    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Friendly people. Pay is reasonable. The Parker stock (PH) performance has been outstanding. Family oriented.

    Cons

    Parker filtration group has many negatives. The health plan choices are not the ones you like. Deductibles are too high and not affordable. Management is very incompetent and in most cases unqualified individuals hanging on because they are connected to some one. There is a general lack of leadership. Company is known for making high priced junk (poor quality)products.

    Advice to Management

    You got to clean the house and start fresh at all management levels by replacing the existing ones. Your company desperately needs capable managers and leadership in all departments with no exceptions.

    Pros

    Opportunity
    Size and ability to move around the company
    Big company feeling
    Challenging atmosphere and always kept you on your toes

    Cons

    The long hours at Parker Hannifin were very grueling and often at times I felt like I was a consultant.

    Advice to Management

    The pace was good but at time we would stop, drop and roll due to political jockeying. Take a step back and keep your title in your cars and look for the best approach - not just your own
