    Pros

    All the pros disappeared with the sale of this company to Crane. This used to be such a wonderful place to work

    Cons

    Treated like little children by new management. No trust even though the MEI side of the business was kicking Crane's tail before the merger. It's the Crane way or the highway, and there have been plenty of Directors and VP's escorted out of the building after a "disagreement" with new management. MEI'ers leaving in droves.

    Advice to Management

    too late, it's already been ruined.

    Pros

    Fantastic culture, outstanding benefits, very competitive pay, colleagues who are very intelligent and technically skilled and overall an enjoyable environment. Great communication, ethical and straight forward - treat us like partners of the business.

    Cons

    Some favoritism and politics like all companies have. Could benefit from more rigor and process.

    Pros

    Need to still be determined. Most of the people will continue to operate with the same philosophy. It is actually scary that Crane Management is communicating to the previous MEI associates that they are customer focused. If MEI is allowed to keep their customer focus as well as ability make decisions, then this company will be OK. If Crane imposes their culture on the MEI way, then this company will go down the in history like other companies that Crane has acquired.

    Cons

    Reduction in benefits immediately puts the MEI associates in a bad position. Does Crane not realize that MEI Payment and VMS business has kicked their behind for the last 5-8 years? Why go to a business model that actually doesn't work instead of one that was proven to be the market leader?

    Advice to Management

    Why waste the time, the fact that Max Mitchell gets down into the weeds shows that there is not any ability to develop strong executive level capabilities that have decision making capabilities.

    Pros

    Opportunity for technical professional growth for people who work hard. The business supports its people with competitive salaries and benefits.

    Cons

    The politics and favoritism wear on you after a while.

    Advice to Management

    It would be helpful to deal more in facts and less by emotion. Hold people more accountable and get more comfortable with confrontation and difficult situations.

    Pros

    Strong community culture with exceptional Engineering, Sales, and HR departments. Work hard to consistently manufactor and deliver innovative and quality products. Senior management has proven record for profitability and stability. Compensation and Benefits always rank in top 10 percentile of marketplace.

    Cons

    People rarely leave before retirement because of the superior culture, product line, and benefits. With such as small attrition rate, it is very difficult to move up within the organization.
