Going down hill
Engineer (Current Employee) –  Cranberry Township, PAOctober 1, 2015
I haven't spoken to my manager in over a month outside of business meetings. I have never met my director. I only met the vice president because he thanked me for working on another project. These people are directly responsible for your raises yet don't care about you in the least. You will often be confused who is actually in charge as your manager is just a middle man for someone above them. The CEO is trying to right the ship but everyone in the middle is working on their own personal goals and not the companies.

Your coworkers at Westinghouse will be the best part. A good team makes it worth coming to work.

Expect to be overloaded with procedures that don't actually tell you how to do your job. Everyone dislikes them but not one is willing to learn a new procedure to make it better.
Pros
On site gym, pension if you were there before the cut off.
Cons
Horrible raises, no feedback system, no clear direction

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.

big company to many politics...to bad
Supervisor Gary Winter (Former Employee) –  Mostly Florida and parts of the USAAugust 17, 2015
I loved that company except for the politics that happened a lot...don't much care for that type of atmosphere and stayed away as long as i could from the office and their management styles which i did because i was a field supervisor but if you want to survive in a fortune 500 company you have to learn to play the game and who's ego needs caressing lol...sad but sooo true.

Unless you plan on working 60+ hours a weeks, getting paid for 40 hours, all the while being held under HR level of pay for your position, I don't recommend working here.

Productive work place, based on safety and quaility
Furnace Operator (Former Employee) –  Columbia, South CarolinaJuly 19, 2015
Overall a typical day with this company involves a steady pace of work, which in all helps the work day move along faster. The entire company is based off of safety, quality, and production. Being that the job is in the nuclear field profesionalism, honesty, and integrity are a must. Each day offered a new learning experience based off of adapting to problems with machineray and quality allowing all employees to learn and think. The managment changed signifcantly throughout my employment and seemed to have been based off of production and not experience. The hardest part of the job was the fact that not eveyone seemed to work together and the most enjpyable part was being able to think, and problem solve.
Pros
great opportunity for over time
Cons
short breaks, treated as a number and not a person, required to work weeks on end without time off, being held accountable for others actions, managment changed often and the person put in charge was not necessarily quailified for the title

Consultant Review
HR/ESS/MSS/Forms (Former Employee) –  Pittsburgh, PAJuly 16, 2015
The overall experience at Westinghouse was not pleasant. The upper management down to lower management had no concept of project methodology to implement a basic IT project.

No governance, change management or responsibility was ever shown to in the project.

The overall work environment as a consultant was dismal as there was no mutual respect give and the treatment was abusive and condensing.
Cons
remote work most of the time

Enjoyed my time but ready to move on
Lead Financial Analyst (Current Employee) –  Columbia, SCJune 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.
Pros
Insurance coverage, retirement benefits, interesting topics of work
Cons
No trainings/ development opportunity for non-engineers, Reorganizations every 12-18 months

Good, secure place to work
Manager, Maintenance and Materials (Current Employee) –  Newington, NHMay 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.
Pros
Good salary and benefits, pension, tuition reimburement
Cons
High workload/lean staffing, mediocre accountability
