Your manager and/or assigned work group define the work atmosphere.
PRINCIPAL ENGINEER (Former Employee) –  Rock Hill, SCOctober 10, 2018
I was located in a remote office so advancement was limited.
Work assignments could sometimes have gaps depending on your background and the workload in that group/department in headquarters.
Pros
My manager was very straightforward and therefore easy to work for, and he was also very flexible up to corporate policy.
Cons
Currently going through restructuring and are having labor force reductions.

I would recommend this company to people.

I really liked my job, shift, crew, supervisor and, manager. Great money and, benefits. Wish I would have been trained better than I was. Asked for help after being on short term disability for 6 weeks after losing my brother and, instead of getting help I made a couple mistakes in procedures and, lost my job.
Pros

lack of training

Bad company to work for
Engineering Manager (Former Employee) –  Charlotte, NCSeptember 30, 2018
The business units have no control of there own destiny. Human resources runs the show with the attorneys looking over their shoulder. A very poor managed company. Could care less about their employees. Proof: fact that they went bankrupt.
Pros
Paid fairly good and benefits were good.
Cons
Did not know if you would have a job every time you went to work another day.

Global Company
Senior Project Engineer (Current Employee) –  Pittsburgh, PASeptember 24, 2018
Weatinghouse of a global supplier or nuclear engineering services and equipment. The is complex interconnection between organizations and recently frequent reorganization/restructuring. Quite common there is a conflict of priorities among these organization and a lack of responsibility in maintaining commitments. Ermergany issue management desperately requires improvement and track with the thre aspect of business management.

Failing company
Advanced Project Manager, Major Programs (Former Employee) –  Pittsburgh, PASeptember 22, 2018
Management is in-bread thus all they know are bad practices that have been killing Westinghouse for at least 20 years. For example, I have worked there 9+ years and there has been 9 reorganizations. The blind are leading the blind.
Pros
salary, workers
Cons
bad management, customer of Westinghouse saw that it demands much but gives very little.

Confusing Workplace
Nuclear Parts Technician (Current Employee) –  New Stanton, PASeptember 21, 2018
The workload is manageable and there is a team that tries to provide occasional events to boost moral and keep people engaged with each other. Events include an annual golf outing, local sports team day, and small sports tournaments that are held on the company grounds.

Management isn't always visible and seems more occupied with meetings than with making sure everyone is in a good position to do their job.

Most of the rewards (financial and non financial) are given to the office personnel as they are considered more professional than the technicians.
Pros
daylight, manageable workload
Cons
Recent bankruptcy, unclear future, lack of ethnic diversity

Quality Control
Quality Control Inspector (Code 9) (Current Employee) –  Cranberry, PASeptember 19, 2018
-On a typical day I was responsible for incoming, in-process and final inspections.
-Management still has not grown with the times and has managed to put the company in bankruptcy.
-The workplace culture says it is about balance between work and personal, however when life throws a curve ball at one then they have an excuse to target you and demote you instead of assisting.
-The most enjoyable part of my job is having the opportunity to learn more about the Nuclear Industry
Pros
excellent pay
Cons
little opportunity to advance and poor management

Sinking Ship (Bankruptcy and New Owners)
Systems Engineer (Former Employee) –  Cranberry townshipSeptember 19, 2018
Going down hill fast! Claim to be about core fundamentals but they don't take care of the employees only SVPs & above! Have doubled the amount of SVPs since bankruptcy to ensure golden parachutes for upper management while taking raises away from regular employees & having tons of layoffs!

Business as usual
Quality Engineer (Current Employee) –  Columbia, SCSeptember 18, 2018
Busy days for some with about one slow day per month. A lot of "on-call" work. I was fortunate to have a manager that wanted his employees to continue education and training but that is not the norm.
Cons
Benefits have dropped off significantly over the last 5 years

Not many good things left to say
Project Manager (Current Employee) –  Cranberry Township, PASeptember 16, 2018
Salary and benefits are good, but it doesn't go much farther than that. Mismanagement from 10+ years ago continues today, and is what resulted in the bankruptcy filing in 2017. Yes the Nuclear Industry in general has been struggling since 2011, but a lot of Westinghouse's problems stem from poorly negotiated contracts, and reluctance to make course corrections early on when there was still time.
Pros
Good salary for the area. Challenging work
Cons
Management doesn't know how to lead. Too many cooks in the kitchen.

Terrible Environment to work in
Manager (Current Employee) –  SCSeptember 5, 2018
The people are good until you get to the director level then they tend to turn into liars who are looking out only for their jobs. It's sad that a once great company has been ruined by greed and fear.
Pros
people and pay
Cons
everything else

Great when headed by a good manager
Code 12 (Current Employee) –  Cranberry Township, PASeptember 2, 2018
When good management rotates in then things get fun, productive and you fee like you're wanted and that makes you actually want to come to work.

BUT, since they do not punish or get rid of managers, when a bad one comes through the moral drops and makes for a very unfriendly place to work.

Ebb & flow.
Pros
relaxed and engaging at times
Cons
Poor management circle jerk, repetitive at times
