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

    Pros

    Coworkers are nice the work is enjoyable and the amount of vacation days is above average based on other companies I have worked for.

    Cons

    To many white board to many metrics there are metrics to track metrics and white boards everywhere. Too much collectable unused data. Too any meetings there are meetings on how to have meetings. If you hear empowered employees don't buy into it they will include you in meetings where they act as though your opinion matters but they already know what the outcome (their way) of the meeting will be. Management does not manage the way they want to they manage as YES puppets to general manager. Everything that takes place in the company has a metric of action item. If you are lazy or have tardiness issues you will get promoted. They lazy get ahead the workers are stuck at dead end jobs. Management has their many favorites ones that typically would not even be able to work at walmart will excel at parker in the eyes of management.

    Advice to Management

    As mentioned in alot of these reviews parker needs to start listening to there employees that preform the work not the manufacturing engineers who dictate how it should be done and how long it should take when they their self have never built the products. Listen to us and mybe the yearly surveys will be higher and not decline uear after year.

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

    Pros

    It is a fairly close community

    Cons

    They do not look at you work ethics but discrimination. I was working extremely hard and you could ask any employee there. I got terminated because some one said I didn't want to work first shift as that was a lie and never said anything of that sort.

    Advice to Management

    Actually take time to look at workers work ethics

    Pros

    Coworkers. Opportunities to cross functional teams are plenty. Hiring from within is encouraged. Has held on to many employees for extended periods, 20 plus yrs in some cases.

    Cons

    Serious lack of integrity in resources, outdated drawings, complacency and "Thats not my job" attitude in many departments. Lack of teamwork and accountability. HR has some unfair and questionable tactics. Employees are not treated well. Serious waste of time and resources on ridiculous areas, while resources needed in many departments are lacking. Little or no support from upper management to improve processes. No support from Sales / Business Teams in managing customers' requirements. Lead times never followed, over committing while causing problems.

    Advice to Management

    Hold people accountable. Reinforce initiative and thinking outside the box. Reward employees who achieve goals and do not continue to allow employees with numerous offenses and shortcomings to hinder progress. Keep the productive employees and reanalyze those who cannot perform satisfactory.
