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

    Pros

    Parker recently purchased the company I work for. It is to early to know what the Pros will be. So far Parker has expressed a very positive attitude regarding Baldwin Filters and embraced our work ethic and philosophy. I look forward to continued growth & seeing Baldwin Filters become a important member of the Parker family.

    Cons

    Baldwin Filters has only been a part of the Parker Hannifin corporation for 6 months. At this time I cannot comment on any cons. So far the transition has been stressful, as expected. There has been anxiety experienced waiting to understand the impact of the acquisition. None of these issues are negative, but part of the process.
