    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.

    Cons

    Pay decent but health benefits abhorrent - you have 30,000 employees and you can't do better than 9000 grand a year combined cost and out of pocket on a HSA OR HRA? Ridiculous

    Pros

    It's the manager you work for or with that makes a difference in your work experience with Cardinal. Great co-workers, teammates. Career growth, benefits.

    Cons

    Not so much a con, however, make sure you network so that you and the value you bring are visible to the organization due to its size and scope.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Talent/ Career development is encouraged, make sure all managers are doing this for all their direct reports.
