      Great people. Strong community focus. Innovative company. Fair pay. Great training programs. Did I say Great people? Yes, they are. Designs are innovative.

      HR is very 1980s. HR works FOR the company, and doesn't care about the employees. Many old school employees that don't like to change.

      Pros

      - Company is growing at a rapid pace and is the leader in electric forklifts - very profitable company - great product to represent and support - incredible opportunity and advancement - branches across the US and all over the world for relocation opportunities - always in need of great people with the right skills - ton of money to be made as a sales person - company is not afraid to invest money to build its product line - a private company that can respond quickly to major issues vs slower acting larger corporations - school reimbursement program - newer branches and great atmosphere to work in - career security - many employees with serious tenure - does not like to layoff during poor economic times (but will reduce pay) - does the right things for the customers

      Cons

      - IT support is terrible - corporate office is in a location most will not relocate to, harder to hire the right talent - behind on training in certain areas - no profit sharing or stock options - 401k match below average, in the bottom quarter for companies - too many different programs to use, need to simplify - pay raises not really based on performance and just above cost of living increase - too many take work home, a little overworked due to being short staffed - takes too long to aquire vacation - slow to higher supporting staff

      Pros

      Good pay, good benefits, great people, birthday off as a paid holiday, overtime is available, number one lift truck manufacturer in the United States.

      Cons

      No real cons at Crown. If you don't like factory work, you may not want to work in the plants. There are other career opportunities to pursue in New Bremen, OH since the headquarters is located there.

      Pros

      There is a lot of great people working at Crown. Always encountering new and exciting people. IF you love Overtime, there is a LOT of it here. College reimbursement.

      Cons

      No real chance for advancement. Unless you know people in Plant 2, or higher ranking officials the chance to get a better ranking job. I love seeing a job that requires a Bachelor's degree and experience being filled by someone who has connections but no formal education or experience. It happens quite a bit.
