    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.

    Pros

    Awesome teams, generally very friendly people, extremely balanced, care about your well-being, great vacation

    Cons

    Pay, organizational structure is sometimes challenging to work with, conservative

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As a low-margin company, there's not a whole lot you can do about pay, but maybe include more fringe benefits to make the company more attractive.

    I worked at Cardinal Health full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Mon-Friday schedule, inside work, some good team mates and supervisors

    Cons

    Constantly changing procedures. Procedures that need to be changed at DC level and customer ops that contribute to chaos. Job insecurity with threat of outsourcing of csr and other jobs constantly hanging over head. Work overload. Abusive verbal conduct on the part of Sales Reps (Mostly Field Reps, but even some Inside Sales Reps). Unreliable IT systems. Overly complex IT Customer Service software. Supervisors quitting left and right and even local Manager positions now on the block. Constant restructuring of customer service ops, can't seem to figure it out. Company showing signs of coming apart at the seams. Make sure your ventilation systems are free of allergens and dust.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay loyal to your American workers who have served you for years. Stop outsourcing jobs and hanging threat of job loss over you customer service reps and other employees. Work out the kinks in your current systems. Fix what you have instead of just jumping wholesale into new applications. Get DC's to complete Service Issues for credits instead of leaving them incomplete for CSR's to maintain on top of everything else they have to do. Stop the on-site kindergarten and grade school activities that reduce productivity. Your employees are adults, not children. Support your CSR's with direct supervisor where they work, not from a remote location. Stop talking out of both sides of your mouth. Stop trying to sell your employees on staying with you when you are ready to cut them as soon as you can by outsourcing their jobs to save a buck, because you are insulting their intelligence and they can see right through your double-talk. Put more people back on the phones and beef up back office employee numbers to take unneeded pressure and stress off your inbound reps. Create single-point contact area for credit and risk situations concerning customers. Get your credit department to apply payments asap to prevent order blockages. Improve your customer ops area to prevent new customers from having order blocked because of "risk" created by poor account setup. School your Sales Reps (Inside and Outside) on how to communicate with CSR's in the same respectful and professional manner you require of CSR's .
