Pros

Most of the people that "work" there are great people.
Good location right off the freeway and close to bus routes.

Cons

Poor opinionated management and HR staff. HR = higher-up relations definitely not hard-workers relations.
Management lays people off who do not deserve to be laid off. Do not have just cause.
FYI, some those managers have since left the company themselves! (Is actually a Pros)
Work people to near death and to the point of wanting to and seeking other companies to work for.
Have no regard for tenure and long time dedication to the company.
No to poor wage increases.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get real! Focus on problems, not people. HR do not just believe what a biased manager has to say, look at facts and see what co-workers have to say about someone before allowing a biased manager to let someone good go. Work on HUMAN RELATIONS and facts and not biased opinions.

    Pros

    There are alot of hardworking people who really care about what they do and who are dedicated to doing a good job!

    Cons

    The definition of productivity seems to be to work 6 days a week! There are never any positive comments that come from above....everything is always negative.....even in a good month. Metrics are Red or not Red. No comments are ever made about metrics that are not Red....no ataboy...no Good Job!!! HR is worthless....there are many open positions not being filled....also management doesn't seem to realize that PEOPLE are needed to complete the work. The amount of work that needs to be completed is not appreciated so the plant is hugely understaffed. Not enough planners, buyers material handlers, engineers to do just the basic blocking & tackling that needs to be done....hence.....work 6 days a week and feel exhuasted all the time.....never a comment about work life balance.....Oh yeah..almost forgot.....work our asses off for a 1% raise that was delayed in coming.....in a record profit year for Crane!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start replacing yourselves. Never seen a more incompentent bunch. Can't see beyond a 3 month quarter. No regard for employees.

    Pros

    It was a short commute.

    Cons

    Too many to share. Office politics, lousy supervisors, lean to the starvation side. Company didn't care about the employees only the bottom dollar. Vividly remember one company meeting in which the upper management stated we had a record growth year but no raises would be given! It was like don't let the door hit you in the butt on the way out. Mass exodus of quality workers. Miserable place to work with nasty people in my department.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of your antiquated close-minded, old school ideas and treat your employees like you care (even if you don't fake it) instead of like a bunch of chained monkeys.
