    Awful Managers to Work For Business Model that is unYeilding

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

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

    ConsManagers 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 Senior ManagementListen 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.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Satisfying experience as an intern

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Stamford, CT

    ProsCrane has very friendly staff at their headquarters. Everyone is willing to help you out and make sure you learn.

    ConsSome might find their location a bit unappealing since they are based in Stamford and this requires a commute from New York City for a lot of people.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Disconnect in ideology and actuality

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Stamford, CT

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

    ConsBelow 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.
