    Pros

    Great culture. Work/life balance. Great coworkers. Ability to grow knowledge. Fun activities and events.

    Cons

    To increase salary a decent amount, you must leave the company and come back. They do not do an industry analysis and adjust wages if you are employed long-term.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up with industry compensation to keep your best employees as the company. An employee shouldn't have to ask to get a competitive wage.

    I worked at Cardinal Health full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Excellent benefits. Wonderful facilities and extra perks connected to other companies in the area

    Cons

    It's such a massive company, it's easy to get overlooked. Lots of upheaval in middle management when I was there made it difficult to lock into goals.
    The Customer Service was mostly an afterthought or dumping ground for tasks the other execs didn't want to do.

    Advice to Management

    Department-by-department can vary wildly because it's so huge. Make sure you listen to what your teams are saying and understand that lower level does not mean incompetent

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

    Pros

    Company has great benefits, salary/hourly pay is at, or above industry standards. Lots of opportunity for advancement. CAH feels like a family.

    Cons

    I honestly can't think of any cons. It is a great company with mostly great upper management. The company puts a lot of effort into making sure they hear the voice of the employee and try to correct any blaring issues that come out of the yearly survey that they publish.

    Advice to Management

    I think the whole company should move towards quarterly reviews. The IT Service Center was the test pilot and it was so refreshing to work through the high/lows as they arise with your supervisor on a quarterly basis instead of once a year. It's difficult to try and remember all the high/low points of the year. Also, George Barrett is the best, it was a privilege to work under his excellent leadership.
