    I have been working at MEI full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    All the pros disappeared with the sale of this company to Crane. This used to be such a wonderful place to work

    Cons

    Treated like little children by new management. No trust even though the MEI side of the business was kicking Crane's tail before the merger. It's the Crane way or the highway, and there have been plenty of Directors and VP's escorted out of the building after a "disagreement" with new management. MEI'ers leaving in droves.

    Advice to Management

    too late, it's already been ruined.

    Pros

    Fantastic culture, outstanding benefits, very competitive pay, colleagues who are very intelligent and technically skilled and overall an enjoyable environment. Great communication, ethical and straight forward - treat us like partners of the business.

    Some favoritism and politics like all companies have. Could benefit from more rigor and process.

    Strong community culture with exceptional Engineering, Sales, and HR departments. Work hard to consistently manufactor and deliver innovative and quality products. Senior management has proven record for profitability and stability. Compensation and Benefits always rank in top 10 percentile of marketplace.

    People rarely leave before retirement because of the superior culture, product line, and benefits. With such as small attrition rate, it is very difficult to move up within the organization.

    Good benefits
    Smells good all the time

    on site cafeteria
    nice security guards up front

    No understanding of providing benefits to the customer
    Communication is nil
    no standards in place for almost anything

    Advice to Management

    Spend some time developing procedures, standards and a way of communicating things to people. Everyone seems to be in mtgs but so little information seems to actually get transferred.
