    I have been working at Crown Holdings full-time

    Pros

    Friendly, community culture. Excellent compensation. Excellent medical benefits, including dental. 401k and pension plan. On-site cafeteria. On-site gym free to all employees. Frequent raffles and employee appreciation events. Long established company with stability.

    Cons

    Women will be subjected to occasional sexual harassment, although if it is reported to HR, it will be addressed. Poor leadership in graphics department. Graphics department is behind the times and disorganized, still can't get it together in terms of process. Employees are pitted against each other and targeted. Employees' job performance will be discussed by manager to other employees in the department, and employees will be asked to keep tabs on other employees by the manager.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Managers should not lead with insecurity and paranoia. Managers should not pit employees against each other. Managers should keep employees' job performance confidential and not discuss it with other employees. Managers should help out in times of high volume in terms of directing priorities. Managers should not browbeat employees, instead they should support them and give them the tools to succeed.

    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Crown Holdings in April 2013.

    Interview Details

    Received a referral from an ex-co-worker and had an extended phone interview with an HR recruiter who had also worked for a mututal previous employer. The frustrating part was that the posted jobs were very narrow in their scope and the HR representtaive expressed his frustration on the ability of his organization to widen their parameters.
