    I have been working at CRANE ChemPharma & Energy full-time

    Pros

    Everyone you will work with is generally pleasant, and things are very neutral and work focused. Pays well.

    Cons

    Work can pile up fast, sometimes it can get really stressful because people can be pushy if they need something from you. There is also a very "clique-y" office environment, and desks in the office are in 4-person super cubes with no privacy.

    Advice to Management

    Make the office environment more relaxed and comfortable. Provide workers their own desk areas instead of the four-person super cubes--these become very distracting at times. Provide opportunity for employees and their families to connect with each other outside of work more often.

    I worked at CRANE ChemPharma & Energy full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    -Easy work. If you are competent and have some prior work experience you will be above most of the company in terms of skills. -Multinational company.

    Cons

    -Horrible culture. Crane advertises strong adherence to its values which are about treating people fairly and doing business open and honestly. However, the actual culture is by far the most dishonest and deceptive I have worked at out of 5 companies I have worked at in my career. Advertising of the "Crane Values" is borderline illegal since Crane flaunts these values to attract employees and customers but does nothing...

    Advice to Management

    Stop lying. Bring in quality people. Actually make a good faith effort to do what you claim. It isn't that hard to have an ethical culture and be capable of engineering new products...you just need the right people.

    I worked at CRANE ChemPharma & Energy

    Pros

    Lots of challenges Opportunity to utilize many different skill sets Always something to improve

    Cons

    Management communication is lacking in continuity and clarity Manufacturing firm applying Lean methodology to IT staff with antiquated systems No IT budget "Everything is a priority" attitude

    Advice to Management

    Work on relieving tension in the work environment by protecting your employees, and pushing back on the business. IT is seen as a money hole, and not a value add.

    I worked at CRANE ChemPharma & Energy full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Salary is really good. As a young professional you can learn how it does not work!

    Cons

    Badest mid. management that you can recognize. Maximun commitment by realizing almost nothing what have been committed. The most important thing in this company is the reporting. As long as you can report the right thing at the right time you will make career! The Crane culture is only an idea not more. There is NO culture!

    Advice to Management

    Be even more transparent to ALL employees! Be honest(!) and do not lie by presenting the principle of R.T. Crane! Change your HR to ensure you will get good qualified managers! Be brave to invest in high educated engineers and lower level employees (they DO the work)
