    Pros

    Great insurance benefits and salary

    Cons

    Culture: Everything is perceived as an emergency, extremely fast-paced, long hours, & not a team-oriented environment.

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

    Pros

    I could work the very late hours I had available. The investment matching and retirement plan was not bad but the health insurance was not impressive for a terribly profitable "health & medical" company.

    Cons

    Radiation exposure is inevitable and has a cumulative effect. Exposure to pathogens and contagion we're nearly as inevitable. Definitely does not pay enough for the risk.

    Advice to Management

    Share the wealth, quit having to replace people at an insane rate and having to deal with issues poorly paid, unengaged people create.

    I worked at Cardinal Health full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    There are some nice people working at Cardinal, but most walking around disgruntled and paranoid about their job.

    Cons

    High turnover, extremely low pay, and only choice for medical benefits is a high-deductible health plan. NO PPO offered.

    Advice to Management

    Change medical and offer a PPO, align pay with competitors, stop eliminating the jobs of talented, qualified people. Care more about your employees.

    Pros

    Easy job and the company has good benefits. My manager was great and flexible with the scheduling.

    Cons

    position was third shift, seemed to be more of a buddy system where advancement was concerned.

    I have been working at Cardinal Health full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Generous PTO / life balance focus. Interesting benefits include "College Coach" service. For those with children of HS age this is worth $3500/yr per child

    Cons

    Company VP's and above compensated for selecting "diverse" candidates regardless of whether they are / are not qualified. Completely focused on forcing reverse discrimination and promoting associates that "check a box".

    Unbelievably slow to make decisions and afraid to take calculated reasonable business risk for fear of upsetting suppliers / customers.

    For those who prefer decisions by committee and lack of accountability- this is a great environment for you.

    Advice to Management

    Make wise business decisions based on data and facts , not based on political correctness or what "feels good". The lack of accountability to shareholders borders on criminal behavior

    It's a climate control warehouse

    Pros

    Descent pay if you work a regular schedule .

    Cons

    Stay far away from nuclear division at Cardinal operations and Quality. They have internal battle issues at the corporate level so therefore extends down to local level. There is no work life balance and management does not care one bit. Corporate covers up huge issues and blames it on the sites. They tell you one thing and then act a different way. There is little to no advancement opportunities no room for growth. My advice is simply don't do it ! Technicians are not paid very well in comparison to competitors such as PETNET.

    Advice to Management

    Needs new management who actually cares about what is going on at the site level not just numbers and trends.

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

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, the PTO alone is much more than any company I've been employed with before.

    Cons

    Where to begin?! When I was hired at Cardinal Health I was told that the Cardinal location in San Antonio had been closed and all of their business had been sent to the Houston offices and to expect overtime. I generally have no problem with overtime but we were averaging close to 35 hours of overtime EVERY WEEK. When you're working 16-18 hour shifts in a non-stop moving job with steel toe boots, you start to develop a lot of physical problems. We had a lot of employees having to go to the doctor due to foot pain, I personally would go home with numb toes every single night.

    Management played favorites and allowed certain employees to call out or leave whenever they wanted to all the time, one night on a Friday we had a massive order load and were already short handed, upon being told that we'd probably be working a 20 hour shift, every single woman on the shift "went home sick" after the first break but then were bragging the following Sunday about how they'd all planned it and went to the club.

    Employees that had 10-15 years of experience were quitting left and right, hardly any of the new-hires stayed longer than a month, when I'd finally had enough, I resigned only later to find out that management didn't appreciate people quitting and leaving them even shorter handed. Please note, if you quit, you're not rehire-able for the rest of your life.

    Advice to Management

    Open another location to take the stress off of the Houston warehouse, don't ban people for life from working for your company because they eventually got tired of working 70-80 hours a week and having numb toes, feet, and legs from wearing steel toe boots. While Management gets to sit around and not do much of anything other than supervise their workers, their workers are killing their bodies and spending more time at work than at home with their families and deserve a little respect.
