I have been working at Crane Aerospace & Electronics full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Every other Friday off. People are nice.

Cons

Turnover is incredibly high. 4 Engineering Managers in 2012! Compensation is getting better but the salaries are lower than market. Salaries are determined by corporate and handcuffs the local office.

Advice to Management

There needs to be communication within leadership and set some structure so that there is a system of accountability.

    you will learn a lot of skills like lean manufacturing and strategy deployment even though they do not use it correctly.

    Cons

    Expected to work long hours with out any thanks or appreciation.
    Abusive tyrannical senior management
    Staff at the director level offer little to no guidance or assistance, just lots or scolding.
    Salaries are well below fair market value and the bonus structure has impossible targets to meet
    The senior management is not measured to the same targets they set for the plants which ensures they are bonus-ed.
    A system is in place to develop talent from with in, the system isn't followed through with and they will not spend money on higher education.
    The medical insurance has been significantly scaled back and dumps the costs on the backs of the employees.
    Old technology that people are moving away from resulting in continuous layoffs and shrinking markets.

    Advice to Management

    Live up to RT Crane's resolution don't just spout it off at every meeting and pretend to believe it, we all can see through it. Also start leading by example.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Crane Aerospace & Electronics full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Potential for learning new things. I said potential. It doesn't mean they will let you learn them.

    Cons

    Communication is nil.
    Expect to work long hours and get low pay.
    No positive feedback
    Plenty of negative feedback.
    They treat you like some peon robot.

    Advice to Management

    Too many chiefs that float along and not enough Indians. People leave and they don't replace. Just expect the remaining ones to work harder.
