    I have been working at Parker Hannifin

    Pros

    They will promote from within, those who have been able to demonstrate their skills. I started as a production test technician and because I was always interested in understanding more about the products, I was move into a R&D position. That led to a promotion as an Assembly & Test Manufacturing Engineer and lastly as a Team Leader for a manufacturing cell.

    Cons

    I hit a ceiling and could only advance so far. Typical monthly shipment driven company but I thrive in high pressure environments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work. Great HR Dept., the best Engineers and production personel I've ever experienced.

    I worked at Parker Hannifin

    Pros

    I like the office atmosphere and most of the employees that I met are friendly. I also like the transparency among people. And the training I received during my tenure as a GET was a wholesome experience.

    Cons

    It's a little taxing at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have heard many of my co-workers (on salary) that they do not receive over-time pay when they spent upwards of 20 hours in one month working off the clock. This is wrong and should be fixed. (by the way, this is the only thing I have come across that is not great about Parker).

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

    Pros

    Great work environment with lots of friendly people.
    The people working there have a lot of enthusiasm for what they do. Many will take the time to explain concepts to you if you have a question about something.
    I personally didn't feel pressured to work longer hours than I needed to and often only stayed late to avoid traffic.

    Cons

    You're required to use some pretty old and buggy software. I understand it would cost a bundle to upgrade the company but I saw more DOS style windows there than I could count.
    Many senior engineers commented that new management was encouraging workers to do more with less. While it did not effect me personally, most people I spoke to about this seemed overwhelmed with the work being given to them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider giving your workers a bit more leisure to complete their current tasks before overloading them with new work. You'll likely lose a lot of good staff if this continues.

    Pros

    Very Stable company. Many opportunities for advancement and moving up. Great company to be apart of, they are an American company and represent a great opportunity for many individuals.

    Cons

    The usual things that come along with working for a large multi-national corporation. Sometimes communication can be unclear on things and getting things done through HR can be time consuming but this is to be expected and I can't complain really.
