    I worked at Crane Aerospace & Electronics full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Crane is a stable company with a long history.

    Cons

    Salary side, a lot of hours is the expectation.
    The business focus is if it's good, move forward, focusing on where improvement is needed. I understand the idea, but recognition of positives can go a long way with morale.

    Advice to Management

    Consider more mentoring and coaching of employee that have been there a while. Recent focus has been to coach and mentor the young ones just out of school, but anyone looking to move forward would really appreciate and needs the coach/mentor relationship.

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

    Pros

    All my co workers are awesome and easy to get along with. Also the environment is not heavy handed and supervisors are very accommodating to one's needs.

    Cons

    Occasionally the workload can get extremely heavy and you might find yourself under a lot of pressure from multiple sources, but nothing a little overtime can't fix.

    Advice to Management

    My only advice to management right now would be to make more of an effort to hire good employees from being temps and do more employee bonding events to really build up the cohesion and boost morale

    I have been working at Crane Aerospace & Electronics full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Interesting work which you can see realized in the external world. Work with mostly experienced technical professionals who work hard and take their work seriously.

    Cons

    Company pays lip service in its commitment to be employee oriented. Annual performance reviews seem to be more about providing HR with basis for its actions than anything else. Benefits tend to decrease slightly every year, although this may not be atypical in the current employment climate. Biggest problem is that company is very slow to hire when it takes on substantial amounts of new work.

    Advice to Management

    Staffing requirements should be addressed in parallel with the award of new multi-year projects. PMs have responsibility for outcomes but do not get commensurate authority. No apparent consequences when there is a long history of individuals remaining for only a short time working for specific managers.

    Pros

    Friendly Work Environment, room to work on your own projects

    Cons

    Few projects assigned to interns and there was a lot of down time

    Advice to Management

    Have a more developed intern program with more projects to broaden knowledge
