    I worked at Crane Co. full-time

    Pros

    If you are interested in more of a 9 to 5 job rather than a long term career with lots of potential, you might be able to find a position that is a good fit

    Cons

    Not much opportunity for advancement. Constant cost cutting to make the stock price go up without concern for the long term. No investment in intellectual capital. HR is not your friend if you are having problems with management.

    I have been working at Crane Co. full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    good people to work with in production but the middle and upper management are the worse people to deal with that I have ever seen.

    Cons

    worked in engineering for 5 years and recently a new "director" took over for the electronics group and as always he has his favorites and craps on everyone else. unfortunately he really doesn't care about anything besides himself and those few that suck up to him. the ethics in the engineering dept. have gone down the drain also in giving the customers bad data and just letting anything go out the door. now that they are closeing the doors on this place they will be keeping a "call center" open for all the customer complaints that will be coming in from the bad parts that have made it out the door in the past couple years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of Bob Tavares and the whole electronics group they are a mess and a losing battle

    I worked at Crane Co. as an intern (less than an 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.

    I worked at Crane Co. full-time (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 (less than an 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.
