If coming you wont last more than 2 years

Pharmacist In Charge (Current Employee)
London, England

I have been working at Cardinal Health

ProsIf you are a pharmacist and want to leave community it is good because it gives you the opportunity to start in Industry, the job itself is beautiful if you want to deepen into Galenic Pharmacy. You are in charge of releasing creams, ointments, asepti products, and of formulating other products so you get a lot of experience and insight in the job.

ConsThe management is incompetent, very weak and no recognition to success, no flexibility in Holidays. They are starting to implement shift work and instead of making room for more people opening for part time jobs (mothers, students etc) they are loosing good people that would be able to work as hard.
There are a lot of secrets going on that staff is not supposed to know and this makes a bad environment in the team,

Advice to Senior ManagementI would make them ask for feedback from their employees

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Cardinal Health affects your wealth!

Analyst (Current Employee)
Romford, England

I have been working at Cardinal Health

ProsA mostly flexible working attitude.A generally friendly atmosphere within departments.

ConsThere are many! The chief gripes are that salaries being appreciably lower than uk and regional average. Limited career progression. Lack of quality benefits and very poor pay increases which do not reflect the effort, skills, experience and qualifications of the staff (particularly for those not at management level!). When researched it can be found that the average salaries at the Romford site are now in line with that of the uk pharma average from over 10 years ago!

Advice to Senior ManagementLearn to relate to staff needs outside of work more. Bring salaries up to uk average for the pharmaceutical industry to attract higher skilled staff and hence improve the efficiency and profits of the company!!

Must be ready and willing to move.

Senior Specialist Field Service (Current Employee)
Washington, DC (US)

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.

ProsAlright pay and excellent benefits from day one of hire. Some opportunity for growth. Sufficient training. Relaxed dress code and fun environment.
