    I worked at Cardinal Health

    Pros

    If you are a competitive person you will love Cardinal the work isn't hard it just has to be done, and done at a reasonable time.

    Cons

    Sorry to say I was part time and time-off policies didn't apply to me but its easy to move up in this company just go to work and do a good job.

  3.  

    Ability to move up in the company if you're dedicated, but it's hard work.

    I worked at Cardinal Health full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Cardinal Health offered great medical packages, higher pay than most pharmaceutical companies, and the BEST paid time off package you could imagine!

    Cons

    A lot of long hours and weird overnight shifts, depending on position; ultimately nutrients into a "pro" because of the overtime you receive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sometimes the customer shouldn't be the top priority; the employee does.

    Pros

    Leadership is supportive and willing to guide your professional development. It is up to the individual to take responsibility for their own development plan. Great benefits.

    Cons

    Continually changing to adapt to the marketplace. Sometimes it is hard to get traction in with the amount of changes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reach out to all levels of the organization when developing strategy. This can be beneficial with the amount of knowledge and depth of relationships provided by the employees.

    There is heaving emphasis put on training, core values and ethics. It is a company that you can be proud for which you work.

    Pros

    The culture and ability to advance at Cardinal Health make it a great company to work for. Cardinal Health finds itself in the center of a changing industry and continues to evolve to keep the company relevant not just as a distributor or medical products and pharmaceuticals, but also as a business partner for health systems.

    Cons

    Simply due to the size of Cardinal Health, it is sometimes difficult to get direct exposure to senior executives in certain roles within the organization.
