I have been working at Crane Aerospace & Electronics full-time
Great company. Lots of hard working and caring people. Lots of opportunities to show you are smart and driven if you are interested in upward mobility. Overall highly recommend; you won't find a better company to work for.
Communication between different functional departments could be improved. Lack of alignment on goals and priorities is counter-productive.
Advice to Management
Take on initiatives to improve interdepartmental communication and better align goals so all team members work together efficiently.
I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Crane Aerospace & Electronics (Burbank, CA).
I had two phone interviews and one on-site interview with two managers and one peer. The interview questions were fair and mostly were about your academic and working history. They will pop technical questions as you explain certain responsibilities in your work history, so there weren't a separate section just to get technical. You also get a tour of the Burbank facility. Their systems test lab is world class, very organized, clean and very modern. The manufacturing equipment don't look very advanced however, but it's normal in many industrial companies.
However, I had a very negative experience after the interview. It took Crane more than 2 weeks to follow up with their decision, but when they called, the quoted ball park salary figure changed. I tried negotiating like every job, and received an upsetting call directly from the hiring manager and he said "it sounded as if it was all about the money" and threatened to withdraw the offer. I don't think I was professionally handled, and I wasn't about to join such a team at a valuation below my own. Therefore I kept looking.
