    HR & Management very poor. Pay was low and company doesn't care about individuals. Most employee incentives & benefits continue to decline. Advancement is almost unheard of. Benefits continued to decline.

    Pros

    Lots of older experienced people

    I worked at TECO-Westinghouse full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Nothing about this place is positive.

    Cons

    Toxic work environment. Clear favoritism/ clique from upper management and CFO “Do what I tell you to do and there won’t be problems” type of mentality. No clear support from management. They will tell you “we pay you in experience”. You have to clock in and out every time you step away. All of their computers and software is 10-15 years old. Low pay for the amount of work given.

    I worked at TECO-Westinghouse full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Nothing about this place is a positive.

    Cons

    - Everything from hardware to software is 10 to 15 years old. There is nothing new about TECO's offices. - No structure guidance from upper management. - Clear preferential treatment/ clique environment from the CFO and Management. - Toxic work environment. - "Do what I tell you" type of mentality, even if it is clearly outside your scope of work. - Classic "bait and switch" they will pitch you this idea that they pay you in experience. - Lack of leadership. - Super low moral throughout the office. - Really bad break rooms. Please don't get bamboozled and save yourself from this place. It has 1 star from a lot of other people for a reason. Listen to them. It is not a coincidence this place is rated low and don't approve of its leadership.

    I worked at TECO-Westinghouse full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Benefits - 401(k) - Location of building (don't have to deal with traffic) Bonuses when company make a profit (and the 'math' works out)

    Cons

    Zero formal training. Raises are hard to come by. HR really isn't an HR dept. They are all accountants that were given the role of HR when that whole dept . left. But it had been known for some time that you were kinda on your own if you had any concerns. There isn't a lot of staying power. The number of years of experience is low but the age of the employees is high which says a lot. Software systems are archaic. The facility is dated and very gloomy. There really isn't' a sense of pride in the company from anyone who works there. When times get tough, a lot of people stick around hoping to get laid off to collect severance. But most are afraid to leave. Perhaps that there is very little accountability. Not sure what the draw is. But usually there is a big exodus after bonuses come out. Corporate in Taiwan is completely out of touch on how to motivate US workers. You get the impression that you should feel privileged to work for them. Also, they have stripped any decision making power from the people in the US. EVERYTHING must go through the Taiwanese. Be careful. There is no training and the systems here are very old. Ambition is low. If you're fresh out of school, you can get trapped here without developing any useable skills elsewhere. If you are looking for a place to perch through retirement. This may be it. That's what most of the people over 50 are doing.

    I worked at TECO-Westinghouse full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The only good thing about this place is that there are many very nice people at the bottom of the organization. The healthcare package is average (not bad) even though they make it seem like it's so amazing.

    Cons

    I could write a book about the cons at TECO-Westinghouse, but I'll focus on the most egregious. No career advancement or development. No structured training whatsoever. Be prepared to never get a raise, but do expect additional duties and promotions without any financial compensation. Everyone in the organization knows that the only way to increase your pay is to job hop between departments. The HR Department is an extension of the Accounting Department meaning they don't care or even pretend to care about the employees. All they care about is how much you cost the company. The Department is managed by people who don't have proper HR backgrounds (former accountants) so they fundamentally don't understand their role in the organization. Everyone starting out in their career leaves so turnover is high. The only people that stay are the ones near retirement age, which is most of the company workforce. Most privately admit that they want to leave, but can't afford to start over at their age. Almost all of them encouraged me to leave and find something better because they didn't want me to make the mistake they made which I found very sad.

    I worked at TECO-Westinghouse

    Co-workers, there is still some of that old factory feeling amongst the factory employees.

    Entire place. Outdated systems, un qualified employees in management and executive positions. No training, growth development, or employee appreciation.

    I have been working at TECO-Westinghouse full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Most of my fellow employees are nice to work with and helpful if you have questions. Once hired on, job security is great (other than if there is a lay-off). Health insurance is very affordable and a very good plan. Partially matching of 401k.

    Cons

    Virtually no training. Advancement requirements are nonexistent. Basically, the only way to advance is to apply for a different job in the organization or to stay with the company for more than 10 years. Management has little understanding of how to manage their employees. Software is outdated. Management fights almost any change. From management down to employees, there is little to no accountability. This means people continue in jobs they are unfit to fill. Pay is some of the lowest in the industry.
