    Pros

    The people who work at the Crane Lynnwood Site are great! Friendly, knowledgeable, and once you prove your reputation, there is room to move around, up or down, to where you want to be.

    Cons

    Salary and other compensation is not up with today's standards.

    Advice to Management

    Make employees feel like they are important and the things they are doing are important.

    Pros

    Great culture. Supply chain team is super fun to work with especially if you're based out of Redmond.

    Cons

    Internal structure is lacking because of the merger that recently happened with Crane Aerospace & Crane Electronics. You might show up to work to find your entire team is at the Lynnwood site.

    Advice to Management

    Work on rebuilding the internal structure

    Challenging work environment with opportunities for broad experience Decent corporate values Less political than most companies Competitive pay

    Pros

    Great people who know what they're doing. Good processes. Crane really embraces Lean methodologies. And roles & responsibilities are well defined. Good benefits. Great cafeteria!

    Cons

    Corporate management is located at a different site and seemed out of touch with the Lynnwood site. The product is not cutting edge or particularly interesting. Same designs again and again made for some boring work. Dealing with the other sites was frustrating because their processes were different

    Advice to Management

    Take the best processes from each site and standardize. Look at expanding the product line to keep the work interesting.
