    Pros

    Work/Life Balance is great as long as you get your work done, just like any other company. The benefits at Cardinal Health are terrific as well. Development within the company has been terrific for me as well. Lateral movement and taking on more responsibility can help propel you forward here which for me is what I like to see to develop my skillset.

    Cons

    The thought around being global is still new to Cardinal Health but they are making the right steps to get everyone to think on a global basis.

    I worked at Cardinal Health full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    There are truly some awesome people working there and the work culture is great in most areas. Lots of room for growth and development. Cardinal is willing to invest in their talent (most of the time). George Barrett (CEO) is very passionate about the business (in server the customer) as well as the employees and is very knowledgeable and well spoken. He has demonstrated great leadership and future vision.

    Cons

    Cardinal's compensation structure seems to be on the lower end of the fair market. Depending on the BU and it's leadership, clear accountability can be lacking at times. Recent downturn on the Pharma side of the business led to a large Reduction In Force across all areas of the org that could have been handled better by leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of arbitrary promotional pay bump limitations when hiring internally to better incentivise and hold on to talent at Cardinal. Continue to reward those that are top performers and hold accountable those that are not. Ensure senior leadership is providing clear strategic vision and openly communicating it down to their organization often.

    Be satisfied with your pay and don't cut budgets so that you keep it in bonuses for "saving" money.

    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.
