    Pros

    Great company that truly care about its employees. Promotes from within first thing. Worldwide and many US locations so ability to travel. Surrounded by hard-working and inspiring people.

    Cons

    Not a very "fun" cultural atmosphere. Would prefer a little more camaraderie between employees. This can be improved upon in the future.

    Advice to Management

    Has a very good outlook for the company and holds to the company's values. There is a lot of room for advancement from within the company. Management is full of very intelligent people who work hard. Maybe remember that work isn't everything.

    Pros

    wish i could think of them anymore.....remodeled office area , vacation time, 10 holidays, 401k, a few really good bosses and some awesome colleagues if you can find them and stick to them.

    Cons

    Work life balance is a joke unless you are a new employee. they only want to hire young college kids from the top ten. they give them outrageous benefits that all the long time workers can't get or have just earned. the review process is a joke. you could score great but get nothing because your direct boss doesn't have a say in it. the company works on the fear system. they keep laying off people with experience, the executive staff at MG and Chicago are never happy and want everyone to be afraid of them. the job changes constantly depending on the mood swings of Senior Management. It is all about them making their goals. If you fail to make their goals for them you better start moving on.

    Advice to Management

    Value your experienced employees. Stop brining in the new kids with the same salaries and better benefits. Realize we don't have time for all the meetings about more meetings if you want to make your goals. trust us to do our jobs and stop thinking of new improved ways to do it every month...

    Pros

    There have been some important acquisitions that positions Crane as big player in its industry.

    Cons

    There is a work overload on every department and management is only worry about the bottom line

    Advice to Management

    The model is unsustainable, when the economy and the job market recovers there will be an exodus of employees and the cost of retraining will be a burden on those who stay, placing the company in an endless cycle of employee turnovers and training that will affect their precious bottom line.

    Pros

    good people to work with in production but the middle and upper management are the worse people to deal with that I have ever seen.

    Cons

    worked in engineering for 5 years and recently a new "director" took over for the electronics group and as always he has his favorites and craps on everyone else. unfortunately he really doesn't care about anything besides himself and those few that suck up to him. the ethics in the engineering dept. have gone down the drain also in giving the customers bad data and just letting anything go out the door. now that they are closeing the doors on this place they will be keeping a "call center" open for all the customer complaints that will be coming in from the bad parts that have made it out the door in the past couple years.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of Bob Tavares and the whole electronics group they are a mess and a losing battle

    Pros

    - Management is receptive to change - Work-life balance - Good work environment - Strong support from colleagues

    Cons

    - Management lacks big vision or does not share with employees - Lot of effort is put to just maintain status quo.

    Advice to Management

    1) Build a strong plan to integrate acquired companies or it will end up eroding value. 2) Have a great vision so that people feel proud of working for Crane.
