I have been working at Cardinal Health full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

I learned a lot about the core functions of my career path. My Cardinal experience has been highly respected. Many interviewers and recruiters have said that have wanted to work there themselves and were impressed.

Cons

I was ridiculously underpaid.
 The corporate political climate was the worst I have experienced within my 8 year career.

Advice to Management

I don't even know where to begin.

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

    Pros

    Great training programs. Aggressive company and good people there to work with.

    Cons

    Cardinal is famous for letting their experienced people go. There is constant change there in job titles, and they lay off too many people that have gained much experience there.

    Advice to Management

    Too many people are placed on an artificial "fast track" for advancement. I've had more than a dozen people that I reported to in 12 years. Directors are promoted to departments in which they've never done that type of work. How can they possibly lead that team of workers? Cardinal needs to promote from within their department, so the people running the department knows what the issues are, and how to fix them.

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

    Pros

    Most front line workers REALLY care about the quality of the work they do and their customers.
    Good compensation.
    Good benefits.

    Cons

    IT technology is VERY poor.
    Many managers and above are bullies and foul mouthed unprofessionals
    Never a clear and sistained direction

    Advice to Management

    Clean up your act.
    Treat your workers with respect and quit lying to them. The financial situation you are in is your fault not theirs. You've made really bad business decisions!
