    I worked at Crane Aerospace & Electronics full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Crane Aerospace & Electronics is a well rounded established OEM supplier of niche type aircraft components. I liked Crane as they are a well balanced company with engineering and manufacturing all onsite.

    Cons

    Perhaps not enough strength of demand in aerospace parts. The components/systems they do supply are not always required by aircraft companies. Consequently, business can be slow, markets may not require their product and employees may not be in demand for employment. Crane has had several layoffs at various periods of time. It would be desirable if Crane had a better and stronger diversified business class of product line to keep employees employed, even when market is slow in a certain product line.

    Advice to Management

    Recommend expanding new business of aerospace product line systems.
