    I have been working at Westinghouse full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Nuclear Experience, has global connections and covers the main elements of the Nuclear Life Cycle. Given a sound career with opportunities to develop.

    Cons

    Can be confused, causes work when not necessary. Not very efficient in process and procedures and not always understanding of global cultural differences.

    Advice to Management

    Reduce bureaucracy. Not a one size fits all. Recognise the benefits of process improvements are not always from centralised work functions.

    I have been working at Westinghouse full-time

    Pros

    I have found Westinghouse to be a good company to work for. Benefits are reasonable, the work is challenging and often abundant, and colleagues are competent, intelligent people. The experience gained is valuable.

    Cons

    The downsides I feel have been rooted in misguided or perhaps short-sighted management.

    Pros

    Slow Steady Environment, fairly safe in the UK and sheltered from the Americans... for now.

    Cons

    Terrible management. Executive management even worse. Losing good people on a daily basis. Terms and conditions are being eroded and the organisation is failing.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the new transformation team. Get rid of the current senior management waste less time and money on nuclear safety advocate rubbish and focus on core business.
