    Cardinal Health

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Dublin, OH

    ProsAmazing benefits. Great PTO starting from day one.

    ConsCompetitive culture. Everyone likes to back stab other employees. Getting hired has a lot to do with who you know. Who you know has a lot to do with getting promoted. Some of the most intelligent people there don't have the best jobs, so it's difficult talking to those who were promoted off of being liked versus actually being able to do your job well. As I was hired on, I was told about how much everyone didn't like being there, and/or working there, because of the way they fired or promoted employees.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHave some personality. Don't let athletes run HR, you might want to hire someone who didn't go through college drunkenly hopping from bed to bed.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Dublin, OH

    ProsGenerous vacation time and bonus plans for management level employees.

    ConsTalent management is a joke. Very driven by who you know, not how you have performed. Strong leftover boys network at the higher levels which make it a difficult place for women to advance. Strong double standard is part of the culture.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop changing the structure every year and deal with the executives who have failed to execute year after year. Better appreciate diversity of thought and gender equality.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Middle Management Is Oblivious

    IT Lead (Former Employee)
    Dublin, OH

    Pros+ Nice campus and amenities.
    + Paid paternal leave

    Cons- Middle management and some executives have little to no interest in their employees.
    - Managers make fun of employees behind closed doors, nice to your face. Won't realize potential in people or give them opportunities and instead write them off (I've sat in these meetings).
    - No training or continuing education because they spent its budget elsewhere (shhh).
    - The benefits used to be great, but went downhill fast. Every year they cut them.
    - There's a "re-org" every year.
    - It's frowned upon if you don't take your laptop home with you. Do more with less!
    - Cubicled, silo structured teams ensure you have a meeting every minute of the day (see "take laptop home" comment above).

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe best ideas come from below. Stop treating employees like they're children - picking favorites and ignoring ideas like they're moot. Invest in them and allow them to grow.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Good company

    Senior Financial Analyst (Former Employee)
    Dublin, OH

    ProsGreat benefits - tuition reimbursement, health care, 401k match, on site gym.
    People generally driven and personable.
    Company outings.
    Basically you get out what you put in. In order to move up you have to go above and beyond your job duties.

    ConsWork can be a bit monotonous and boring.
    Not a lot of community outreach that a lot of other central Ohio companies are involved with.
    Expectation to stay in role at least 2 years.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great people, good company, uncertain leadership

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Dublin, OH

    ProsWork with great people
    Ability to work from home part or full time

    ConsRecent outsourcing has made it difficult to accomplish work
    Pay is below average for most positions
    merit increase is poor
    Long work weeks

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop outsourcing. Although it may look good on the bottom line, it drastically affects the ability to get work accomplished.

    Disappointing - flat opportunity

    Consultant (Former Employee)
    Dublin, OH

    ProsGreat co-workers who care about customers

    ConsOverwhelming poor leadership who often did not have to apply for their position are perceived by their actions to care more about how they look than customer satisfaction. Extreme highly political/male dominated environment. Women especially silenced/ostracized from leadership positions in IT.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCreate more of a sense of fairness. Would favor the VPs ask themselves if they would have their positions if staff had opportunity to vote for them....

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good Place to build a career

    Project Manager (Former Employee)

    ProsLarge enough company to create several opportunities.

    ConsVery complex organization. Difficult to gain agreement or necessary data for projects.

    Good Company, trying to make changes,

    Consultant (Current Employee)
    Dublin, OH

    ProsBig company with lots of opportunity, majority of the Cardinal Team are trust-worthy and loyal, hard working. Company is getting ready to make significant upgrades to back-end and supporting technologies, proving they are willing to invest in their future.

    ConsIt is a corporation. Sometimes it takes a while to get things done that would appear to be simple, and easy to implement. Benefits package is pretty good, but they could consider stretching stocks/options to lower than management level

    Advice to Senior ManagementFigure out how to share best practices and talents. Remove blinders and see the bigger picture, help figure out and change IT cost center mentality. Finally, align goals further up the chain; upper management needs to consider the same goals when making decisions, otherwise you will continue to see sub-optimal results.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
