    I have been working at John Crane full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    They are trying to improve employee moral with activities, but seems to little to late.

    Cons

    Employees are not appreciated. They started an activity team to get employees together and involved. Bowling, Ping-Pong, and soon softball. But, it just seems like a cover up. There are many changes going on. Spending close to probably millions on moving machine and equipment around from one end of the building to another. Mass Layoffs “which they told everyone they were opportunities not layoffs”, they took away tuition reimbursement opportunity without telling anyone. There is no opportunity to move up.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate the changes going on and why. Just don't put up stupid board saying home of new saw room. Why is this being done for what reason? why did you cancel employee reimbursement program.

    I have been working at John Crane full-time

    Pros

    SOME good people to work with.

    Cons

    There is no opportunity for career growth or movement; unless you are one of managements pets then you are promoted and some to new made up positions. Nobody seems to want this place to be better. Nobody does there job, just waits for someone else to handle it. Managers run around putting out the same fire over and over instead of fixing the issue. Blame and shame is the typical management style. Don't even have a current CEO just an acting one until replacement is found.

    Advice to Management

    They are beyond help.

    I have been working at John Crane full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    A lot of great people who work very hard. Generally the environment is laid back and managers are understanding and willing to work around work-life conflicts.

    Cons

    The pay is below average for similar jobs in the area. The organization is very flat with limited room for career growth. Very little training is provided and there is little to no transparency as to what qualifications are required to meet the next level of the position and what the salary ranges are for each position title.

    Advice to Management

    Employees need more opportunities to develop their careers and move vertically rather than performing the same job for years on end. The salary ranges and requirements for reaching the next level of a position should be made known to the employees.
