    Stop throwing out the good employees in Waukegan in exchange for recent college grads in Dublin.

    Pros

    There is a lot of exciting change in the Healthcare industry right now, so the work here is never boring. There are many opportunities to move laterally or advance your career. Work life balance is strong with opportunities of flexible hours, work from home, etc.

    Cons

    Compensation is average and benefits are below average. HR will openly communicate that Cardinal does not aspire to be a top paying organization. For a healthcare company, the benefits package is expensive and narrow.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to embrace the work life balance to offset the compensation deficiency. Continue to keep employees motivated with growth opportunity.

    Pros

    co workers and a cubical, that's it.

    Cons

    This related to Harvard Drugs who is owned by Cardinal. You would never know it because Harvard operates as an independent company that does it's own thing. The cons start as soon as you enter the door at 10a. A non transparent bonus structure that you can not get a copy or take of a picture of the only published copy on the wall in a frame. Management...sad. It's a revolving door of employees and management. Don't accept their offer! Find another company.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing. You've heard it before and do nothing. Get rid of them, starting from with the Pres and V.P.

    Pros

    The culture of the overall culture of the company as a whole is good.

    Cons

    The NPS management leadership is not very experienced in managing people. There is very little effort put forward with helping career development or advancement. In addition, the management leadership centralizes there focus on the generation of revenue (which is primarily done because of their teams) and not really in creating positions in order to allow employees the opportunities to have longevity and advance in their current roles within NPS.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on hiring management with previous management skills in developing their team members as well as making sure they are given the very necessary training needed to know how to affectively manage a team of people.

    Pros

    I have been given many opportunities to learn, grow, contribute, and be a part of our community. If you enjoy change, you will enjoy working here. We are constantly growing, expanding, and yet at the same time looking for opportunities to improve our offerings. Great culture. You will work with people you enjoy and admire.

    Cons

    It's common knowledge that we are not paid as highly as other companies in the local area. However, the culture here is great, balanced, and our position in the industry is solid. We also have very good total compensation offerings.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to look for ways to improve total compensation and salary to improve retention.
