    Cardinal Health is a phenomenal company!!!

    Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) Sherwood, AR

    ProsThere is plenty of opportunity for growth within the company both professionally and personally. Cardinal Health does keep its promise of promoting from within. They recently started a Home Based Agent program in which employees are allowed to work from home to maintain a better work-life balance. The program has been successful so far and will continue to evolve where hiring and working from anywhere will become an option.

    ConsCardinal Health does pay well but doesn't pay based on personal performance. Hefty raises don't occur unless promoting, in most cases.

    Great opportunity for career development

    Sales (Current Employee)

    ProsCardinal provides tons of career development if you show the aspiration to move up. The company culture is among the best.

    ConsJust as you would find at any big company, people can tend to be negative and will take strategy execution personally if they don't like the direction of the market.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep recognizing the good employees and promote growth for those who show initiative.

    It is a great place to work

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    Prosbenefits are good and professionalism of employees in the field are great to work with

    Conssalary and politics in climbing up the ladder. Professionalism of employees in the office is sometimes "hit or miss".

    Good Company, trying to make changes,

    Consultant (Current Employee) Dublin, OH

    ProsBig company with lots of opportunity, majority of the Cardinal Team are trust-worthy and loyal, hard working. Company is getting ready to make significant upgrades to back-end and supporting technologies, proving they are willing to invest in their future.

    ConsIt is a corporation. Sometimes it takes a while to get things done that would appear to be simple, and easy to implement. Benefits package is pretty good, but they could consider stretching stocks/options to lower than management level

    Advice to Senior ManagementFigure out how to share best practices and talents. Remove blinders and see the bigger picture, help figure out and change IT cost center mentality. Finally, align goals further up the chain; upper management needs to consider the same goals when making decisions, otherwise you will continue to see sub-optimal results.

    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

    Acquisitions are positive but difficult to fully transition

    Senior Technical Support Analyst (Former Employee) Boston, MA

    ProsCompany is good at what it does and understands not to strangle its acquisitions. Core competences of target companies are left intact, which is not always the case when mergers take place.

    ConsNeeds to offer a bit more color on long term mission. Sometimes it feels as though you're on a the right train on the right tracks but the you're not real sure where it's headed.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKnowledge and vision needs sharing more broadly.

    Great place to work

    Sales Operations (Former Employee) Edison, NJ

    ProsTremendous experience working with a number of talented, passionate, and committed individuals. Received great training, mentorship, and opportunities for advancement.

    ConsLarge company that can have pockets of disconnect when trying to work with cross-functional teams. Was not able to fund/invest in tools and technologies to help enhance productivity.

    Innovative company with two cultures

    Senior Leader (Former Employee)

    ProsSmart people with generally good intentions. Innovative thinkers in the healthcare space. Good work-life balance and supportive of community causes. Strong leadership at top of the company, varying levels of quality leadership at the top of BUs. Excellent benefits.

    ConsHQ culture differs from field-based BU culture. Opportunities for growth are greatest for those at HQ; if you work outside of Dublin career development and advancement is more difficult. Company lacks diversity at the management level and above (race and gender, especially race). BUs tend to work in silos despite company's push for BUs to collaborate on customer solutions.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAggressively pursue greater diversity at the BU management level, it will help the company be stronger and grow faster. Focus on a unified culture and make employee development a priority. Task Presidents, VPs and Directors with employee development as part of their performance plans and measure their performance in this area twice a year.
