      Restructuring, Repositioning ..... Crane Co's "growth" strategy

      Mar 8, 2016 - Senior Finance Position in New York, NY

      Pros

      Good people working extremely hard to make a difference, meet exceedingly difficult goals. Highly process driven culture, some good training programs. Bonus structure has improved over the years. Tend to hire from within.

      Cons

      Corporate team with little field experience, generally clueless to (nor do they actually care to understand) how their reporting requirements impact the business units. 200-300+ slide PowerPoint presentations are the norm with endless hours spent by the BU leadership team "perfecting" them.... These distractions leads to lack of growth to which the Corporate team responses with continual, year after year of restructuring to meet (or nearly meet) street expectations. By way of example, the excerpt below is from Crane's most recent SEC filing: "In 2015, we recorded pre-tax restructuring charges and related costs of $11 million, substantially all of which was related to the repositioning activities in our Fluid Handling and Aerospace & Electronics segments. In 2014, we recorded pre-tax restructuring charges and related costs of $33.0 million, of which $22.7 million was related to the repositioning activities in our Fluid Handling and Aerospace & Electronics segments and $10.3 million was related to the acquisition of MEI" Seems to never end.................. The change in leadership at the top is another major issue at Crane. Eric Fast was well respected by Crane employees and showed great respect for all. He was tough but fair, listened didn't tell and you could always rely on his word. Unfortunately, this is not the case with the current CEO.

      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.

      Pros

      Good people to work with and good pay. International company offering opportunities to travel. Engaging and management willing to listen to new ideas.

      Cons

      A few people are complacent and the work can be stagnant sometimes. Can engage in Kaizen activities to become as involved as possible.
