    Pros

    Benefits were good, opportunities for career growth were there. Employees are very dedicated to servicing their clients. Great education benefits. Leaders actively involved with business. Great training program.

    Cons

    Extremely hectic, leadership always coming in with last minute projects, requests or assignments. Upper management constantly changing. Vice Presidents and above are more concerned with their own career and advancement. Rarely interact with employees reporting into them. Excessive amount of red tape and standards. Poor HR support.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Walk the Talk.

    Pros

    Paid time off and the people.

    Cons

    Raises are terrible, some people don't even get a raise,to much micro managing, to much lrts and six sigma practices that overpower the actual work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop being a greedy fortune 500 company that makes billions a year and slim down the six sigma and actually care about the employees

    Pros

    Good people to work with. Will allow people to come in and work their way up without having industry experience. Pay is better than average. Benefits pretty good overall.

    Cons

    HQ needs more insight as to what goes on and bring in more true leaders.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take time to carefully review the operation, people, and management. Certain areas are pulling the weight and profitability while those areas that are unprofitable are getting the resources. Although that is sometimes necessary, the length of time (years) this has been going on for is unacceptable. CARDINAL HEALTH SPD

    Pros

    decent benfits, ability to move up

    Cons

    work life balance leans more towards the company although they tell you it's important to them, too many products in your bag and they pull you in 500 different directions; sales reporting changes every 2 years but they continue to use bits and pieces from previous systems. Each vp wants a different report and it's all manual work. Paper work is a entire other job from 4-12pm. They have higher base salaries than most companies but they will pull from that number in your % to plan. Not every GP$ is created equal so you could make the company a ton of money but if it's not in the right bucket you won't make any commission but still support the product line.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Compensate your employees accordingly. once they get to the end of the stick and find out there is no carrot that's when people pack up and leave.
