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

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!

Advice to Senior ManagementContinue seeking your talent from within. If you canno find viable candidates from within, then we need to increase and improve training and educational opportunities.

Exceptional corporate culture

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Dublin, OH (US)

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

ProsCardinal Health does a great job at communicating with its employees and demonstrating individual value. Many specific communities within the company exist, giving employees an opportunity to be a part of unique, tight-knit cultures. The company is transparent about its activities and strategic direction. Better than average health benefits and compensation.

ConsDue to the nature of a huge corporation, it's sometimes difficult to find the right individuals responsible for a particular item. It's easy for people to point the other way and avoid responsibility.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
