Going downhill fast...
Marketing Assistant (Former Employee) –  MichiganJuly 27, 2016
I worked for this company for over 25 years. It was a very secure, excellent place to work until the past 2 years. The upper management has been forced out or retired. The new management is more concerned with money than delivering a good product with knowledgable people. Less than a month after watching a mandatory video with the CEO talking about how the employees were their most valuable asset, they announced they were closing our plant and many other plants. Almost all the people with experience and good skills have left the company because they can see what is coming. I receive correspondence every day from the remaining employees about how bad the environment is. It is very sad to me that 85 people at the location I worked at were forced to get other jobs after being a profitable division for many decades. They "downsized", with little regard to the employees and the families that they effected. They are currently getting hammered from customers because they have no service or experienced people left in the company. The people that are remaining with the company are beat up every day from both sides because sales are down but customers are extremely unhappy.
Pros
Benefits, 401K, Profit Sharing
Cons
Not woman friendly, lots of politics, negative attitudes

Great company with some questionable managemnt
Order Picker (Former Employee) –  Columbus, OHJuly 21, 2016
Pay, benefits, co-workers, all these were great. Lower levels of management were open to suggestions and appreciated extra effort. Upper management, however, were a bunch of jerks making poor decisions. I was there long enough to see several higher offices get refilled because they got people in there who had no idea what they were doing, and didn't know how to treat people.
Pros
pay scale, profit sharing, health benefits, coworkers
Cons
upper management making mistakes we all paid for

Overall wonderful work experience
Assembly Worker (Former Employee) –  Charlotte, NCNovember 21, 2016
A typical day of work meant coming in to work to build assembly kits. You had the opportunity to work on all the different components which made everyday different. They took time to teach me much about the assembly process. Management was not only friendly but actually spent time with us while working to hear out our ideas on how to improve the working process. My coworkers were not only helpful but friendly. They made the work floor a fun and relaxing environment. The only hard part of the job getting everything labeled correctly and inspected properly. The most enjoyable part was seeing a finished product go out knowing I had a part in it.
Pros
Fun relaxing environment that promoted reative thinking
Cons
Very easy to mess up a componant if not careful

Sr. Planner/Master Scheduler (Current Employee) –  Devens, MAAugust 17, 2016
Great company with excellent profit sharing, but in need of a more proactive and effective management team. Also, systems are very archaic and make planning nearly impossible, and contributes to the errors that are a result of very poor or lacking processes.
Pros
Excellent benefits & profit sharing
Cons
Archaic systems & processes

Productive and interesting place to work
CNC Machinist (Former Employee) –  10711 N. Main St Machesney Park, ILFebruary 10, 2016
A typical day at work consisted of a daily huddle and discussion about the days work. It would then go to either a continuation of production for a job, or into a setup for a new job. The experiences I received from there were how to run a large cnc lathe and an interesting, new form of tooling. The management was helpful in solving/ resolving problems that come up in the workplace. The co-workers were a very friendly bunch, very close-knit. The hardest part of the job was getting over the stress of the cost of material which I worked on. The enjoyable part of the day was when at the end I had produced some very expensive parts.
Pros
competitive wages, excellent benefits
Cons
short breaks, lack of cellphone use on night shift for employees with families

Horrible place to work, you will get screwed
NDT Inspector (Former Employee) –  Moncks Corner, SCAugust 16, 2016
Product is rushed. all that matters is getting it out the door so managers can get bonuses. Race card is highly used here to get ahead or as protection by bad workers. You will never get into the clicks already established but will be targeted if you say or do the wrong thing. NDT here is a hot mess with disgruntled employees and little pay or room for growth or training. So glad I left, don't work here if you value your reputation & integrity.
Pros
None
Cons
Highly competitive coworkers will back stab you & play race card to get ahead

Over all not bad at all
CNC operator (Current Employee) –  Enfield, CTMay 18, 2016
It was a great job for the last all most eighteen years. The only negative part has been the last five years or so. It started to get very hard to get any real answers for anything by management. Employees ran the shop floor. Some could do that and some couldn't handle that. That is were a lot of employees, wished management would step in and say something. That really never happened.
Pros
pay and all benefits
Cons

Hard work and long hours, but in those times the team pulls through, and lifelong bonds are formed. Each division has a different culture, so my experience may be different than others.

TEV Engineering Co-op (Former Employee) –  Washington, MOOctober 4, 2016
Overall, I loved working here. The company encouraged communication between all stages of the company, so discussing different stages of projects with both the workers on the floor as well as upper management was very common. It led to an environment where it was very easy to learn about the products, implement changes to products and production methods, and an overall family sort of aspect to being a part of the Sporlan team.

Sr. Test Engineer (Current Employee) –  Irvine, CAAugust 25, 2016
Company is in middle of restructure. Most local upper management have been hired from elsewhere within the last couple years. Going through typical belt tightening evolution, due to new economy. Recently purged temporary employees. Many young, college grads have transited through and on to other companies after receiving valuable training here.
Pros
Great place to gain industry skills
Cons
Change is happening

Strategic Commodity Manager (Former Employee) –  Fort Worth, TXJune 2, 2016
Parker is very profitable and customer centered. The employees do everything possible to please Parkers customers back as far as the very beginning of their supply chain. The work schedule is flexible and whatever is promised to the customers everyone is expected to support. There is a great of mid and top management turnover but the lower levels remain relatively consistent. The hardest part of the job is making things happen as quickly as is needed while the most enjoyable part is the constant rapid, fast moving environment and feeling of accomplishment.
Pros
Fast moving environment
Cons
Not always enough time to complete job in as quality manner as one would like.

Lean Team Member (Current Employee) –  Washington, MONovember 21, 2016
Overall a good job but lacks the ability to advance quickly. Great benefits and pay for the type of jobs they have. It is a seasonal industry so there are times when there is the option to go home early and then there are times when overtime seems like it will never end.

Was a good place to work
Machinist (Former Employee) –  Oxford, MIFebruary 4, 2016
For Many years Parker Hannifin was an excellent place to work. However, recent management changes have brought about completely unnecessary changes to the way they do business. You do not build a successful company when the people who design and build your products are shaking in their boots awaiting the next axe to fall .An extremely profitable division in Oxford Michigan was closed as a result of an opinion of new management to "reduce footprint"The end result is an ongoing mess that has been created at Oxfords sister division located at Haverhill MA. Anyone with talent who wants to succeed in their career should steer clear of Parker. You can't fix stupid...
Pros
free lunches
Cons
Incompetant upper level management
