    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.

  2. Thought it was a good company to work for!

    Pros

    The benefits and PTO from day one are great. Security is upheld and a major concern. Does the best they can to please their customers.

    Cons

    Management(save for one or two supervisors) tend to ask our opinion on things, then think that their own thoughts are what we said instead and go with that. Equipment needs fixed/replaced BADLY! 11+ hour nights back to back for weeks. Constantly changing clock in times with maybe a week at best notification. High productivity demands with low support. Will be penalized if you need to leave early for any reason, even if TOLD to go home due to sickness or even injury. Will be penalized if you leave ON TIME when there are routs left to be picked. Will NOT train those that are interested in being trained for different areas even if said areas are in dire need of more personnel.

    Advice to Management

    LISTEN to your employees, they do have brains, and one ore two MIGHT actually have a better idea than you do every now and then.

    Pros

    Culture/work hard-play hard. Manager manages tasks,leads people.

    Cons

    dead end jobs...satisfy employees willing to learn and move-require change to grow.

    Advice to Management

    compensation should be more, pay attention to what works and what doesn,t and why.

    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 Management

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

    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 benefits, exciting and important work

    Cons

    Low compensation in some business units for the exact same job. People are advanced too quickly to management positions without sufficient training and are poor managers. Cardinal talks about their Leadership Essentials, but most of the managers I have encountered don't abide by them and play political territory games instead.

    Advice to Management

    Include all employees in the dialogue about changes to the company before it happens. More often than not, you reorganize and it appears as a kick in the gut of the employees actually doing the day-to-day work. You talk about the importance of the individual employee and spend a lot of money on talent development... but that effort rarely goes toward the actual workers, and instead is spent on managers. This is a problem.

    Pros

    Good benefits, company invests in tools and training to help employees, compensation is adequate but nothing to rave about. Great amount of paid time off.

    Cons

    Hard to advance, lots of politics to the company, low level employees are poorly compensated. Paid time off never rolls over, cannot be cashed out. Consistently short staffed, profit not shared with all employees except through annual 401(k) contribution. No real rewards for exceptional performance outside occasional spot bonuses and small annual increases.

    Advice to Management

    Show the core employees which are the face of your business that you do care about them. The feel is that entry level employees in NPS can be easily replaced and are not valued based on the low starting wages and minimal annual increases. There should be more compensation (bonuses) tied to the performance of the location/business unit/department for all to share in the wealth not just higher level management.
