Awful Managers to Work For Business Model that is unYeilding

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

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

ProsCo-workers were very good and tried their best in a very limiting environment

ConsManagers 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 Senior ManagementListen 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.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Satisfying experience as an intern

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Stamford, CT (US)

I worked at Crane Co. as an intern for less than a year

ProsCrane has very friendly staff at their headquarters. Everyone is willing to help you out and make sure you learn.

ConsSome 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.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Good place to work!

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Crane Co.

Pros- Management is receptive to change
- Work-life balance
- Good work environment
- Strong support from colleagues

Cons- Management lacks big vision or does not share with employees
- Lot of effort is put to just maintain status quo.

Advice to Senior Management1) Build a strong plan to integrate acquired companies or it will end up eroding value.
2) Have a great vision so that people feel proud of working for Crane.

Great employees...Poor management

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Crane Co.

ProsGood salary and benefits, Great co-workers who are always ready and willing to help one another. Great products.

ConsStill an "Old Boys Club" even though management tries to deny it. Management can be disrespectful and lack management skills. No Work/Life balance. No chance of advancement. Stressful, authoritative structure. Too many managers not enough workers. Most employees are dissatisfied and waiting for the opportunity to leave when the economy improves.

Advice to Senior ManagementListen to employees. Set realistic goals. Show some respect.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
