    Pros

    Good compensation and benefits and hours.

    Cons

    Management out of touch with customer needs.

    Advice to Management

    Management too into themselves and out of touch with customer needs. Company has grown to the point that the only thing that matters is the bottom dollar over customer and employee. Too many chiefs and not enough Indians.

    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 Systems are outdated, business teams do not communicate.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.

    Pros

    Decent pay and global company.

    Cons

    Outdated ERP system, trying to keep the shareholder happy by cutting staff and not replacing equipment.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your biggest assets, your people and then your technology and equipment. You will not be competitive unless you do. I don't forecast this company lasting 5 more years unless drastic changes are made.

    Pros

    The people are the best aspect about working here. Most everyone is pleasant and friendly. The pay is fairly good.

    Cons

    Antiquated systems, very unorganized processes, stale work environment, no diverse leadership (mainly white, conservative males). Overall, this company seems to be stuck in the past with a narrow mindset. They'd probably do well to get fresh leadership in there to truly move the company forward. Definitely not a place for younger people looking for an inspiring work experience but I guess considering the options in the area, this is an okay place.

    Advice to Management

    Get into the new millennium. Realize that if you treat your people really well, they're going to give back to you hundredfold. Look at other truly great and innovative companies and what they're doing in business and with their people.

    I worked at Parker Hannifin full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    My site had fantastic people, and they were definitely one of the key reasons it was such a great place to work. The benefits were leaned out, but still pretty decent. Work/Life balance is what you make of it and for me, it was particularly easy to manage.

    Cons

    Upper management is too hell bent on the metrics, too many metrics, but doesn't act upon them with vigor, even though the presumed outcome from the trend is extremely bleak. Upper management is too focused on micro management that the basic fundamentals of a company, such as quality, safety, security, etc. are overshadowed/not addressed in the correct manner.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on the issues at hand. Be aware. Plan. Have proper foresight. Be proactive, not reactive, and above all, take care of your employees. Generals, by themselves don't win wars, their soldiers do.

    Pros

    Right now I can't think of anything. If you like coming to work every day wearing a shirt and tie instead of having the option of working from home then go for it.

    Cons

    Not sure if you will have a job tomorrow. They are outsourcing to foreign countries. Employee moral couldn't be any lower. I/T is losing people left and right. Not a co. for millennials.

    Advice to Management

    Get involved with the people more. Don't just look at the numbers sales per employee, look at the employee
