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

    Pros

    Hiring process was relatively easy
    Free coffee
    Steady paycheck

    Cons

    Lack of real career trajectory in regulatory publishing. Very niche industry and not a lot of room to grow skills unless you make management. Very political department. Manager has her favorites and only cares about input from them. Director is the same way. Lots of nepotism. There are a few bad apples who love to gossip and play petty games if they don't like you. Very cliquish, especially if you're a male, stay away from this group. Lots of micromanagement and control freaks running this place. You won't be treated like an adult. Don't bring any concerns to HR, they are very pro-management as is typical for a big corporation and will turn it back on you.

    Advice to Management

    Don't force people to attend birthday cupcake parties. Treat them like adults. Be more flexible and value people's concerns instead of brushing them off and doubling down on asserting yourself. Be nice to people even if you don't share their opinion or way of thinking. Diversity is a good thing.
