    I have been working at Parker Hannifin as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Smart people, liberal with overtime availability, clean facility, tools provided. Management seems to be aware of production stresses but always keeps a good attitude and is quick to acknowledge good/timely work

    Cons

    Employee diversity. Good that others from different backgrounds are employed at Parker, however there is a lot of cliques that are aligned directly along racial lines. Latinos and Vietnamese seem to be strongly represented and a great deal of talking in those languages is constant

    Advice to Management

    Encourage common courtesy in communication while on the clock. No where did I read repair instructions or company email or hear any meeting conducted in anything other than English.

    Pros

    Great company culture.
    Management does a great job showing they care about their employees.
    PH is heading in a great direction and is doing very well.

    Cons

    Not many opportunities to innovate. Old style company and still structured within traditional methods. Career paths appear limited depending on your initial position.

    Advice to Management

    Young engineers are hired annually, creating a focus group comprised of these individuals will allow them to share vital feedback.

    Pros

    Co-workers and excellent and very good at their jobs. Nice building with a decent gym and cafeteria.

    Management sometimes is stuck in the way they have always done things. This most of the times does not work at all when it comes to new web technologies and design methods.

    I have been working at Parker Hannifin full-time

    Pros

    Great people to work with. Huge world of opportunity for growth. Benefits good. Nice to have a profit share plan.

    Cons

    Losing the culture. Profit driven. Upper management tells people to hit a number and you are safe. Not true - closing anyway. Their word is not trusted.

    Advice to Management

    Too many layoffs in the name of profit. Might be good to let people know you care about them too.

    Pros

    It is a place where you will be fully authorized and make best of yourself if you really pay all your efforts.

    Cons

    It is a big corporation and you may be neglected if you are not well managing your impact and relationships.

    Advice to Management

    Should be more connected with all the business.
