Challenging, need thick skin!

Customer Service Representative (Current Employee)
Toronto, ON

I have been working at Cardinal Health full-time for more than a year

ProsOverall team is great, always have the chance to learn more.

ConsFor a healthcare company the pay is low management needs more training lack of moral, they push employees to the point where some people have nightmares if the place. Lots of micromanaging one must be ready for lack of communication.

Very high turn over

Advice to Senior ManagementListen to the people in the floor who deal with the customers daily, stop making changes that only cause more grief. No equality lots of favouritism no employee functions. Overall for a large organization you'd expect so much more but all you have is employees you come to work to look for work.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Innovative company with two cultures

Senior Leader (Former Employee)

I worked at Cardinal Health full-time for more than 3 years

ProsSmart people with generally good intentions. Innovative thinkers in the healthcare space. Good work-life balance and supportive of community causes. Strong leadership at top of the company, varying levels of quality leadership at the top of BUs. Excellent benefits.

ConsHQ culture differs from field-based BU culture. Opportunities for growth are greatest for those at HQ; if you work outside of Dublin career development and advancement is more difficult. Company lacks diversity at the management level and above (race and gender, especially race). BUs tend to work in silos despite company's push for BUs to collaborate on customer solutions.

Advice to Senior ManagementAggressively pursue greater diversity at the BU management level, it will help the company be stronger and grow faster. Focus on a unified culture and make employee development a priority. Task Presidents, VPs and Directors with employee development as part of their performance plans and measure their performance in this area twice a year.

Must be ready and willing to move.

Senior Specialist Field Service (Current Employee)

I have been working at Cardinal Health full-time for more than 3 years

ProsMany opportunities are found with Cardinal Health. You simply must be ready to put in the work, and to move where the opportunities are.

ConsMost of our locations are no where you want to live!
