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

    Pros

    Decent place to learn how to be a part of a department with no oversight or metrics and in turn never have to be responsible for outcomes or performance.

    Cons

    Extremely disorganized and constant turnover from upper management, severe red tap makes processing anything a complete nightmare, and too many departments involved in others business (lack of defined scope for departments).

    I worked at John Crane full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Wonderful staff level colleagues, highly innovative and committed, great products, some good team working.

    Cons

    Senior level upper management with autocratic leadership style, hire and fire, short term cost focused with poor people skills and a distinct lack of empathy, no progression or development and terrible behaviours especially in Operations. Not trustworthy, building empires, not committed to people, not attractive to anyone wanting any level of flexible working bordering on discrimination. Disorganised, changeable and not inclusive. Generally not kind, think carefully before you engage, there are better employers.

    I have been working at John Crane

    Pros

    Very competitive pay to start.

    Cons

    Job quickly shifted into high stress and more volume. Employees forced to increase work with no increase in man power. "Lean" being used as excuse to work current workers into the ground with no pay increase while suck ups do nothing. Actually, they laugh all the way to the bank, so that's something! Great place to retire if you can make your mind a void and just complete your workday. Benefits are good, however upper management has premier level tier over production employees. At least in dental area. Great company but be warned: Classic case of haves and have nots. Good ole boy club also comes to mind.

    I have been working at John Crane full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Large company with lots of markets around the globe - so in theory it should weather global market downturns better than some. Has 401K match, but other benefits are expensive and getting poorer coverage.

    Cons

    Been with the company over 15 years, this used to be a decent company, but it has since gone to the bean counters. Very top heavy in management, with little investment in the people that actually do the work and put product out the door. All the focus is on acquisitions and sales force - which does no good if the people that have to design, manufacture, and assemble the products are left in the cold. Raises have always been less than 3% even during good years, so if you don't have a great salary to start it's going to take many, many years to get there. Every couple of years we get a new batch of upper management that then feels like they have to put their stamp on the company and change things (to justify their big paying job). So every couple of years they change how everybody is supposed to do their jobs on a daily basis - all that results in confusion, poor quality, poor employee satisfaction, jobs being late, and a lot of frustration.

    I have been working at John Crane full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    pay is okay. benefits are par at best. hours are good offer overtime on weekends

    Cons

    management has no idea how to run a machine let alone program it. no clue the steps on how to make a good part. and upper management has even bigger blinders as to what goes on with their own shop floor. lots of empty promises and whining about how they are broke

    A lot of good people there that have great ideas. They are willing to help correct the problems

    Upper management is set on it's ways and will not listen. if it's not there ideas it's not a good one. everyone is leaving for this reason and no one wants to apply.

    I have been working at John Crane

    Pros

    The co-op in the International Projects Group gives business and marketing students exposure to diverse business experiences. Exposure to sales processes, CRM, analysis, reporting, project tracking, and industry research are a few of the staples of the internship while some involvement in global and regional strategy may take place. There is a lot of data-entry, but some of the intern projects that add to professional experience on the resume make it all well worth it.

    Cons

    Upper management could improve on considering the audience when reporting the status of the company to the employees. Office technology is slowly improving, but still needs some improvement. Office decor is a little depressing.
