    Pros

    The culture and ability to advance at Cardinal Health make it a great company to work for. Cardinal Health finds itself in the center of a changing industry and continues to evolve to keep the company relevant not just as a distributor or medical products and pharmaceuticals, but also as a business partner for health systems.

    Cons

    Simply due to the size of Cardinal Health, it is sometimes difficult to get direct exposure to senior executives in certain roles within the organization.

    Pros

    Working at the IT service center is a 9-5 job. You do not have to worry about it once you leave. Show up on time and adhere to a schedule, and you'll be successful. This is a good "stepping stone" job.

    You can telework after 5 years of working at the service center (in general).

    Cons

    Slow to increase pay.
    Difficult to move up in the company.
    As with any job it can get repetitive and you can get burnt out at times.

    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.
