    I worked at Crane Co. as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    - Compensation was good!
    - you are expected to perform from day 1

    Cons

    - Management not receptive to new ideas.
    - Interns are treated more as clerks to complete excel work for managers.
    - Actual job responsibilities differed from those mentioned during selection process.
    - Boast of open culture and open door policies, but manager rarely follow it with interns.
    - No real company culture, more a combination of many organizations under one umbrella.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Set the goals and expectation for the interns in advance, and stick to those goals.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Crane Co. full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Co-workers were very good and tried their best in a very limiting environment

    Cons

    Managers condenscending, unprofessional, and don't want to get involved. No pay increases for exceptional work because managers take all the credit. The company values are somemthing to live by..not used as a facade to keep shortcomings prevalent and a matter of SOP. Turnover is extremely high and they wonder why! Crane doesn't listen to their customers and find decreasing market share...slowly but surely Crane will become a non-factor in several business segments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to employees. Business model should be malleable and change with the opportunities. Too much bickering, back-stabbing by all managers is a loss of energy, motivation, and enthusiasm. Crane is tired, past it's time, and lots of double talking by managers and no follow-up.

    I worked at Crane Co. as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Crane has very friendly staff at their headquarters. Everyone is willing to help you out and make sure you learn.

    Cons

    Some might find their location a bit unappealing since they are based in Stamford and this requires a commute from New York City for a lot of people.
