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

Pros

Minimal.
Some training but only benefiting Parker.
401k match.

Cons

As with the other Parker MSD reviews and Anaheim in particular, all previous reviews are accurate- this is not a desirable place to work, in any department at any level. The management is fanatical about every metric known to man, and to a fault constantly lives by a 30 day focus - that is to make the numbers at any cost rule. Including forced vacations, up and down overtime (depending entirely on the company needs), begging/forcing customers to take products, and whatever it takes. Management cares little about people and customers, other than how much work/sales can they squeeze out with the least pay/cost possible. Everything is driven by an obsession with lean and earnings that only management benefits from, via an impossible to understand RONA bonus payout. This is the most internally focused company I've ever worked for. Quality is a joke and innovation is a myth. Management by intimidation and brute force is the norm, especially in Anahiem. If you like a 60's style work environment with bare minimum resources, undefined strategy and micro management, then this is the place for you.

Advice to Management

Hire the talent needed, pay them well, and stop micro managing every detail at every level. Create a strategy and actually do it. Try investing in the business units, not letting them wither under the power of "and." Lastly get rid of some of the old school, and obvioulsy ineffective dead wood at the senior management level. There's a reason that most new hires (and customers) tend to leave this division after a year or two, and it's not them - it’s you!

    I worked at Parker Hannifin full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    good pay, good job assignments

    Cons

    HR sucks, they only empower the bullys and the beer drinking buddies in management, they have no clue what is really going on in their own division. there are old timers who sit on their butts all day,getting fatter and doing nothing and blaming others for their screw ups.

    Advice to Management

    clean house, get rid of HR, clean out the alcoholics and the bullys then maybe you can keep technicians.

    Advice to Management

    Be more open to young talent and don't make years of work experience the only requirement for growth.
