    Pros

    Good Salary, lots of advancement opporunities, and security

    Cons

    The corporate Head quarters are located in Ohio. Ohio is very cold in the winter and very hot in the summer. Seriously, pick a more temporate climate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    i would recommend bringing back the employee stock purchase plan. I also think there needs to be more career development opportunities.

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

    Pros

    As a contractor I don't always feel part of a company, its always an us vs them kinda feel. Here not as much. I was in the Dublin OCLC location for 6 months for a project and it paid well. The only reason I left if because they were out of projects and I found a full time perm job doing something I love more.
    My first month working they had a lot food around for different reasons like appreciation days so that's a plus. until you read the con

    Cons

    After working on a few projects with them they seem to have a problem with the direction of the project during the first few weeks of it. We were calling customers one by one to change settings before they realized they can pass the update down automatically then letting us keep track of those updates.
    food everywhere all the time as stated above. great except you feel your waist grow by the hours from sitting all day
