    Pros

    Vacation, communication, close management, voice of employees

    Cons

    Pay, limited schedule, and sometimes going by the book isn't the best route. When taking care of a customer, you should step out of your comfort zone.

    Pros

    They promote within and as i said the wages are competitive and fair. The leadership is doing what's best for the company.

    Cons

    Like almost all the big companies, Cardinal Health also has these bureaucratic procedures that slow things down and are not innovation friendly

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have been working at Cardinal Health full-time

    Pros

    Large company with multiple segments that allows for career growth. They tend to promote within and make it possible to stay with the company for a long time. Benefits are great (Health, 401K, PTO, etc).

    Cons

    Payscale tends to be lower than competitors but there is more stability.

    Former Employee - Senior Manager in Dublin, OH (US)

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

    Pros

    It is never boring. You can always learn something new. Ability to move laterally is also a great plus.
    Cardinal started to offer flex working hours which was great.

    Cons

    Leadership team is a joke. There is no connection between SVPs and up and the high level professionals.
    Everyone gets the same annual increase which is announced annually. I was there for 5 years in total and merit increase was 2%, 2% and 3% respectively during the last 3 years.
    If you rock, you get an additional 25 basis points. So 3% becomes 3.25%.
    Unless you play the political game, you don't and can't advance. There was a director in our group that noone knew what he did after he got promoted a year ago. That is how bad the office politics is.
    Also, health benefits are one of the worst I have ever seen.
    The team that I was part of had 80% attrition rate within the past 2 years.
    The last but not the least, Cardinal started to take away laptops. They decided to move into a cloud system and told everyone to bring their own devices.
    There were multiple layoffs during my 5 years. (sales and marketing got affected the most)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You are losing all of your talent. Does it occur to you why? You need to pay close attention.
