    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.

    I worked at Parker Hannifin full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    My boss was a great mentor. He taught me how to be the best I could be. He created a fun and challenging career for me.

    Cons

    Management did not treat all customers the same. We were told not to spend too much time with what management called Z customers. i thought that is wrong. All customers should be treated with the highest level of customer satisfaction.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work.

    I worked at Parker Hannifin as a contractor (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    There are a lots of good people and opportunity to learn about my job and my roles based on my assignments. People are helpful.

    Cons

    I do not allowed to attend any type of "pay training" like "full time". I wish I can get training (that pertain to my assignment) like those full time employee does.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow the contractor for a training that pertain to their job assignment like full time employee. The knowledge to do the job will pay off the investment.

    I worked at Parker Hannifin full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I worked in the HR department in Morton and the training and opportunities to advance or take on more responsibilities were great! My boss was awesome and always willing to teach me and help me set and reach my goals. She was always open to ideas and suggestions and willing to try new things. Employee incentives and recognition programs were top notch. I also liked the fact that for the most part everyone worked together as a team.

    Cons

    Sad, but true, I honestly can't think of anything that actually pertained to me.
