    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!

    Pros

    Big company. Good benefits for health care and profit sharing plan, 401k and 5% match. Locations world wide.

    Cons

    Each company within parker acts like a small company and are pawns being played by the larger divisions.

    Advice to Management

    Be careful that you know the price you are paying when you consolidate small fast growing companies into large poorly managed ones.

    I worked at Parker Hannifin full-time

    Pros

    Great learning experience. Learned a lot about the industry, and was given a lot of responsibility.

    Cons

    Antiquated Information Systems. Seemed too conservative and bureaucratic. Pay seemed too low for a management position

    Advice to Management

    Every day you don't begin upgrading to a full-blown ERP system like SAP or Oracle, is another day closer to failure.
