    I have been working at Cardinal Health as an intern (less than an year)

    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

    opportunity to learn industry and regulatory quickly through consulting segment

    Cons

    Many are started as new employees "out of pay band" for their role. The segment is flat with silos in the organizational structure so it is hard to truly "move up" or “across” departments. Promotions do not increase pay accordingly, especially when moving to management levels. Leadership positions are blocked by legacy mentality or by the silo’s inherent to the organization structure. Billing targets are the only metric of success and incentive/motivation. No career development, continuing education, or training due to a billing driven structure.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider and value the actual voice of your employee. Talent retention and true talent growth/promotion from within is vital to maintaining your product which is the consultant and his/her knowledge base. No consultant equals no product and that leads to not meeting the billing targets.

    Pros

    As long as you're willing to conform, you will be fine. They value those that drink the cool aid and those that do not are quickly forgotten.

    Cons

    Independent thinking is frowned upon and unfortunately that outweighs results. Strange when taking into consideration that sales is a results driven space.

    Pros

    PTO, benefits, on-site pharmacy, very nice building and....that's it.

    Cons

    The pay is horrible and well below industry average. Upper management does not care about you unless you are a brown noser. In fact most won't even speak to you. Forget about getting a promotion too if you aren't friends with the hiring manager. It's all about who you know and not what you know here. If you don't look and dress like a model they treat you as if you are worthless. They have "re-orgs" every year and a half or so. Seems like they always move the good ones out and keep the idiots. Talent management is also a joke as is HR. Don't expect them to be there for you if you have an issue.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop playing favorites and learn how to manage.
