    I have been working at Crane Composites full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Has been stable, decent benefits,

    Cons

    departments stopped working as one goal since departmental manager bonus took over, now each department out for themselves,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    go back to a people caring company any quite with the big departmental manager big bonus. employees bonuses very small so the managers can get them. the employees are the ones doing the work

    I have been working at Crane Composites full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Time off at Christmas - Some of the staff very nice to work with

    Cons

    Too much of an us vs them attitude amoung departments, no room for growth unless you meet certain stipulations and are well liked in the company-unfairness in departments - being talked at instead of with - pay is not where it should be and you cannot make more

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give people a fair shot - don't continue to be dishonest with them and dance around the issues/subjects

    I have been working at Crane Composites full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Decent benefits and good location

    Cons

    Communication from upper management to employee needs improvement. Policies for non exempt workers are completely outrageous and set them up to fail. The bottom line is more important that the employee (who gets the bottom line where it is)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start really working with the pool of talent you have, don't look at age as a reason to make someone retire. Show every employee their worth and be honest about it. You seem to skirt truth a lot.

    I have been working at Crane Composites full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great benefit options
    Get a week+ off at Christmas every year
    Starting just out of college, the salary was good and have gotten raises almost every year.
    Company is strong financially, rarely has layoffs for non-production personnel

    Cons

    Some personnel can be unprofessional and difficult to deal with
    Company is concerned 100% with bottom line, not the employees
    Penalized for using sick time, very strict schedule policies
    Seems to be favoritism sometimes
