Great industry exposure, workload can be brutal, new mgmt appears promising

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Redmond, WA (US)

I have been working at Crane Aerospace & Electronics full-time for more than 3 years

Pros-Hard working employees
-9/80 Schedule - every other Friday off
-Small size - Lots of opportunities to get hands dirty in every aspect of the business
Flexible work hours
-Products are literally life changing (Electronics Group)

Cons- Work load & expectations vary by solution and boss
- Off Friday's can be expected work days depending who you work for
- Lacking development for the increasing young engineer population - Eng 1 v Eng 4 has similar expectations with no official training/on-boarding
- Technology / Equipment is 15-30 years old

Advice to Senior ManagementGet on the floor. Understand the highly regulated industry we are in . Spend the money to get back to basics and invest in the entire business. Allow the team to make it ugly without fearing repercussions.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
