    Pros

    Got a phone call took 30 mins, couple of days later got a walk in interview that took 20 mins. Was hired the following week. Asked for better than $12 an hour, got $12.91 cause started working after 12noon. Shift was 2pm to 2am

    Cons

    Had 5 different shifts changes for the 22 months I was there, the second shift is the worst you could get 12-14 hours a day. If you are single or have a strong family life this is a good place. But you need to remember the job is first your family is second. Too bad the mrg who hired me and the General mrg both were fired 6 months after I was hired cause every 6months they cut loose employees cause they blame them for the job not going smooth enough and not the upper management

    Advice to Management

    Have no clue how to help you , having major overturn every 6months from mgr to employees isn't right.

    Pros

    Cardinal PTO is very good as well as their Benefits. They are a company that focuses on many charities and encourages their employee to be active in them.

    Cons

    Everything that needs to be done to complete a task takes a long time. Upper management doesn't always listen to employees with better ideas on how to make things work. Constant changing of employees positions makes things confusing at times.

    Advice to Management

    Find what works and stick to it.

    Pros

    Many vacation days and a lot of flexibility on hours. Results driven culture that is okay with working remote or having strange hours if you get things accomplished.

    Cons

    Like any major corporation, tends to be slow moving. And they do adjust your salary to make up for the large amount of flexibility

    Pros

    Good pay. Good managers. Lots of learning opportunities in IT. Recommended.

    Cons

    Appears top heavy. Too many levels. Some messages are lost in the long chain from top.

    Advice to Management

    You are doing good. You foster collaboration among the lower levels. Some compressing of hierarchy may make you nimble.

    Pros

    People here have great values and always pull together to support customers and employees in crisis. Team members have "can-do" attitudes. The company also supports moving into jobs other than your original functional role, and promotes hiring from within. Within the last 5 years, has shown to be very supportive of women in the workplace. The company has a foundation that supports employees that sit on not-for-profit boards, and provides annual grants to support their efforts, and offers generous corporate matching gifts.

    Cons

    As a Fortune 20 company, it moves very slowly, and loves to operate on "standard operating procedures". Creativity is welcomed, but not always cherished. "We have never done it that way" traditional thinking is very prevalent. Corporate culture varies somewhat by location. Very title-level driven with regard to impact. Tends to pay 20+% lower than corresponding companies for many positions, but offers great PTO and flexibility options.

    Advice to Management

    Tap the creativity and skill sets of your employees of all levels. They will surprise you.
