    Pros

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

    Cons

    Just 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 ManagementAdvice

    Keep recognizing the good employees and promote growth for those who show initiative.

    Pros

    Company 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.

    Cons

    Needs 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 ManagementAdvice

    Knowledge and vision needs sharing more broadly.

    Pros

    Many opportunities are found with Cardinal Health. You simply must be ready to put in the work, and to move where the opportunities are.

    Most of our locations are no where you want to live!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue seeking your talent from within. If you canno find viable candidates from within, then we need to increase and improve training and educational opportunities.

    Pros

    Cardinal Health provides a generous benefit package. There is a great sense of community and culture of diversity and inclusion. We get to see how our work benefits patients. Most of the people are collaborative and honest. Freedom to stretch and learn. Many opportunities to travel and transfer within the comapny.

    Cons

    Salary compensation is not highest end. There are some decisions that seem heavy handed by the corporate establishment. Need to update system infrastructure. Mid level managers work too, hard too much.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make it easier for us to do business with our customers and we will dominate the market.
