    I have been working at Cardinal Health full-time

    Pros

    Good benefits, healthy work environment, flexibility with hours

    Cons

    There's so much focus on the healthy and inclusive work environment that work could be done at a slightly quicker pace. But life is a marathon, not a race, so this may not be a 'strong' con.

    I worked at Cardinal Health full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The people were the best part of this job, minus a few people. Everyone is so nice and willing to help you learn if you don't know something. Its a really interesting job that most people dont know about or have never heard of. Its perfect for someone in between jobs. I was going to school online at the time and it worked out perfect for me. I loved the free time in the car just listening to the radio or podcasts.

    Cons

    Even though i loved this place there were a few drawbacks. The first being on call about every 5 weeks or so. This really sucked because alot of times i would get calls in the middle of the night and only get a few hours of sleep and was still expected to be in for my 7am shift start the next day. Another con would be driving in winter weather conditions, they wont cancel a delivery unless the freeway is closed and even then they might ask you to find another way. There were a couple times i thought i was going to absolutely get into a wreck due to weather conditions.

    Advice to Management

    I would really think about appreciating the Drivers more, my driver supervisor and techs were awesome and always nice. But the pharmacist were the only ones who kind of treated us like lower class citizens.

    Pros

    Benefits and flexibility go along way

    Cons

    It's hard working in the field some times. It's a struggle building relationships that way.
    Pay could be better, but that's at every company.
    Slow to change.

    I have been working at Cardinal Health full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Hours, all kinds of shifts throughout the whole day.
    Paid time off. You start with 23 days and max out at 38 days.
    401k contribution match.

    Cons

    They've been taking all employee recognition away, little by little.
    New CEO seems to be all about cutting cost which is taking away from employess
    Sometimes very long 10-14 hour shifts are required.
    Not the best medical coverage.
    A lot of "it's who you know, not what you know" when trying to move up.

    Pros

    Great company to work for. They want you to move up within the company

    Cons

    Finance department has micro-manger supervisors. Zero Based budget so things have got tighter within in the company.

    Pros

    Awesome on-site gym and classes
    Fast-paced

    Cons

    People rarely stay in a position for longer than a year or so. They might be moving up in the company but it is hard to find anyone knowledgeable when turnover is so high in each position.
    Depending on the position, there is a lot of burnout due to late nights and travel.
    Poor work/life balance.
