    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 have been working at Cardinal Health full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    competitive pay, relaxed dress code, nice facilities

    Cons

    Depends on the dept of course, but some areas tend to micromanage their employees to death. Also, a lot of areas seem to have very strict time schedules as well. Over the years I've seen the culture change a lot (for the worse) as the company has gotten bigger.

    Advice to Management

    Relax a little. This used to be a fun place to work!

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

    Pros

    -I had a great team, but some colleagues had horrible ones. Like any large company it really matters who your boss is.
    -Great vacation package, starting out you get 4 weeks
    -Good work life balance
    -I got to travel a lot, which I liked, but I know isn't for everyone

    Cons

    -It's a large, inefficiently run matrix organization
    -People avoid ownership of their workstreams and try to put everything on product managers
    -To get anything done you need to get VP approval. Managers and Directors have no real authority to execute their strategies
    -The CEO said he isn't worried about Amazon, but Amazon is going to put them out of business
    -It's a distribution company that's trying to be a manufacturing company, and it does not have the capabilities
    -The engineering department is completely ineffective and doesn't deliver products on-time, on-budget, or with the design requirements outlined by marketing. Overall, engineering is worthless, need to outsource everything.

    Advice to Management

    Get a new CEO and a new CFO (Jorge is an incompetent egomaniac), slim down the number of VPs, give power to managers and directors, don't integrate companies like Cordis, create a culture of accountability by getting rid of the martix

    I worked at Cardinal Health full-time

    Pros

    -I liked my job.
    -I liked my boss.
    -I was paid fairly.

    Cons

    -The company isn't doing well and they try to hide it.
    -They fire people regularly and on a large scale (even if you've been there for years).
    -They don't reimburse your tuition (even if it's in line with your job).
    -The department I worked in was against working from home.
    -They are cheap and claim they don't have the budget for anything, ranging from employees to office supplies to cleanliness.
    -They love to pile on work and don't care about their employees. You are just a cog in the machine at Cardinal Health.
    -No room for upward growth.

    Advice to Management

    Get your act together and care about your employees more than you care about money
