I have been working at Parker Hannifin full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

The benefits are great! Salary is above average. Lots of great people to work with. Good upper and middle management. Nearby Sylvania is nice place to live. Vacation is easy to schedule. Sick time is on the honor system. Safety is really good here.

Cons

Metamora is out in the cornfields and closest big city is Toledo. Sylvania is really nice but taxes are high.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Some enthusiasm from management would be nice.

    Pros

    Pay is competitive, treatment of employees by policies of their organizational structure leaves much to be desired. They have the profit to treat their employees with some semblance of respect but they don't and won't.

    Parker is a fluid-mechanical-actuator type company but in recent years has been breaking into the aviation industry with fledgling electronic flight control systems and other electronics, well designed and built in India, in the current trend of capitalizing on foreign engineering talent and taking advantage to the point of abuse of personnel on h1b visas, but bungled in the marketing, technical customer support and support to aviation authorities.

    Cons

    The most common complaint at Parker Hannifin is Labor Relations, and I experienced it first hand in Irvine - it is critically bad.

    Parker is trying to use its fluid mechanical manufacturing production model on electronics engineering and it's a train wreck; it doesn't know enough about electronics yet, especially for the aviation industry it pursues.
