    Pros

    Travel to different nuclear power plants both domestic and international. Meat new people at every job site and cultures.

    Cons

    Make promises that they never keep. Lies to employees way too often. Always seems to change job descriptions to better suit themselves instead of staying within the job outline.

    Advice to Management

    Stop lying. Tell those things they think we want to hear to keep us from leaving and going to their competition.

    I have been working at Crane Co. as a contractor

    Pros

    There have been some important acquisitions that positions Crane as big player in its industry.

    Cons

    There is a work overload on every department and management is only worry about the bottom line

    Advice to Management

    The model is unsustainable, when the economy and the job market recovers there will be an exodus of employees and the cost of retraining will be a burden on those who stay, placing the company in an endless cycle of employee turnovers and training that will affect their precious bottom line.

    I worked at Crane Co. full-time

    Pros

    If you are interested in more of a 9 to 5 job rather than a long term career with lots of potential, you might be able to find a position that is a good fit

    Cons

    Not much opportunity for advancement. Constant cost cutting to make the stock price go up without concern for the long term. No investment in intellectual capital. HR is not your friend if you are having problems with management.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees more

    Pros

    My manager was stellar. HR does a good job trying to identify and promote good talent but some departments still try to keep their A players for themselves. Top management (ie Fast, Mitchell, duPont, etc.) are second to none; ethical, honest, hardworking, and have the company's best interests at heart. Overall, a great place to work with small pockets of localized bad behavior but you'd find that everywhere. They're doing a great job at ferreting those out and working to resolve the issues.

    Cons

    Slow moving and slow to embrace anything outside the norm; working from home, telecommuting, etc. Despite much talk of initiatives to promote from within even if a stretch for the candidate, it didn't seem to happen much.

    Advice to Management

    While strides are being made in communication to the field and sharing the wealth during up times while top management tightens the belt during the lean times, management needs to remember that everything they do is watched and scrutinized. The corporate jet is a major pain point in the field and while it may be necessary, we don't feel that Mr. Fast's explanations were sufficient when asked. Many felt like questions surrounding the perq were brushed off. In years when we were charged with cutting costs and every expenditure had to be justified down to the dollar, it seems that cutting out something as costly as the jet would have saved ten fold the costs we were struggling to cut over the course of two years.
