No opinion of CEO

Pros

Provided you are on time, work hard and don't have any issues employment can be tolerated. There is a strong camaraderie among core workers.

Cons

Management heavy, not enough core workers. Young management with little to no experience in dealing with people or managing. Young management with very poor management skills, "power trip" syndrome. Too many required classes for in house training, reduces time for actually doing the job, which you will be written up for not completing both.

Advice to Management

Utilize a training position, side step from management for college graduates with no job experience. The inner core suffers while the newly hired manager/ director matures with on the job training. The money spent on training personnel with no experience would be better spent on hiring personnel with experience.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Stable company, not a lot of turnover, most people have been with the company for 10+ years. Lots of learning opportunities, company paid education benefit and frequent communications from senior managers. Overall a supportive place to work.

    Cons

    HR policies are out-dated. Policies around promotion/transfer are written in conflict with one another. Takes a loud voice to get promoted. Certainly has its "good-old-boy" moments.

    Advice to Management

    Take a hard look at succession planning and the policies surrounding growth within the company. Don't over-promise and under-deliver.

    Pros

    The company has a rich history and feeling of pride in the company. The commitment to safety and operational integrity is inspiring and reassuring. The company treats long-standing employees very well.

    Cons

    It is easy for a loyal but mediocre employees to move up the ranks over the years. As a result, the quality of work is compromised.

    Advice to Management

    The leadership at Crowley needs to invest more in corporate communications. Often, publications, slogans, and messages are composed with awkward phrasing and generally low quality.
