Good experience

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Good to see they got rid of some bad apples in Management/supervision. Definitely need more work in Canada. Would work for them again now that there have been changes to the field management/supervision.

Great People

I worked with BWXT previously and came back as a contract employee. People are great to work with. The management is very flexible and allows some flexibility.

Great Place

Excellent place to work. Really great people, business is very structured as required to be a Nuclear supplier, you need to be cut out mentally to work in this industry.

Non existent training

They only make the weld lab available during day shift. They say ‘if you want it bad enough you’ll make time’. They make weld tests harder for current employees on job posting than for people outside the company. Any ambition is met with road blocks from management.

Nothing really positive about BWXT Cambridge

I have worked as a QC Inspector Level C at BWXT and tendered my resignation recently after 3 years. I wouldn't recommend investing much in this company career-wise and mentally! Extreme micromanagement by unappreciative management and supervisors who are mostly unfit and incompetent or still stuck in the 80s mindset of running a business. I don't mean to put this as daily harassment but be ready to get blamed for someone else's wrongdoing or be thrown underneath the bus routinely. Do not expect to have any career advancement based on fair opportunities and qualifications unless you have some connections and expect to be working in a stressful workplace. BWXT Cambridge is a steppingstone at best especially for the younger locals.

The paystub is your only motivation

Incompetent and unprofessional managers in the offices and the shop make you want to reconsider your employment with BWXT Cambridge. People without proper qualifications carry titles such as engineer or production manager or quality control/assurance managers. Quality is not being taken seriously in production of nuclear equipment. Union employees are mostly fun and friendly except certain known individuals that you have to stay away from. The HR is useless and unsupportive. In general a very stressful and toxic work environment.

Nuclear grade mess

If you are an experienced professional with decades of experience in the power generation industry (including nuclear) but you are person with a physical handicap you will be discriminated against and refused a job. They are that ignorant !!!

Understaffed

FACT: It was understaffed at the time I worked there. HR interfered too much with the onboarding/offboarding of employees with regards to the I.T. procedures. A very fast paced environment where everything needs to get done yesterday mentality, makes for a stressful environment. Unrealistic expectations from some management but mostly the HR department. Imaging of computers was fickle most days as the PXE boot would fail more than half the time. Plant has electrical issues. The process to get anything done is VERY SLOW as you need several peoples approval before you purchase anything or proceed with certain procedures.

HR should be investigated

They discriminate against people with physical "disabilities". HR is incompetent, inexperienced and mean spirited. They have a hiring blitz on now..... beware this company - no room for advancement and you are treated like a number only.

Pros

Cons

Big boys club

You are basically st the mercy of your managers. If you are not an butt kisser you are no one. The people can be friendly and helpful. They can also be cruel and watch you struggle as entertainment. I found the lack of management skills on budget matters seemed to become our fault when things went sideways.

Pros

Pay is decent

Cons

Fear of layoff always.

Current Employee - Senior Manager

Poor management that lack experience. Leadership has no strategic vision. Very much an old boys club. Total focus on profit and no focus on people. Extremely poor moral and depressing culture. Other than the pay and security of steady work for a while, not a great place to work.

Pros

Good pay

Cons
