bad place to work
worker (Current Employee), Burbank, CAJuly 20, 2015
Pros: plenty of work
Cons: no respect no worklife balance
no respect for employees work is easy just no defined way of doing it too much tribal knowledge. Management has high turn over and HR does nothing for serious violations for breaking certain labor laws

not horrible place to work
Shipping Clerk (Former Employee), Piqua, OHJune 30, 2015
Pros: paid lunch
Cons: asked to do too any different jobs at the same time, so your effeciency is reduced.
A typical day at work flows pretty well, although the work-to-pay ratio in a bit off kilter. At times, asked to do too many things at the same time, so your performance isn't as good as it could be.

Great People, Nice challenging assignments but one of the Worst Manager
Engineer (Former Employee), BurbankMay 22, 2015
Pros: Challenging assignments, Great people. Christmas holiday paid time off
Cons: High Stress level, Management
This is a great place to work. Nice people and nice challenging work assignments. This is a high stress level environment due to ultra aggressive schedule and a HUGE lack of resource.

Most of the managers are great except for my manager. I have three words that can best describe my manager: Rude, Disrespectful and Unprofessional. He is the type of manager who would put people down in front of other people. He also talks bad about other employees and to me that is a NO NO especially for a manager. I am not sure how he became a manager or where he learned how to manage a professional group but being rude and unprofessional is not a way to treat professional engineers. Our group has a very high turn-over rate because of the way he manages. He has no management plan. He will not be the best at listening to your ideas but he is best at micromanaging.

Again, other than one really bad manager, the place is great place to work.

Calibration Technician II (Current Employee), Fort Walton Beach, FLApril 14, 2015
But I feel like I am stuck in the lab, and will never leave that position career advancement-wise. I am good at what I do and they are comfortable...too much so.

Not Enough Opportunity
Assembler III (Current Employee), Redmond, WAMarch 18, 2015
Pros: 9 hours a day and every other friday off
Cons: lack of work and management
As an employee at Crane for 8 years, I've learned that their wasn't many opportunities offered to employees. The reason behind the lack of opportunity was because less work offered to employees. I wanted a job that offered more work so I could learn more skills about solder. The most enjoyable part of my job meeting new people. Even when work was slow, I was kept training updated procedures with my colleagues. Although work was slow, socializing with my colleagues made my job enjoyable.

Field work
Field Service Engineer (Former Employee), St. Louis, MO - Little Rock,ARMarch 12, 2015
Pros: the job in general
Cons: a tremendus amount of overnight travel
I would travel a four state area, repairing & training customer service personal on vending equipment that my co. sold the customer. When not training I would make courtesy calls just to see how their equipment was doing. I basically worked alone with an occasional meeting with management with other field service techs. the management would help you as needed, but encouraged self reliance. I enjoyed meeting all the customer base & forming relationships.

Interesting electronics products for military, aerospace, medical
Director, Quality (Current Employee), Redmond, WAJanuary 24, 2015
Pros: competitive pay
Cons: extensive travel
The best part of the job is the complexity and elegance of the electronics products. It is a fun challenge to team with smart people and be involved with space satellites, weapon systems, commercial aircraft and medical devices that improve life. Extensive travel negatively impacts work/life balance.

Excellent place to work, great atmosphere
Systems Engineering Intern (Former Employee), Lynnwood, WADecember 3, 2014
As an intern I was given tasks that were actually important as well as interesting, and I feel I gained valuable experience in aerospace engineering. The atmosphere at Crane is very positive, people are respectful of each other on all levels, and there is excellent room for advancement. The high level of morale at Crane is something that must be experienced, it is difficult to describe on paper.
