    Must be ready and willing to move.

    Senior Specialist Field Service (Current Employee) Washington, DC

    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

    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.

    Once you get swallowed up where do you stand?

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsVast array of resources career management.

    ConsHardly any training on career resources. Lots of acquisitions but sporadic cohesion. With large organizations like this it appears to be very difficult to adjust the trim of the direction of the ship into new directions and technologies. Too many levels of bureaucracy in order to get things done.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't just listen to your employees, set time tables of when things will get done. Invest not in their monetary needs but their personal workspaces and equipment.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Some good days, some bad days!

    Senior Analyst (Current Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsGood insurance benefits and paid time off, good growth opportunities. Depending on your role in the organization, fair salaries, flexible work schedule, friendly environment.

    ConsLack of communication, low on the salary scale (again, depending on your role in the organization), poor morale in some business segments,at times can run into lots of corporate "red tape" in order to get things accomplished.

    Consnot enough hours weekly and love to be able to move up in the company

    Advice to Senior Managementhard work, and dependability

     

    Cardinal is too large an organization for long term success. No synergy between divisions.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsIt depends who you work for.
    Some departments/management is good, others are poor.

    ConsManagement tends to blame the front line employees for failure. Benefits are fair, but should be better for a Heatlhcare organization.

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement training is needed on all levels.
