    Pros

    good vacation time and 401k

    Cons

    horrible pay for the amount of work you do!! terrible on hours and no room for promotions!! They always promote from outside rather than reward hard working employees who have been there for 10+ years.

    Pros

    Good pto from day one.Use to have good benefit but they changed medical insurance for 2015. Good group of employees.

    Cons

    Not work balance. The job is hard and they pushed you to work a lot of over time. Work on holidays that place never closes.its a 7/24 operations. Huge turn over in upper management and supervisors. Only one supervisor treat every employee with respect. We all like him and I'm not from his department. Management have no brain and come with crazy ideas that push you to work like a animal.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This advice is to corporate. Put people in higher positions with brain and that know how to appreciate employees. Upper management don't have a clue on how to run the operations. They are clueless. Poor supervisors can't do nothing because upper management. Be upfront with employees and don't lie like politicians.

    IT Service Center Review

    I have been working at Cardinal Health as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    --The majority of co-workers are friendly

    --Laid-back work environment

    --Higher than average pay (compared to other tier I help desk jobs in the area)

    --Thorough training and mentoring

    -- Shift differential (for those that don't work from 9 - 5)

    --Two paid 15 minute breaks

    --It beats not having a job

    --Great place to work while looking for another job

    Cons

    -- Cardinal and my contracting agency screwed up one of my paychecks -- it took 3 weeks for them to fix it

    --Takes around 10 - 12 months on average as a contract employee to be hired full-time (Don't let your staffing agency tell you otherwise)

    --Monotonous work

    --More customer service skills utilized than IT skills (felt that hiring manager was intentionally not clear about this during interview) -- not a very technical job.

    --Some employees, even those in higher positions, malign about other employees behind their backs (toxic workplace)

    --Just get rid of cardinal.com already! Cardinal.com is a legacy website, which has been replaced, but Cardinal keeps it because some customers are afraid to switch. Yes, some of the customers like it, but nobody should be using java 6_20 -- which is the version of the JRE that is compatible with cardinal.com. JRE 6_20 has known security issues. Cardinal.com is supposed to be phased out within the next year supposedly, but they should just get rid of it and make customers switch to the sites that were created to replace it -- these sites don't use Java (except CSOS), look better, and are easier to use.

    --Knowledgebase should be redesigned.

    --Oh yes, it's true they perform pre-employment hair follicle testing.

    Pros

    Working at the IT service center is a 9-5 job. You do not have to worry about it once you leave. Show up on time and adhere to a schedule, and you'll be successful. This is a good "stepping stone" job.

    You can telework after 5 years of working at the service center (in general).

    Cons

    Slow to increase pay.
    Difficult to move up in the company.
    As with any job it can get repetitive and you can get burnt out at times.
