I have been working at Crane Aerospace & Electronics full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

you will learn a lot of skills like lean manufacturing and strategy deployment even though they do not use it correctly.

Cons

Expected to work long hours with out any thanks or appreciation.
Abusive tyrannical senior management
Staff at the director level offer little to no guidance or assistance, just lots or scolding.
Salaries are well below fair market value and the bonus structure has impossible targets to meet
The senior management is not measured to the same targets they set for the plants which ensures they are bonus-ed.
A system is in place to develop talent from with in, the system isn't followed through with and they will not spend money on higher education.
The medical insurance has been significantly scaled back and dumps the costs on the backs of the employees.
Old technology that people are moving away from resulting in continuous layoffs and shrinking markets.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Live up to RT Crane's resolution don't just spout it off at every meeting and pretend to believe it, we all can see through it. Also start leading by example.

    Pros

    Potential for learning new things. I said potential. It doesn't mean they will let you learn them.

    Cons

    Communication is nil.
    Expect to work long hours and get low pay.
    No positive feedback
    Plenty of negative feedback.
    They treat you like some peon robot.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too many chiefs that float along and not enough Indians. People leave and they don't replace. Just expect the remaining ones to work harder.

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

    I have been working at Crane Aerospace & Electronics full-time for more than 10 years

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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!
