    I have been working at Parker Hannifin full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Interesting work and some interesting projects to work on

    Cons

    Bad managers, difficult coworkers with bad attitudes and cursing. Strong push for offshore employees that produce very low quality work to take over jobs. Coworkers that refuse to work with other coworkers due to personality differences.

    I have been working at Parker Hannifin full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Some nice people to work with.

    Cons

    No advancement, overworked and unappreciated by manager. Systems are as old as the building. Everything is manual and unless you are a manager, you are treated like you're an idiot (even if you have a degree). Only certain people are promoted or recognized (if you're in the click). I wouldn't recommend this job to anyone.

    Advice to Management

    Start practicing what your values are and check your ego at the door, and get some decent health insurance!

    I worked at Parker Hannifin as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It's indoors in A/C and it's a clean environment. I really have no more to say here. But I must write 20 words.

    Cons

    Shady people. People do job duties when they don't even have a degree or skilled trade to do it. But want to justify there right when discussing an issue. Management and front office at the Fort Worth stratoflex facility can't keep anyone. Turnover is like your in a restaurant so they can never get a solid plan moving forward.

    Advice to Management

    Watch your people on the floor. Hire skilled and educated people. Not temps!

    "Accounting Professional"

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

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

    Pros

    Great people, most have worked for the organization for 10+ years. Great accounting training program. Benefits are average, were once better. Promote Safety First. Tuition reimbursement.

    Cons

    Fake complicated metrics and behind in technology for a company this size. I once felt Parker Hannifin was a great place to work, great culture, awesome perks and management care about the people and not just profit. Now I feel the organization literally has no soul and only focus on short term growth of the stock. Not sustainable growth when you prioritize only growth for a handful of people at the top and not consider the organization as a whole. Ruined the good culture by getting rid off benefits, replaced engage employees with temps and don't communicating regularly. Parker promotes empower employees but reality is the majority of us feel we have no power and little control on where the company is heading.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid off ppp's or simplify the process. Improve communication. Have more surveys and share results in a timely manner. Pay attention on what is happening to the culture. Focus on innovation and organic growth.

    Pros

    Pay was fair with my level of experience.

    Cons

    Management has little or no regard for hardworking employees. Systems are outdated, business teams do not communicate. Employees treated poorly.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. Have a "real" HR system to address concerns. Reward valuable employees and purge those who continue to obstruct progress.
