    Pros

    Parker is a small global company that has managed to keep its business casual atmosphere throughout. The IT Department always had special events to maintain comradery and social interactions between the teams. Vacation and Vacation Carryover worked well, however the workload and lack of resources did not allow for extended time off which meant many times leaving money on the table for time untaken. Great talent worked at the company during my tenure and overall we made it FUN!

    Cons

    Salary was lower than average for the position and in fact the grade level was minimized to exclude bonus payment my final year there (2021). Workload was unnecessarily heavy due to ill-advised practices between applications. (Service Now to Oracle). 401k match was lowered and eventually stopped for a year during the downturn.

    Toxic environment within division

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Great Benefits, Insurance, PTO, Holidays, Pay

    Cons

    Family members working under same manager who tells manager how to run the division that can do no wrong. Manager plays favorites and is narcissistic. If you’ve done it the manager has done it and better. It’s clearly stated during meetings as well as people talking behind managements back. No matter how high up the chain in the division manager deceives employees by having someone(s) as informants that relays things that are said to them and even suggest employees be their eyes and ears. Very toxic atmosphere. If you don’t catch on to certain methods you’re deemed unproductive. This write up will be considered as a disgruntled employee. Believe as you may. Happiness is getting out of a toxic work environment.
