    I have been working at Parker Hannifin full-time

    Pros

    Benefits and not much else. They need good benefits because everyone hates to work here.

    Cons

    Unable to use benefits because of long work hours. Basically working two jobs, getting paid for one. The continuously are performing business process improvements using the employee as the guinea pig to validate results. You are not allowed to smile out of fear that people will think you don't work hard enough.

    As they loose engineers, they do not hire more. This creates more stress for the current engineers. They use outside vendors for everything possible, like engineering from India. They scare all the employees by constantly outsourcing more and more positions. Only half of all people at parker actually work there. The rest are outside contractors.

    There is very low employee moral because of this. I read these reviews before I came to Parker and did not believe them. Please don't make the same mistake. Also, the stress causes health problems. Several people take stress leave from Parker.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a careful look at employees before making them managers. Mine was young, and had a lot to prove. He turned out to take his role too far.
