    Management needs improvement, lack of well-trained technicians, little to no adherence to business code of conduct,

    Resolve problems immediately rather than waiting for reoccurrences to pile up before taking action. Develop a more effective cross training program for all technicians of all departments. Create an onsite Human Resource department to handle all the matters unrelated to actual work and/or workflow tasks.

    I worked at Cardinal Health full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Having the opportunity to work in health care and in any way contribute to the care of patients is an honor.
    While Cardinal doesn't care for patients directly, there products and services are critical to the providers.
    Compensation was always competitive. Bonus and Stock Option / Grants are the key to long term financial rewards.
    Management is held accountable for managing their teams to achieve goals AND maintain a work/ life balance.
    People are treated fairly. In fact minorities and women may have an advantage as increasing representation is a corporate priority.

    Cons

    Rapidly evolving strategy in Medical Segment, where morale tends to be lower and turnover is high.
    Constant restructuring including layoffs to cut expenses.
    Pharma segment is the engine that drives entire organizations profitability. Growth is slowing.
    Executives tell you what they want you to believe, not necessarily the truth.

    Advice to Management

    Be genuine and honest --- especially at CEO level of Segments.
    Transparency has gone down over last 5 years.
    Stamp out the politics.

    Advice to Management

    Either standardize segment units or begin a more specific approach with goal setting
