    I worked at Crane Co.

    Pros

    My manager was stellar. HR does a good job trying to identify and promote good talent but some departments still try to keep their A players for themselves. Top management (ie Fast, Mitchell, duPont, etc.) are second to none; ethical, honest, hardworking, and have the company's best interests at heart. Overall, a great place to work with small pockets of localized bad behavior but you'd find that everywhere. They're doing a great job at ferreting those out and working to resolve the issues.

    Cons

    Slow moving and slow to embrace anything outside the norm; working from home, telecommuting, etc. Despite much talk of initiatives to promote from within even if a stretch for the candidate, it didn't seem to happen much.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    While strides are being made in communication to the field and sharing the wealth during up times while top management tightens the belt during the lean times, management needs to remember that everything they do is watched and scrutinized. The corporate jet is a major pain point in the field and while it may be necessary, we don't feel that Mr. Fast's explanations were sufficient when asked. Many felt like questions surrounding the perq were brushed off. In years when we were charged with cutting costs and every expenditure had to be justified down to the dollar, it seems that cutting out something as costly as the jet would have saved ten fold the costs we were struggling to cut over the course of two years.
