I have been working at Parker Hannifin full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Parker provides alternative benefits coverage and also has on-site services at some locations. Some locations offer AWS. If you show promise early in your career then internal growth opportunities are available more quickly. Employees who leave often return to Parker in different roles for higher pay.

Cons

Parker is very conservative and slow to change. Some systems are old or home grown and transitioning to newer ones is a slow process. Parker's management is more reactive to situations and does not seem to be able to clearly communicate the vision. The culture used to have a family oriented feel where the employee was valued but that has changed. Now employees work long hours with constantly changing demands and little appreciation.

Advice to Management

Listen to your employees. Make efforts to be more proactive. Communicate clearly and honestly. Stop making unreasonable demands on your employees. Focus on more employee development.

    I worked at Parker Hannifin full-time

    Pros

    The people employed at Parker are excellent. Feels like one large extended family. I would definitely recommend working at Parker Hannifin.

    Cons

    The only challenges of working here are that it is an old school engineering company. With that comes being well managed and always profitable, but may lack modern business theories and strategies.

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

    Pros

    The pay and benefits was the best part.

    Cons

    This company is a company that if you suck up you can move up. If gourmet don't tell on people and try to make them look bad you will not move up.

    Advice to Management

    Don't listen to all the gossip cause most of it is untrue.
