    I have been working at Cardinal Health full-time

    Pros

    The people are great, they give their all to the job and are a pleasure to be around

    Cons

    Senior Management is all about who you know. They promote from within, only the people who agree with VP's. They pay on the very low end of what is acceptable and work you to death. A personal life is not allowed.

    Advice to Management

    Bring in talent from outside with proven abilities and get rid of the dead weight.

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

    Pros

    paid time off, some benefits and some co-workers

    Cons

    wow the politics in the facility is horrible. the management team has favorites even though they say they don't. no one you can talk to because the employees learn not to trust management or HR( it seems HR is more for corporate than the people). female employees learn to use the supervisors to their advantage. employee with English as a second language doesn't know who to turn to because of fear of retaliation (there's also people describing it to being like the killing field). if you voice your opinion you're told to quit because they don't want people with opinions there( it's their way) yes some employee was told their opinion doesn't count. they have team lead that shouldn't even be leads, they were desperate because all the good team leads left and needed someone to be accountable for that department. the pay isn't that great and the longer you work the less you make compare to new hires. employee was told many time that if you don't like it then leave in the beginning of a shift which is really stupid because you just ruin the morale for the whole night. no room for advancement if you only have a high school diploma or if you're not the type who likes to suck up. VERY STRESSFUL work environment when it shouldn't be. there's more things but you can read other peoples review. btw warehouse generalist probably give the worse reviews for a reason while people in upper management gives better reviews.

    Advice to Management

    stop promoting suck up or kids that has no knowledge or respect for their peers, all they see is a title and they think they can boss people around. don't put 3-4 years experience on a job opening and give the job to someone who's been for less than a year while the people who's been there longer and applying for the job get a chance to advance.

    Pros

    Large company that fills a much needed job in the marketplace. Teammates are wonderful and very giving of time and always willing to help.

    Cons

    No accountability for Dublin associates. Cosby does an about face and changes course way too often. MBT conversion was a horrible experiences and 16 months later still no access to data that was promised at go live. Too top heavy and not enough people to do the work. Penny wise and pound foolish.

    Advice to Management

    Get a reality check

    Pros

    Most of the non-management staff seems interested in doing the right. A few managers/directors also fall into this category.

    Cons

    Management continues to focus in on the wrong things; morale is the lowest I have seen. Continue to be pushed to focus on non-value add work that limits the teams ability to get the work done. After 20 departures, work is piling up and management is blaming people for not getting work done. Rumors of more layoffs just makes matters worst.

    Advice to Management

    Re-orgs don't solve problems.

    Pros

    There was adequate training, but the opportunities were slim.

    Cons

    Lots and lots of overtime without getting paid! Temps are everywhere and they do not like or trust leadership. This place can ruin your career. Very unappreciative people.

    Advice to Management

    Compensate employees. No bonuses and no career advice. No assistance with other people. No directives. Nothing!

    Pros

    I had a fantastic team and genuinely enjoyed the actual work.

    Cons

    There were bullies in the office that were never addressed; we had proof of certain people in upper management intentionally sabotage lower level employees they did not like and HR did absolutely nothing about it; I was expected to act in a manager role for 2 years (conducted interviews, wrote goals, performed the evaluations of department, etc.) without the proper job title or salary increase; at least 7 people were given secret promotions while the rest of our division was told there was a freeze on all hiring and promotions; One employee had health issues, but was out of PTO, when she needed surgery her boss told her she could not take any time off, so the next day she came into the office and ending up passing out and we had to call an ambulance - again HR did absolutely nothing. I could go on...

    Advice to Management

    Hire qualified candidates instead of your friends.

    Pros

    Being tied to the healthcare industry, there is a certain amount of stability with this company as opposed to other industries that are much more vulnerable to economic contractions. That being said, the dramatically changing landscape in healthcare can offer some challenges, but for the most part provides opportunity for Cardinal Health to become/remain a key player and find ways to add value.

    Cons

    Large organization that offers all the downside of corporate America. Bureaucracy, internal politics, political correctness, sycophants, and in general policies that supersede and ignore common sense. Just one big, lost in the shuffle, dehumanizing experience.

    Pros

    Good life-work balance. Location was a plus for me. Benefits were okay. Other than that, it was a horrible experience.

    Cons

    Pay is abysmal. They are paying $10-20k less than other companies for the same job. And for a company that size, it's ridiculous. They clearly cater to the just-out-of-college group. Lots of age discrimination going on. Lots of layoffs.

    Advice to Management

    HR should respond when the ADA is violated.
