    I worked at Crane Co. full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Co-workers were very good and tried their best in a very limiting environment

    Cons

    Managers condenscending, unprofessional, and don't want to get involved. No pay increases for exceptional work because managers take all the credit. The company values are somemthing to live by..not used as a facade to keep shortcomings prevalent and a matter of SOP. Turnover is extremely high and they wonder why! Crane doesn't listen to their customers and find decreasing market share...slowly but surely Crane will become a non-factor in several business segments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to employees. Business model should be malleable and change with the opportunities. Too much bickering, back-stabbing by all managers is a loss of energy, motivation, and enthusiasm. Crane is tired, past it's time, and lots of double talking by managers and no follow-up.

    I worked at Crane Co.

    Pros

    Strong compensation package. Willingness to invest in the business and business improvment. Intelligent workforce and management. Well documented policies. Global opportunities.

    Cons

    Below average relocation policy. Rigid view of career progression. Limited training and development support. Little to no personal connection between the organization and employees (at all levels). No real company culture, more a combination of many organizations under one umbrella. Limited ability to move between companies.

    I worked at Crane Co.

    Pros

    Good salary and benefits, Great co-workers who are always ready and willing to help one another. Great products.

    Cons

    Still an "Old Boys Club" even though management tries to deny it. Management can be disrespectful and lack management skills. No Work/Life balance. No chance of advancement. Stressful, authoritative structure. Too many managers not enough workers. Most employees are dissatisfied and waiting for the opportunity to leave when the economy improves.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to employees. Set realistic goals. Show some respect.

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO
