    Design Engineering Intern at Parker Aerospace Fluids Systems Division

    Design Engineer Intern (Former Employee) Irvine, CA

    Pros- Great compensation for an intern.
    - Heavy involvement with actual detailed engineering work. Very little menial tasks that are often expected of interns.
    - Lots of networking opportunities with clients and vendors.

    Cons- Given the great level of confidence placed on interns, it can be very easy to acquire the same workload as a full-time engineer while still attending school full-time.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNone really, perhaps offer more training opportunities to interns and co-ops.

    Great People and a well-managed company

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Columbus, OH

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

    ConsThe 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.

    It is a good place to work while living in the central valley

    Training Specialist (Current Employee) Modesto, CA

    ProsThe culture and people make it enjoyable. It does well, and has good products. The stock always does well.

    ConsThe pay is average at best. There rather have experience than education. There are a lot of dead-end jobs. You have to sit and wait for people to retire in order to move up.
