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

    Pros

    cafeteria, free coffee , water and tea, medical benefits, plenty of parking, location is close to a lot of food places, area bars and the mall. Easy access to 270.

    Cons

    Low pay, constant micromanagement , antiquated attendance policies, poor training, in your face favoritism, definitely a clique mentality. You be a great performer but if you’re not connected to anyone people will speak well of you but you won’t be promoted.

    Advice to Management

    Let employees do their jobs and loosen up the rule book a little. A little flexibility goes a long way because policies are meant to be a guide not the absolute letter of the law.

    I worked at Cardinal Health full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great Benefits and 401k (immediate vesting at 100%, even their match).

    Cons

    Typical corporate micro-management and poor decision-making processes.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your salespeople. They are the heartbeat of any organization. Don't hire sales managers who have not sold for your company at least 1 (and preferably longer) year,

    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 The Women's Initiative Network is an outdated attempt at pretending to promote women with a derogatory assignment of male mentors to females who apparently need guidance to attain career advancement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?

    Pros

    Great coworkers that stick together under the pressure of upper management. Good location and good benefits. Positive impact on the end user at the hospital.

    Cons

    Very stressful and micromanaging environment. Little pay for the amount of required work and for employees with degrees. Management does not know how to perform the work that needs to get done but is very micromanaging. Lots of change in the Illinois area.

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

    Pros

    Learning about Generic Medication market.

    Cons

    Very Bad Pay unless you are lucky to build a customer base which takes anywhere between 9 month to a year then hopefully you can benefit for the commission based on how many account you have opened. Very Hard.

    Advice to Management

    If you want to not have too continually hire after 2,3,4 months then you have to find a way to pay a better hourly.

    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.

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

    Pros

    I enjoyed working at Cardinal. I had freedom to work from the house and make my own schedule. The healthcare business pays well.

    Cons

    Always changing and sometimes it had too many processes. People (inside) could not think out side the box.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your people! give them what motivates them, money! expected high sales percentages should be reviewed according to the economy.
