    I have been working at Cardinal Health full-time (More than 10 years)

    Good Benefits
    Good People
    Stable company
    Cardinal Health ranks among the top 25 on the Fortune 500

    Seem to be cutting back on employee perks/fun activities.

    Advice to Management

    Don't forget about the Non-Exempt employees... the backbone of the company.

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

    Pros

    -George Barrett is a great CEO and is very intelligent.
    -Depending on what team you are on, work/life can be good.
    -PTO is fairly good
    -Food is above average
    -If you have a good manager, you are in a good position to succeed
    -Cardinal likes to keep people internal primarily
    -Cardinal appreciates and promotes diversity
    -Health Benefits are extremely good and relatively inexpensive.

    Cons

    -Many managers are unqualified and are in their position due to politics. If you have a bad manager at Cardinal, it can severely hinder your experience and career path. The number of bad managers and rampant poor management is a little alarming.
    -Most folks under the Director level are underpaid. This is not speculation, but can be compared to similar positions at comparable companies in the industry.
    -Communication and collaboration between teams is somewhat terrible. Granted, there have been efforts recently to remedy this, but when I left it was very much lacking.
    -Upper-level Execs are frequently given too much on their plate. Positions will get eliminated in an effort to save the company a bit of money, which results in one person taking on too much responsibility. This results in teams/products/etc suffering.
    -When the company is suffering financially, trying to find a new job internally is extremely difficult.
    -Top-level talent is currently leaving at a rapid rate
    -Whether they've had a great year or bad year, budget always seems to be very tight. Folks are constantly trying to solve problems or improve products/systems with no dollars, when in reality it's putting band-aids on severed limbs.
    -East Campus (Pharma) is much older/dated, while West Campus (Med) is new/modern

    Advice to Management

    Put the right people in the right positions with an appropriate amount of responsibility, especially at the Director level and above. Inter-team collaboration needs to be a priority for Cardinal. Expect to see the best talent seek employment externally if things continue the way they have recently.

    I would have trouble recommending Cardinal to a friend currently with the state my section of the company was.

    Pros

    Easy to get to with access to major highways.

    Pros

    Benefits and salaries were excellent
    Assignments and direction were clear though not always enforced across the board. Great atmosphere of diversity and acceptance was well promoted.

    Cons

    There still exists a great chasm between corporate leadership and the actual reality of day to day. The Women's Initiative Network is an outdated attempt at pretending to promote women with a derogatory assignment of male mentors to females who apparently need guidance to attain career advancement

    Advice to Management

    The efforts made to make sure that corporate is in touch with ground operations is admirable, truly- but still quite disconnected. Blanket plans for regions or the whole company do not adequately address the issues of individual locations. Perhaps an in field liaison who travels to operations and alongside customer facing staff would be beneficial?

  8. "Overall great company to work for but..."

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    The people are great and it's a patient centric culture. Benefits are good. The executive leaders of the company are inspiring and a pleasure to work under.

    Cons

    New leaders only care about themselves and have a 1980's style mentality. Pay is competitive, but on the low side and the SIP design is one sided and makes it almost impossible for anyone to make any kind of real money, despite significant wins.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the new division leadership. They are not aligned with the company culturally and are destroying the division. Look at your VOE scores... they tell the true story.
