    I worked at Parker Hannifin as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    Some managers are very willing to help you, good opportunities to move up, lenient scheduling

    Cons

    Too much department separation - no one understands/cares to learn how other departments work, which causes many problems in a supply chain type environment.
    lack of communication between departments
    lack of discipline

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train employees not only for their specific job title, but also with additional knowledge to understand how company works as a whole. When problems occur, discover HOW the problem occurred, DISCUSS how to fix it, and EDUCATE others so problem can be prevented in the future.
