Fabrication Mechanic 1 (Current Employee) –  Newington, NH 03801May 22, 2017
Westinghouse is an amazing place to work considering that Internal Components for Nuclear Power Plants is what is manufactured but the management team and system leaves a lot to be desired while leaving a questioning attitude at the longevity of the shop.

Wide range of opportunities to engage in challenging and interesting work.
Program Manager (Former Employee) –  Richland, WAMay 17, 2017
Compensation is competitive with the industry.
In general, a well-educated and professional workforce.
Extended hours are a basic expectation.
Challenges in the future given the financial condition.

Decent workplace but future uncertain
Administrative Assistant/Technician (Current Employee) –  Cranberry, PAMay 11, 2017
I enjoyed working here but with the recent financial crisis the company is experiencing I'm not confident I'll still be employed at the end of the year. Career advancement opportunities are almost non-existent at this point and salary increases are frozen for this year. That will possibly continue for years to come.
Pros
Nice facility and meaningful work
Cons
Company financial crisis

Sorry place to be unless you have a friend in upper managment.
OPERATOR (Former Employee) –  Ogden, UTMay 7, 2017
Could have been a good place to retire, but the company started to make bad decisions, bad investments and as a result many, many lawsuits. Cut benefits like retirement. Reduced vacation. Very few raises, and when they happen they are small. Plenty of safety procedures and safety equipment though.
Pros
Excellent place to hone skills or go to school
Cons
Poor management, favoriteism.

Good Place to Work
Engineer (Current Employee) –  Jenkinsville, SCMay 2, 2017
Westinghouse takes good care of their employees...the benefits are good, and employees are treated respectfully.

They have a habit of promoting smart people to managerial positions, but those people are not necessarily fit to manage others.
Pros
Respectful work environment.
Cons
Some management are not good with people.

Not good

Pay is bad, with no chance of increase. Most employees work very little, company may go bankrupt. Non competitive pay compared to rest of industry, most people stay because they have to.
Pros
Nice facilities
Cons
no change of a raise

Lead Financial Analyst (Current Employee) –  Pittsburgh, PAApril 27, 2017
Company had great growth at one point. Salary is up to par with the market, and the pension an added bonus.
Management can improve in their leadership skills.

too much stress to stay
Fabricator/Welder (Current Employee) –  New HampshireApril 23, 2017
Newington site has had lot's of conflicts with new contracts of components. The management team tells a different story every day. The co-workers are very talented. If the bankruptcy goes down bad then they will be in jeopardy of losing their talented people. This is a very complex type of job. The experience i learned in fabricating their parts is invaluable. I'm worried about our future as many of the older folks have retired. We have lost a good amount of tribal knowledge. This concerns me for the future. The recent loss of severance pay is concerning. This makes it obvious that they have no intentions of keeping their best and brightest. Very concerned about our future without experience and talent. Low wages and gutted benefits make Westinghouse just another company to work for. It's a good stepping stone for your future but I don't recommend staying.
Pros
good coworkers ok pay some OT
Cons
gutted benefits no raises no pension no severance pay

Fabrication Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Newington, NHApril 21, 2017
with the bankruptcy of Westinghouse looming over the company, I am not confident with job security. There is the possibility of the Newington plant that I work at could be shut down and liquidated.
Pros
plenty of overtime available
Cons
bankruptcy

Production Planner (Former Employee) –  Warrendale, PAApril 20, 2017
I have been at Westinghouse for 6 years and I have enjoyed it for the most part. The employees are great and most of the managers are easy to work with but there is a lot of old school ways of thinking that are bogging down the system.

Manager (Current Employee) –  Columbia, SCApril 18, 2017
The nuclear industry is highly regulated. This affects the culture and makes seemingly simple things often quite difficult to accomplish.

Most of the people are nice to work with and want what is best for the company.

Avoid at all cost
Manager (Former Employee) –  Cranberry, PAApril 13, 2017
I learned how toxic leadership trickles down and ruins moral and a once great company. The CEO walks the halls in shame and rightfully so for empowering and defending those who ruined the company. The executives blatantly lie about business affairs and are morally bankrupt. There is no accountability coupled with retribution, back stabbing, and no trust. A terrible place to work and should be avoided.
Pros
A pay check
Cons
Everything

Could be a great place to work ...
Schedule Manager (Former Employee) –  Cranberry, PAApril 11, 2017
Never have I experienced such inept management culture. Loved the work, loved the people I worked with. Really wanted to be a part of next generation nuclear power. Unfortunately, the company has run itself into the ground, filing for bankruptcy.
