    Pros

    Still a good crew from old Helac, but new management is all about shoving product out the door.

    Cons

    Bean counter mentality. New management doesn't listen to the core people that should run things.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the dead weight, and listen to the right people.

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

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits. Good commute.

    Cons

    Closed-minded, borderline inept leadership. Bulk of the work falls on the rank and file employees. No flexible work schedules. Very big on "face time" in the office. Not very much upward mobility.

    Advice to Management

    Needs more engaged and effective leadership, just not a "check the box" mentality. Too much micro-managing. Need to allow for more flexible work schedules. Need to introduce defined career paths for upward mobility.

    Pros

    Parker Hannifin, specifically the Racor Filtration division, has a great atmosphere where they encourage personal growth, innovative thinking, and design creativity.

    Cons

    Upper management has shown a serious lack of ability in handling major events. In lew of having a layoff, the division GM decided to cut everyone's salary by 10% (placing many employees who live paycheck-to-paycheck in dire situations) and then still had 2 mass layoffs when they realized their work-around wasn't working.
