I have been working at Cardinal Health full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

You may see this as a pro - Very little management involvement with the sales force which means free time.

Cons

No Pay - No Growth - incorrect sales tracking - Poor Employee Attitude - Bad Customer Opinions

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Develope a pay structure that rewards sales representatives for their hard work. The current pay structure is well below industry standards. For a Diagnostic Specialist for example to be at plan and on schedule to make less than $100,000 per year is an injustice. For a sales rep to work night and day fixing company mistakes instead of selling and growing business and not make $100,000 per year is a joke. If your goal is to hire employees who work themselves to the bone and not pay them, you are doing a great job.

Yearly Salary fo a Sales Rep between $50,000 and $65,000 per year is below industry standards.
Yearly Salary for a Diagnostic Specialist at $70,000 is well below industry standards.

My advise would be to stay away from Cardinal unless you are right out of college or un-employeed.

    I have been working at Cardinal Health full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great opportunity with a Fortune 40 company. Great benefits and great industry...

    Cons

    Unless you are in "a circle" you won't progress. Also, not the best paying industry due to minimal margins.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wish they would pay internal employees to match market conditions and value to company. Took an OPEX Black Belt role after earning my MBA while working at Cardinal and was not compensated for enhanced skillset even when encouraged to do so by the business.

    I worked at Cardinal Health full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Great training programs. Aggressive company and good people there to work with.

    Cons

    Cardinal is famous for letting their experienced people go. There is constant change there in job titles, and they lay off too many people that have gained much experience there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too many people are placed on an artificial "fast track" for advancement. I've had more than a dozen people that I reported to in 12 years. Directors are promoted to departments in which they've never done that type of work. How can they possibly lead that team of workers? Cardinal needs to promote from within their department, so the people running the department knows what the issues are, and how to fix them.
