    I worked at Crane Co. full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Learned a ton from the business system. Enjoyed my co-workers - a real misery loves company type of environment.

    Cons

    Way too much bureaucracy. I was a business unit executive at one of their sites. The company only cares about the here and now, makes future plans but then discards at the first sign of adversity. Doesn't care about customers in the least bit, only cares about what they can grab right now. Growth strategy is last in company values and usually is just thrown out the door. Over burdened with reporting up to corporate, daily walk thrus, weekly reports, monthly reports, endless action plans. The beatings will continue until moral improves type of environment. Everything Crane touches it shrinks the sales.

    Advice to Management

    Look at the turnover rate of 15%+. Most people do not last over 2 years in management. How does this service the customer? Stop drinking the koolaid of the Crane Business System. Don't call harvesting a growth strategy.

    Pros

    Flexible schedule. Company Car corporate credit card (could also be Con cause of points)

    Cons

    Disconnected management that shows a lack of respect to the field teams. Decisions are not based on stated company values. Management does not trust employees.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up! When you tell people to do their jobs you get workers. When you trust them to do their job you get leaders.

    Pros

    Great atmosphere. Coworkers are great, very helpful. If you succeed, they succeed. Work is not easy, but not hard. Pay is great for type of work you actually do. Benefits are good. Fairly easy to move up, if you are willing to put the work in. Schedule is great for someone with a family. Normal work schedule is 4/10 hour shifts with the occasional12 hour shift.

    Cons

    Work can be monotonous. Too many temps. They have adopted the "puppies and rainbows" outlook. Work load can be alot sometimes.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your veteran employees. Look at things through your employees on the floor eyes.

    Environment is a disgrace. People suck. Processes suck. You have been warned. Stay far away. I promise you can do much better working for a sanitation department.
