    Current Employee - Engineer in Waukegan, IL (US)

    Pros

    There is decent amount of paid time off given when first starting and the benefits are good. Most business functions have flexible hours to accommodate various schedules. Opportunity to work with a variety of product lines to gain experience.

    Cons

    There is a high turnover rate, unstable business units with constant reorganizations every few months. It is difficult for advancement and there is no focus on career growth/development. It's not a typical 8-5 job for marketing, sales, R&D, and quality units. There are several conference calls at nights to work with international teams.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to engage their employees to keep them motivated and excited to work for Cardinal Health.

    Cons

    You work constantly without ever getting a break. Your commission is never right. Work just keeps getting piled on every day

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start leaving your offices and get in the trenches. Actually talk to your employees and learn their names . You have no idea what is going on in the field

    Pros

    Benefits were good, opportunities for career growth were there. Employees are very dedicated to servicing their clients. Great education benefits. Leaders actively involved with business. Great training program.

    Cons

    Extremely hectic, leadership always coming in with last minute projects, requests or assignments. Upper management constantly changing. Vice Presidents and above are more concerned with their own career and advancement. Rarely interact with employees reporting into them. Excessive amount of red tape and standards. Poor HR support.
