    Pros

    Good benefits, company invests in tools and training to help employees, compensation is adequate but nothing to rave about. Great amount of paid time off.

    Cons

    Hard to advance, lots of politics to the company, low level employees are poorly compensated. Paid time off never rolls over, cannot be cashed out. Consistently short staffed, profit not shared with all employees except through annual 401(k) contribution. No real rewards for exceptional performance outside occasional spot bonuses and small annual increases.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show the core employees which are the face of your business that you do care about them. The feel is that entry level employees in NPS can be easily replaced and are not valued based on the low starting wages and minimal annual increases. There should be more compensation (bonuses) tied to the performance of the location/business unit/department for all to share in the wealth not just higher level management.

    Pros

    Vacation, communication, close management, voice of employees

    Cons

    Pay, limited schedule, and sometimes going by the book isn't the best route. When taking care of a customer, you should step out of your comfort zone.

    I worked at Cardinal Health

    Pros

    They promote within and as i said the wages are competitive and fair. The leadership is doing what's best for the company.

    Cons

    Like almost all the big companies, Cardinal Health also has these bureaucratic procedures that slow things down and are not innovation friendly

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the individual contributors

    I have been working at Cardinal Health full-time

    Pros

    Large company with multiple segments that allows for career growth. They tend to promote within and make it possible to stay with the company for a long time. Benefits are great (Health, 401K, PTO, etc).

    Cons

    Payscale tends to be lower than competitors but there is more stability.

    Pros

    Besides being employed, I can't think of a pro...

    Cons

    Work - life balance doesn't exist at all. It feels like a cult more than it feels like a job.

    I worked at Cardinal Health full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The only pro is the pto time

    Cons

    All the supervisors are bullies along with the mangers and team leads the only people that are treated good is their favorites at the montgomery facility is useless and the work life balance sucks along with the raises and the work life balance is not good

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Corporate needs to make surprise vist to the montgomery ny facility or send someone undercover so the can see how badly the workers are treated

    I worked at Cardinal Health

    Pros

    very good benefits, good pay

    Cons

    Very poor leadership from Corporate down to the call centers in KY and AR the results are that the Managers, Supervise and Support personnel not to mention the CSR's are over worked and very unappreciated by the people that are in a position to make this situation better, worst of all there is a pervasive feeling that you do not matter and are extremely expandandable stop outsourcing

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at how your company was doing and the culture that existed three years ago and look at it now, Put down the spreed sheets and your charts step back for a moment and listen to your employees they are what makes your company either fly like an eagle or end up tearing itself apart, you have a lot to do with that outcome Cardinal health can again be a great place to be and work
