    Work environment, work life balance not un reasonable. They do a lot for the staff as far as celebrations, lunches, gift cards to say thanks

    Salary not in line with other levels at similar industries. Way too much entertaining of BS. Micro managed to some degree and decisions questioned.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus more on the business and less on the hand holding.

    Pros

    The benefits and PTO from day one are great. Security is upheld and a major concern. Does the best they can to please their customers.

    Cons

    Management(save for one or two supervisors) tend to ask our opinion on things, then think that their own thoughts are what we said instead and go with that. Equipment needs fixed/replaced BADLY! 11+ hour nights back to back for weeks. Constantly changing clock in times with maybe a week at best notification. High productivity demands with low support. Will be penalized if you need to leave early for any reason, even if TOLD to go home due to sickness or even injury. Will be penalized if you leave ON TIME when there are routs left to be picked. Will NOT train those that are interested in being trained for different areas even if said areas are in dire need of more personnel.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    LISTEN to your employees, they do have brains, and one ore two MIGHT actually have a better idea than you do every now and then.

    Pros

    Cardinal is a great place to learn and grow. Staff was great, a lot of opportunity for internal growth.

    Cons

    Pay was not competitive, bonus structure not that strong.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Understand the types of people that are leading or managing. Some have been moved to positions because of behavioral issues towards others and are not properly held accountable.
