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

Pros

"benefits" such as health care, vision, dental; Java City, nice cafeteria, full gym onsite, many conference room options.

Cons

Low pay scale, and difficult to increase once internal employee
HR backs management and not employee; even with written documentation.
Reorganizes structure every year-difficult to master changing positions/new strategies (if they are known)--also equals position eliminations annually
No strategy or MBOs filtered down per year so difficult to perform job duties
Poor management skills in management and senior leadership
Leadership "cliques" that if you are not a part of, forget it--too much of 'kissing" up
Speaking up on why disagree even about something minor = fired.
Medical and pharmaceutical sides are treated as seperate companies when customer sees them as one.
Lots of turnover as employees get frustrated and leave

Advice to Management

Employees need to be aware to think across all segments of CAH not just M or P
Listen to employee concerns and consider that it may be the truth-don't automatically dismiss
Know that employees don't respect you as you may think, because you are why their job is frustrating and why they can't perform to their own standards as they want.
Include employees on more information instead of keeping all "high-level"

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Fellow employees were a joy to work with.

    Cons

    Never know when we were going home, Mandatory overtime. Rules applied to certain people instead of the whole building. Management will target you if you have an different view from their own and you will ultimately be punished for it. Raises are terrible!!!!!

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees like people instead of numbers. Make them feel like they are somewhat important to the company.
