycle of managerial incompetence inplace.
Normally worked 8 hour days, five days a week. I had training in Six Sigma techniques and how they applied to my scheduling position and to individuals on the shop floor. I was working with a team of schedulers, maintenance leads, mechanics, floor personnel implementing Work Management.
ADMINISTRATIVE AIDE (Former Employee) – Cranberry, PA – October 13, 2017
Overall upper management does not care about employees only the bottom line, purely money driven. The only positive was that the pay was very good but in the end not worth it because of all the mental, emotional and physical stress you felt every single day.
Westinghouse is in bankruptcy due to poor, if not corrupt, management.
Engineering Technician (Former Employee) – Cranberry, PA – October 12, 2017
Company performed major layoffs, froze pensions, reduced severance packages, and eliminated merit increases due to bankruptcy reorganization; however, it is seeking millions of dollars in salary adjustments and bonuses for top level management. It is currently a toxic environment.
The position at Westinghouse was through a temp agency. I enjoyed working for the engineering department. People were extremely nice but again, it has been awhile so I do not feel comfortable reviewing this company.
Projects (Former Employee) – Jenkinsville, SC – October 11, 2017
Like working for the federal Govt. A lot of good people ruined there. Bureaucratic mess with layers of management. No one knows how to run a project. Run by Engineering and Finance. Engineering never is done, and they lost record amounts of money. Go figure
Senior Project Manager (Former Employee) – Cranberry, PA – October 10, 2017
Overall, the people were good to work with. Unfortunately, there were poor management decisions accompanied with a declining market for nuclear power which has made this a challenging time to work here. If they can reinvent themselves, the company could return to a growth company.
