    Pros

    Great company. Excellent work life balance.

    Large company. Success is created when you're able to break through silos.

  2.  

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

    Former Employee - Senior Nuclear Pharmacy Technician in West Allis, WI

    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

    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.
