Pros

Parker provides alternative benefits coverage and also has on-site services at some locations. Some locations offer AWS. If you show promise early in your career then internal growth opportunities are available more quickly. Employees who leave often return to Parker in different roles for higher pay.

Cons

Parker is very conservative and slow to change. Some systems are old or home grown and transitioning to newer ones is a slow process. Parker's management is more reactive to situations and does not seem to be able to clearly communicate the vision. The culture used to have a family oriented feel where the employee was valued but that has changed. Now employees work long hours with constantly changing demands and little appreciation.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to your employees. Make efforts to be more proactive. Communicate clearly and honestly. Stop making unreasonable demands on your employees. Focus on more employee development.

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

    Pros

    -Fair and stable employment with good salary and benefits
    -Many opportunities for advancement
    -Huge corporation, so again, the opportunities are vast

    Cons

    -Lots of 'experienced' individuals that at times can be resistant to change and new ideas
    -Huge corporation, so there are plenty of gatekeepers that sometimes make progress difficult (i.e. significant red tape/approvals for investing in new, but much needed equipment)

    I worked at Parker Hannifin full-time

    Pros

    The people employed at Parker are excellent. Feels like one large extended family. I would definitely recommend working at Parker Hannifin.

    Cons

    The only challenges of working here are that it is an old school engineering company. With that comes being well managed and always profitable, but may lack modern business theories and strategies.
