Fast Paced and Professional Environment
IT Helpdesk Specialist (Former Employee) –  Irvine, CAJuly 12, 2016
Parker Aerospace was one of the most efficiently run companies I have worked at. The IT Department is located it it's own enclosed environment making it great atmosphere for focusing on IT Tasks without distractions.

Parker Aerospace is a very large facility located near the Irvine Spectrum. Great weather year round and one the best cafeteria staffs you will ever meet.
Pros
Truly enjoyed the fast paced and military like facility
Cons
No budget for more permanent positions. Majority of the staff is contractors.

Wonderful place to work
Production Planner (Former Employee) –  Elyria, OHFebruary 3, 2016
I was hired as temporary help to fill in for a planner out on medical leave. Even though the job was only for 3 months, the planners were patient and thorough in my training to assure I could provide maximum assistance. This continued right up to the last day. I felt welcomed and important and did my very best for them.

I assisted with checking material availability, releasing jobs to the floor, and resolving minor issues. This involved learning four or five different software tools. The job was detailed but I felt successful and supported.

The job was interesting but the best part of the place was the people who worked there. The hardest part of the job was leaving it.
Pros
Excellent training. They make sure you are up to speed
Cons
It was only a temporary position

Poor Job Culture, Weak Management, Incompetent Business Team
Project Engineer (Current Employee) –  USAAugust 29, 2015
Lots of responsibility because management is unwilling to make executive decisions. Lots of inter-office finger-pointing trying to assign blame between departments. Job culture was poor with lots of people who were unwilling to take ownership of their responsibilities. Management facilitated this behavior frequently by making excuses for these individuals. Business Team is incompetent and frequently underbids programs resulting in agreements where new products are sold under the cost it takes to make the product
Pros
Job Stability
Cons
Weak management, low compensation

Growing business with many growing pains
Manufacturing Engineer (Current Employee) –  Fort Worth, TXNovember 11, 2014
Progress is being made but the amount of voluntary departures speaks volumes for the state of things right now. Lack of appreciation (fair compensation), inadequate management support and unrealistic expectations top the list for why the culture is so fragile.
Pros
great team/co-worker camaraderie
Cons
compensation, late reviews, very little positive reinforcement

Senior Engineering Technician (Former Employee) –  Irvine, CAOctober 29, 2014
Great company to work for but they are very strict on attendance. They have a nice cafeteria and often have special events with free food and games. The company in Irvine has about 1200 employees. They tend not to hire directly and go through temps services. Low employee turn around rate.
Pros
good pay, cafeteria, nice management
Cons
strict on attendance, limited computer access, it controls everything a little bit too tight, parking can be a problem

Different experience
Plane Assembler (Former Employee) –  Dublin, GASeptember 2, 2014
It was something that I have never done before, but picked up the skills a short while after starting the position. A typical work day consist of loading and unloading the oven, lock wiring units, bonding units with adhesives and sometimes doing dielectric with a trainer. Co-workers were different than most of the jobs I have worked with. The hardest part about the job was when I first started and learning to lock wire, which I accomplished by watching videos on you tube. The most enjoyable part of the job is learning something new.

Large Corporation with Bureaucracy Feel
Administrator (Former Employee) –  Irvine, CAApril 19, 2014
If you like working at a large corporation that's bottom line is always how does this affect the stock price, then you would enjoy working here. It is a mostly male dominated industry with very few women in managerial or director roles. People toil away for over 20 years to make manager. If you are young and quick, you can advance to these roles in half the time. The compensation is on the low side of average. There are full benefits and various work-place programs. Overtime is often not expected and most people that work at this company are clock punchers. Some of the leaders are willing to teach you and mentor you and do value you. Unfortunately, a lot of others are just waiting around for their pension to kick-in and have no interest in advancing the company or bringing it into the 21st century.
Pros
interesting work, solid workplace benefits, and no crazy behavior by workers or bosses' is tolerated.
Cons
inflexible as to work from home or varied work hours, lower pay than other such companies, and very hard to advance quickly.
