    Pros

    Cardinal is a great place to learn and grow. Staff was great, a lot of opportunity for internal growth.

    Cons

    Pay was not competitive, bonus structure not that strong.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Understand the types of people that are leading or managing. Some have been moved to positions because of behavioral issues towards others and are not properly held accountable.

    I worked at Cardinal Health full-time

    Pros

    Tremendous job at providiing strategic vision and roadmap for each fiscal year. Lots of opportunity to network across multiple specialties within the healthcare market.

    Cons

    Be prepared to roll up your sleeves and work hard to make the necessary impact, but also know that you'll gain a diverse skill set which will lend to promotions and/or job changes as you grow your career.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work harder to retain good talent. And should they leave to explore options outside of Cardinal Health, don't hesitate to reach back out to bring them back into the family culture. There's much to be said of those who understand the industry trends, have the network within the company and can make a positive impact.

    Pros

    Excellent culture, benefits, and work environment. Leadership is strong and hierarchy is decentralized. Very flexible working schedule and realistic goals and expectations.

    Cons

    It's a big company so like other big companies can be difficult to move through the red tape and identify key decision makers. Company is growing through acquisition adding complexities.

    I have been working at Cardinal Health full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Cardinal values real work life balance giving nearly 4 weeks of paid time off annually to new hires and has a strong benefits package. In my department, using PTO even early on the job is encouraged. They expect a professional work output from their employees but as of yet I don't see a culture that expects overworking or even really rewards it. There's a gym, health clinic, pharmacy, and credit union onsite so it's really convenient. I know a number of people who have worked at Cardinal for years and they all recommend it. Cardinal encourages career and skill development and moving within the company after an appropriate amount of service time - enough to learn and perform your current job with excellence. Compensation is appropriate - not excellent but not poor, and with all the other benefits and potential for growth it is worth taking.

    Cons

    Training has been a bit slow so there's been times I haven't had a whole lot to do during these first few weeks, but that's normal in many office jobs. The pay could be better considering nearly everyone in the department is a college grad but the starting pay is roughly $30k.

    Pros

    Great place to work if you enjoy dressing up and following company rules and regulations. Flexible hours, great medical coverage and plenty of room to advance your career. Pay is much higher that most other large corporations in Columbus and you can expect a performance review and a raise every year.

    Cons

    Reorganization happens about every 6 months. As soon as I figured out how to please one boss, I was given a new one. We were frequently moved from one building to another. Successful employees have learned how to go with the flow.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I appreciated the 1:1 time with my managers. Other companies should do that.
