    Pros

    It's the manager you work for or with that makes a difference in your work experience with Cardinal. Great co-workers, teammates. Career growth, benefits.

    Cons

    Not so much a con, however, make sure you network so that you and the value you bring are visible to the organization due to its size and scope.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Talent/ Career development is encouraged, make sure all managers are doing this for all their direct reports.

    Pros

    Good company to work for. Strong management team, very good benefits, excellent resources to do your job.

    Cons

    Employees working in the field seem to be separated from the corporate culture. By that I mean that communications, advancement opportunities, etc. are more targeted to those working in the corporate headquarters than those in the field.

    Pros

    I feel that this company is doing great work, and was proud to work for them. I only left because a better career opportunity was offered to work in the field I really wanted to focus on.

    Cons

    I guess if it is a con for some people, there is a lot of walking involved in most positions because they have such a huge warehouse.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Same advise I would give to any manager, just ensure you are listening to the actual concerns that are brought to your attention.

    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.

    Pros

    The coworkers are the best!
    Starting pay for night shift without experience is great! The benefits are a major plus!

    Cons

    Experience doesn't mean nothing 13yrs in a warehouse. U still start with the same pay as someone with no experience. I've worked for cardinal for almost 4yrs my raises have averaged to be about 2.50.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your experience people! How about a bonus for the warehouse worker and cost of living!
