    Pros

    Great people. Offer mentoring programs. Cardinal promotes within (but depends on your leader). Great systems; use SAP. Health/Medical Benefits are average. Dublin headquarters building is very nice: workout facility; cafes in each side of the building, cube environment, clean, small break rooms, etc. PTO (Paid time off) days are great.

    Cons

    Base Salary - It's bad. Not consistent among the different Finance groups within Cardinal. Management doesn't care about what you make as long as you get the job done. I've only seen one leader fight to get their employees up to par with their peers.

    Work/life balance - Hard to see other groups in Finance (Accounting and EIT) have work/life balance and nothing be available to the FP&A teams.

    Bonuses - Anyone below a manager does not receive an annual bonus. This is not common for employees in a professional group such as Finance.

    Long hours - Expect to work at least 45 hours a week. You're not recognized for working extra hours.

    Everyone Matters Rewards - These are monetary rewards to be used to recognize employees for going above and beyond. Unfortunately in FP&A they are used in the wrong manner. I've seen them used to keep employees in their role rather when they mention they are looking outside of the company due to low compensation. I've seen them to used to recognize people for improving their demeanor. One last example, is seeing them used to recognize someone for saying they'll go the extra mile when later down the road, after they receive the reward, they don't go that extra mile.

    Cardinal is losing amazing talent because of not recognizing their true talented employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recommend looking at the employees not willing to "brown nose" management. These brown nosers are "yes-men". How can you make change by recognizing and promoting employees who are always in agreement with you?

    Highly recommend digging deeper into the groups to find the true talent. Reward those employees. Keep those employees. Because from what I've seen, you're pushing the wrong people out. I recommend randomly thanking them for their time and commitment with the company... why don't you use the monetary Everyone Matters Rewards for an actual valid and legit reason? That would keep employee's morale up and therefore get better output from those employees.

    Compensation needs to be evaluated. Highly recommend reviewing Finance departments. Finance departments are extremely underpaid compared to other healthcare companies.

    Again, Cardinal is losing amazing talent because of not recognizing the right people and making sure they are compensated well (including both base and work/life balance).
