    I have been working at Crane Co. full-time (more than 5 years)

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I have been working at Crane Co.

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
