    Pros

    Good People, you feel like your actually helping people

    Cons

    Management only sees you as a #. They really don't care if you're having personal issues in your life, if you screw up you're out even after working there for more than a decade. Attendance policy is strict.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees like people. Instead of looking for ways to push them out give them a chance to fix whatever the issue is.

    Pros

    Some of the managers will actually listen to what their people have to say, At times you can actually get real work done

    Cons

    Never know from day to the next who your manager will be, most managers have no interest in hearing anything that doesn't fully line up with what they want, having double digit management changes in three years without moving departments just shows the level of disconnect from senior to local leadership. Even if you are lucky enough to keep the same manager for more than a few months they will most not care to hear anything that you have to say

    Advice to Management

    Senior leadership say they are all about creating a positive work realm, and yet not a one of them will do anything to actually to do so. Try something different......actually use your core values as more than catch phrases

    Pros

    Alot of overtime. Decent pay

    Cons

    Management sucks. They only care about themselves. Their ops managers at this location (edwarsdville) are dumb.

    Advice to Management

    Terminate all upper management and hire some people who actually care.

    Pros

    Benefits are average
    You can work at night and work a second or part time job during the day

    Cons

    Cronyism is abound in management, more so than I have seen in any other company. My past manager had a "God Complex" and was totally selfish. Employees frequently made racially and ethnically sensitive comments. If you are a "Good Old Boy" Caucasian male, you will be rewarded and any mistakes that you make will be forgiven. If not, then please have a career backup plan ready. You will be undermined at every opportunity.

    Pay is below that of other companies but would not be an issue if the environment was tolerable.

    Turnaround is high (Hmmm I wonder why?)

    Advice to Management

    Good luck in retaining employees for a long period of time, except maybe the old retirees who have nothing better to do. CAH stock is doing well now, but in time worth will fall due to the lack of inclusion that management fosters.

    The work load is heavy and the pay is low for the industry. The comp plan always changes for the worse. Working nite & weekend events.

    Pros

    Good benefits available day one. Top notch Health coverage. Some decent coworkers. You have the chance of maybe growing your career here, if you're one of the chosen few.

    Cons

    Everything else. You can trust absolutely no one in management. They will fire you if you breathe the wrong way (I saw far too many coworkers fired over petty things.) it is a free-for-all on gossip amongst the management. They lie about your job role to get you in the door. No matter what you ask or say, you will be forced to take phone calls and be turned into a call center rep. Your bonus is 100% subjective and not based on your actual work or numbers.

    As if it's not bad enough to treat the employee poorly, they treat the patients even worse! I have never seen such a complete lack of care for human beings. Patients go weeks without communication from us on their medical supplies, but if you express concern to management you are reprimanded for questioning their authority. Seriously, go check out their one star review on google.

    It is in one's best interest to not work in the billing department. Do yourself a favor and skip this 'opportunity."

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. Don't run your business like a high school locker room. Communicate with your patients.

    Pros

    Six Sigma training and benefits

    Cons

    Management was poor and disconnected. Associates and supervisors were not treated properly or with respect. Process Improvement was never sustained. Hours varied into 12-15 hour shifts.

    Advice to Management

    Take better care of your associates. The order selectors are the ones who directly support your customers' requirements and satisfaction. If you take care of them then the order fulfillment quality will improve. Relax on the metrics and numbers. Six Sigma is a great initiative but not meant to be a feared tool among the employees.

    A salary, not much else

    Cons

    Management is awful. They are either being abused or busy abusing others. Nothing gets done. Human resources is an absolute nightmare. They actually try to make you believe whatever's going on is your fault and you have no rights to complain.

    Advice to Management

    Quit.
