    Pros

    Work environment, work life balance not un reasonable. They do a lot for the staff as far as celebrations, lunches, gift cards to say thanks

    Cons

    Salary not in line with other levels at similar industries. Way too much entertaining of BS. Micro managed to some degree and decisions questioned.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus more on the business and less on the hand holding.

    Pros

    Professional company that provides a great and prompt service to its customers. Good benefits, all the essentials.

    Cons

    Employee satisfaction gets lost in the need to adhere to the customer's demands. Long weeks (50 hours) during inopportune hours. Work life balance suffers greatly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should try to implement employee feedback more when it attempts to change work processes.

    I worked at Cardinal Health (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Independence high paced work culture always something to tackle, makes for quick days good focus on process improvement and lean principles. Great teams overall as we all try to survive the unknown corporate direction.

    Cons

    Indecision of home office in Ohio to move jobs from Chicago for past ten years. Medium salary target makes it hard to maintain qualified people unless upper levels. HR detached subject to Ohio distance not much/little help in career development.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate direction out of respect either drive one company or leave the divisions alone but decide.
