    I have been working at Crane Aerospace & Electronics full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great place to work overall. Strong and supportive upper management team that is engaged with the site in west caldwell There are plenty of challenges and improvement opportunities in the business; if you are a driven individual who wants to improve performance and metrics you can really stand out here. Site management team is very flexible, fair, reasonable, etc. and it is easy to enjoy working here. Could talent promotion / recognition here. You get a lot of responsibility with most jobs.

    Cons

    Some managers are not deeply engaged in day-to-day activities of employees (some may see this as a positive). Sometimes there is not enough management and structure, such that initiatives are not fully supported / you can feel dis coordination amongst staff members in what they are trying to achieve. There are a few select employees that are not fully engaged / self-motivated and there is little consequence for that.

    Advice to Management

    Overall, not much needs to change. Would recommend a bit more discipline and closer monitoring of employees.

    I have been working at Crane Aerospace & Electronics full-time

    Pros

    Interesting work, great people, good work-life balance. Stress free, laid back. Honestly best place I've worked so far, I really like the job and the company.

    Cons

    Company is a little old-school. Some policies are a bit outdated. This "isn't google" there is no free lunch, (not even coffee!), std. vaca policy, etc. Personally, I don't really care but some people could.

    Advice to Management

    Attract more young people by revisiting some of the policies and staying competative.

    Pros

    The 9/80 hour work schedule. Company Culture. I really enjoy my time there. It is a very rewarding experience.

    Cons

    Employee turn over is high. Sometimes, it can be difficult because the work may be boring. But there is not much to complain about.

    Advice to Management

    I think they should give the bottom line workers a better chance for promotion. Other than that there is not much to be said

    Pros

    Fantastic place to work! The company truly values diversity in their employees and values each employee's unique skill sets. Managers provide excellent guidance and training and are very friendly and take the time out to get to know everyone and their goals. A lot of opportunities for experience and professional growth. The company highly encourages an open, friendly, and collaborative environment among employees and company customers.

    Cons

    When employees leave for vacation and something goes wrong in their area, there is normally no other person who can troubleshoot in their absence
