    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.

    I have been working at Cardinal Health as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great internship program really get to see other functions and all aspects of the company. If you are from out of the area subsidized housing is available at a local hotel in Dublin which really adds to the out of work experiences.

    Cons

    Do not always hire from their intern class but build up the whole summer that they will.
