    I worked at Crane Electronics full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Crane Electronics is like many companies... the benefits are OK, they have a great policy that allows you to work a 9/80 schedule which means you should not work every other Friday (unless your workload requires it). There are may people that have been there for 20+ years which proves that it can be a place to work long term.

    Cons

    The reason may people have been there for so long is that the technology being used is aging and they have not developed skills and knowledge that would allow them to move into positions elsewhere. The company has been in a time bubble for many years. They appears to be unwilling to invest in training to grow their employees. The wages are below the mean and the process to get raises makes it difficult to reward more than just a few. The management team appears to range ranges from very good to poor and support to employees reflects the managers clout in the organization. The hiring process can be full of a great deal of selling, so do your research and ask a good deal of questions.

    Advice to Management

    Think hard about how to grow the business AND your human assets.

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

    Pros

    Dress code, weekday schedule, meeting new customers, more relaxed environment

    Cons

    definitely the pay, the man who runs the operation, rarely any raises, management thinks they are better than anyone else who works there

    Advice to Management

    ditch the cocky attitudes and give more raises if you want to keep people

  3. "do what management says but not what they do."

    Pros

    There are no Pros for this company

    Cons

    We worked for the worst leadership team ever assembled under one roof. They were all a bunch of "yes" mgr.s with no plan of action. The CFO does not even know how to spell RF but yet runs a high tech. company. The management have their own set of rules and regulations for their own click and everyone below them is just hired help. When management screws up they always have a scape goat ready to be sacrificed. The only bonuses are for people at the top. The bonuses never filter down.

    Advice to Management

    We can't believe you hired that idiot (President of Electronics) the first time but when you hired him the second time we knew top management was just plain stupid. Now that he has totally ruined your defense business and many other's careers you let him resign?? vs being fired like he should have been. RT Crane must be rolling in his grave.
