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

    Pros

    Good Benefits if you Have a Family

    Cons

    Since the Late 80's it Has been a Great Company until around the year 2010 Many Experienced knowledgeable Managers Started to Leave for other Corporations or Retiring and it Became a Company being Managed by People that don;t really Understand the Product or The Customer Needs, Most Products are outsourced ,Machinery has been Discarded or sold to Supliers

    Advice to Management

    IT would have been great if the people that left/Retired/Got Laid off would have shown the younger Management now in place to Continue the Parker Traditions and Beliefs , But they Discard People in Reductions in Force that have experience that Care about the Name in order to cut Costs and to Get LEAN ,Really Sad but l glad that I got to work with old school people when it was a great family .

    I worked at Parker Hannifin full-time

    Pros

    Good Pay, fair benefits. Some good people to work with within the ranks. You have to find them.

    Cons

    They only care about the bottom line and making their metrics. No long term planning, only short term changes on the fly. Treat hourly personnel poorly. Poor upper management support. Zero training for anyone hourly or salary. Corporate needs to get off of their behinds and spend meaningful time in the plants to see what is really going on in the trenches. They have no clue.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of you people and they will take care of you. Become more people oriented and support them.

    I worked at Parker Hannifin full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great people. Interesting products serving world class customers.

    Cons

    Absolutely no customer focus. Way behind in orders but management does not seem to care. No mention of all about customer satisfaction. Stuck in a 70's and 80's mindset. Business software and systems are so bad that the business depends completely on spreadsheets. A by frustrating place to work, and it shows as the workforce is not happy. Very low pay and a terrible vacation policy.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on customer! Acknowledge to employees that the Parker business tools are bad and stop pretending they are remotely adequate.
