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

    Pros

    big company, nice facility (West) building, decent benefits (I would expect more from a company that makes so much money off the insurance companies backs.)

    Cons

    very little advancement possibilities, unqualified directors, horrible Top down Management, low wages, horrible HR

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring unqualified hacks to manage people. Stop supporting lies from senior management. Stop being so cheap to corporate employees and showing field people with travel, food and entertainment budgets. Actually LIVE the values, you just read them once at on-boarding meeting

    "Stay Away"

    Star Star Star Star Star
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

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

    Pros

    At least the company is well known. But anyone who knows the company past name recognition knows to stay away.

    Cons

    Not very competitive pay, lack of vision, and an underwhelming management and leadership team.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees and value them. Stop making excuses to be cheap and heartless to save money.

    Benefits, Pay, and that's it.

    HOURS, Hours and nor hours. Set up for success. No. Accountability. No. Standards. No. Follow through from leadership. No.

    Advice to Management

    Set standards for picking. Hold employees accountable. Get rid of bad employees. Have conversations with all shifts about efficiency.

    Former Employee - Quality Assurance Specialist

    Pros

    Great Health Benefits
    Really helping patients

    Cons

    Vice President of Quality is a liar
    You are salaried because they know that you will work well over 50 hours per week
    No support from corporate a little to no training
    No real career opportunities after this position unless you move outside of quality.
    Cliques formed at corporate leve hinder progress and blocks communication

    Advice to Management

    Support your staff. Minimize the Quality managers interaction with people; she should work with things only. Consider the sites that have numerous runs when deciding salary. Communicate with your employees to understand what is going on at a site level. Generalization of QAS responsibilities and time will vary by location. Training is a necessity not a luxury, you should probably provide some. At some point maybe you should look into why turnover rate is so high and stop making excuses. No support, very low pay compared to industry standards along with overnite hours will = resignations.

    Pros

    Fortune 500 company
    Great benefits
    Ok pay
    Stable job
    A lot of opportunity to increase your knowledge
    Good entry level position

    Cons

    For a company who preaches about equality I have felt like I was treated differently and sometimes even unfairly based on my gender. Also difficult to advance in the company.

    Advice to Management

    You have the right words but they don't match your actions.

    Pros

    Salary and benefits are ok. If you want to put out the effort there is a lot of self lead training available.

    Cons

    Very little work life balance. The company comes first and your development is self directed. Difficult to find time for career development, bottom line is all they care about.
