Job security is a problem at Cardinal. You never know when your job will be eliminated. Decent management, poor health benefits, liked the corporate work environment, but salaries are low and job security is nonexistent.

Cardinal health is a traditional workplace culture and environment. The people are by and large great and make working at Cardinal enjoyable. The industry is competitive and cutthroat. Sometimes Cardinal is slow to innovate and change, but by and large the people are always willing to do right by our customers and are respectful of their co-workers. The pay at Cardinal Health isn't as great as other companies in the industry, but the benefits (i.e. PTO, Health Benefits, 401K) are very strong
Great corporate culture, but like many corporations, slow to the move!
Data Steward (Current Employee) – Columbus, OH – February 6, 2018
I was part of customer services and I have to say that from my personal experience, like in many cases, the love and hate you have for the job comes with the manager. My manager was GREAT. He was understanding, but always stayed on top of things. I would follow him to fire.
The company is continually growing and currently is struggling with finding good candidates to fill the open positions. Cardinal strives to make sure that they provide the best service to our customers. It can be a struggle for the employees when there are many new hires to get them up st speed and this causes overtime which is hard on balancing life and work.

I enjoyed working here and was sad to have been laid off while entering my 5th year with the company. Had I not been laid off, I would still be working there and entering into my 16th year. I was sad to go.

CAH is an okay company but the management can definitely use some improvement. The benefits have their highlights but definitely disappointing with some of the pending changes starting next year and with what was removed for retirees this year (no retiree insurance options),
good people to work with, many employee activities, generous paid time off
insurance plans keep going downhill, no benefits at retirement any longer, management can definitely improve
Just as any place of employent u go to provide help with customers company growth

Very fast paced continuous inbound calls, Just wanted to get in and assist as many customers as possible. The better assistance provided to the customer makes the atmosphere better to adhere. Be supportive and open minded to learning
Lead Pharmacy Technician and Training Specialist (Current Employee) – Macon, GA – February 2, 2018
The typical day at work revolved around improving the quality of healthcare for our patients and providing them with their medications in a friendly, but timely manner. I learned a lot about 340b and its impact on our patient's financial burdens. The management at Cardinal Health has been nothing but phenomenal. They have always taken the time to answer all of my questions and have given me room to grow as an employee in my field. The workplace culture is inviting and diverse. I would recommend this company to anyone. The hardest part of the job is being able to keep up with the inventory policies that are consistently changing. It was difficult to find a balance on how and what drugs to order as well as through what vendor. The most delightful part of my job was to help alleviate some of the financial hardships our lower income and uninsured patients experience on a daily basis. We are able to build a natural rapport with our patients to the extent that they feel less like strangers, and more like family.
Great benefits, reasonable pay, excellent management
Sales Consultant (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – January 31, 2018
more time spent on the process than the results. Leadership was not particularly interested in development, only its own self-interest. When spun off to CareFusion, things were better in terms of culture, though the organization had significant deficiencies in accounting, often resulting in underpayment and lack of recognition for earned results. Once acquired by BD, things went from bad to worse...horrible actually. It is incredible that BD has lasted over a 120 year with the poor leadership, nepotism, underpaying, under-valuing of employees. I would not recommend it to anyone looking for employment.
solid company--with scale comes access
too many to list, but several in summary above. Poor leadership at the top of the list. Very self-interested.
