Crane Aerospace is generally a good company; however expect to work hard with little reward.

Pros

Good vacation benefits. International company provides opportunity for travel.

Cons

Work/life balance is not good. Company is very profitable, but runs it like it's going out of business. Over leveraged staff with little reward.

Advice to Management

Protect your investment in People. Don't treat them like they're a commodity that can be bought and sold at any time. Reward those that are working hard for the company!

    Pros

    At Crane in Redmond, generally good co-workers in most departments. Many long term employees who can teach you the "Crane Way".
    Plenty of opportunities to pick up responsibilities after co-workers resign.

    Cons

    Management doesn't show appreciation for the employees. It's entirely focused on cutting cost and sending profit to Crane corporate in Connecticut. When the economy was tough, employees had little choice but to put up with it.
    Turnover is increasing. With the improving economy, good employees are more able to leave for better places to work. As a result, the concentration of mediocre to poor talent is going up
    There aren't signs that mgmt will remedy the problems. It reinforces the perception that the well being of the rank and file isn't a concern..

    Advice to Management

    Recognize your employees are your most valuable asset, and start acting accordingly. If the economy continues to improve, and if it becomes an "employee market" (as versus an "employer market"), Crane will lose talent. And will have a very hard time attracting replacement talent. You must make changes or your reputation as a place to work will become a bigger albatross around your neck. Don't let that happen. Turn it around. Performance appraisals and merit increases are coming in the next few months. Don't be cheap with the merit pool. Ditch the failed experiment with "forced ranking", good companies have abandoned it.
