    After the acquisition....

    Director (Current Employee)

    ProsNeed 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.

    ConsReduction 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 Senior ManagementWhy 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.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Opportunity for technical professional growth

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

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

    ConsThe politics and favoritism wear on you after a while.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIt 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.

    Great Company with Good People, Good Products, and Good Benefits

    Technical Support Manager (Current Employee) West Chester, PA

    ProsStrong 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.

    ConsPeople 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.

    Poor communication, training and environment

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) West Chester, PA

    ProsGood benefits
    Smells good all the time
    Has a gym with decent equipment
    on site cafeteria
    nice security guards up front

    ConsNo understanding of providing benefits to the customer
    Communication is nil
    no standards in place for almost anything

    Advice to Senior ManagementSpend some time developing procedures, standards and a way of communicating things to people. Everyone seems to be in mtgs but so little information seems to actually get transferred.

    Far from what was expected from a Mars Inc affiliate

    Commercial (Former Employee) Santo Tomás, Querétaro (Mexico)

    ProsThe biggest pro was the opportunity to be tranferred for working directly for Mars Inc.
    This was reflected in a nice work environment, open doors policy, good benefits as compared to similar companies, and overall positive atmosphere.

    ConsThe great issue was the Mexico plant, located in Queretaro, where management was not alligned with Mars Inc phylosophy, and always had a hidden agenda to reduce benefits and compensation to the personnel with any excuse.
    This situation worsened when the company was sold by Mars Inc and management was much more transparent on the managerial style, privilging people for the personal relationship with the high management, and not based on personal merit or professional preparation.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake a closer look at how things are being managed in Mexico, since local management is sacrificing good elements to maintain the status quo, and avoiding growth of Coordinator and Junior Management levels, which could make evident that better people could be managing the company.

    Open office is not for everyone.

    Engineer (Former Employee)

    ProsPay and benefits are excellent.
    On site cafeteria.
    Plenty of parking space.
    Work life balance depends on the project that your assigned to, but in general is good.
    Free coffee.

    ConsHeating and cooling of the office isn't the best.
    The office is structured as an open office environment.
    No individual has an office. Everyone sits out in the open.
    Noise levels can be very distracting and there is no privacy.
    Multiple members of human resources can act in a very unprofessional manner.
    The open office environment doesn't lend to a friendly place.

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagers should enforce company policy.
    Dead weight in the company should not just be addressed during layoffs.
    New associates should be introduced around to people in their department.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
