    Pros

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

    Cons

    For 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 ManagementAdvice

    Listen 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.

    Pros

    The culture and ability to advance at Cardinal Health make it a great company to work for. Cardinal Health finds itself in the center of a changing industry and continues to evolve to keep the company relevant not just as a distributor or medical products and pharmaceuticals, but also as a business partner for health systems.

    Cons

    Simply due to the size of Cardinal Health, it is sometimes difficult to get direct exposure to senior executives in certain roles within the organization.

    Pros

    Working at the IT service center is a 9-5 job. You do not have to worry about it once you leave. Show up on time and adhere to a schedule, and you'll be successful. This is a good "stepping stone" job.

    You can telework after 5 years of working at the service center (in general).

    Cons

    Slow to increase pay.
    Difficult to move up in the company.
    As with any job it can get repetitive and you can get burnt out at times.
