I have been working at Parker Hannifin full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Benefits and pay were nice for the area.

Cons

Cronyism, middle management put on a different face to upper management when they toured.

Advice to Management

Surprise inspections and interview with the actual workers. Time and time again there was a hazardous work environment and things were swept under the rug a week prior to visits. If injured on the job, the employee would be denied out of hand and the employee made miserable until the point they quit, keeping Parker corporate's hands clean. Shameful and cowardly.

    Decentralized corporate structure, not a vertically integrated as they could be

    Advice to Management

    Work on a uniform centralized resource of sales force to utilize in the field. And more importantly keep it updated.

    Pros

    You are exposed to a different way of managing day to day issues that you will make you a more rounded person when it comes down to decision making. The company has a hierarchy which is interesting to review and see the inter-relationships on how a big company works.
    This is only my third job, first in a big company and I wish those other company's had some of the tools / discipline you see at TIMES in this company

    Cons

    You will never use the methods you learned 100% and going to another company you quickly realize the waste thats in Parker. If they held a lean meeting on their lean systems, they would quickly see that they are a waste and put in new systems - actually take advantage of ideas created in THIS century.
    The company's management is only concerned with their personal PPP's and will drive the company's long term goals off a cliff to gain personal profits.
    Management in the company is all old Parker employees who are not qualified in their positions and know next to nothing about our industry - but are applauded with plaques and awards for nothing more than being friends with Cleveland. Workers are ignored who get the work done while these leaches who take away opportunitys for someone who can do the job are never hired and the expertise is never gained.

    Advice to Management

    Look at the company's management structure and do one of those Kaizen events to figure out how a successful company was driven into the ground, became a joke in the industry and has its biggest customers tell us to never step foot in their company again!
