    Pros

    Great training process. Extremely thorough training process. The company stands for great values, consistent encouragement of all employees to further their careers.

    Cons

    Working as a contractor should allow for greater chance of being brought on full time. Very un-transparent of open possibilities. Little effort to help you network and further your career. All talk, no walk.

    I have been working at Cardinal Health full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    PTO, Work life balance, talented people, most colleagues willing to sit with you to share knowledge (not manager) foster idea of collaboration.

    Cons

    Been with the company for 8 years and had 7 manager. Re-org constantly believing that will keep the company fresh and new but really more confusing with no clear sense of direction. Manager only care about their next opportunity not about your growth or development. You have to have friends and family membership to get a promotion. Individuals are hand selected to be shoe in- if you not in the club no point in applying for another position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your emerge and lead participants are not the only candidate fit for the job. You have very talented people that are under utilized.

    Pros

    Amazing benefits. Great PTO starting from day one.

    Cons

    Competitive 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 ManagementAdvice

    Have 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.

    Pros

    Generous vacation time and bonus plans for management level employees.

    Cons

    Talent 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 ManagementAdvice

    Stop 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.

    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 ManagementAdvice

    The 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.
