Pros

They truly believe in their mission to make health care safer and more productive.
The time off and other benefits are outstanding.
They have the foresight to invest in operational excellence.

Cons

Many areas of the business are still driven by the "good old boy" network.
Much of their success is related to expense control and not revenue growth.
They talk the talk on operational excellence but they don't walk the walk.
The stock value has been stagnant for such a long time it is difficult to build any wealth through equity awards.
Performance metrics for individual business units are soft, self defined, self reported and easily gamed.

Advice to Management

Stop running the technologies and services business like the low margin distribution business.

    Pros

    Cardinal is a very large and stable corporation that is continuing to grow. Their benefits package is very employee friendly and is better than most companies. If you want to advance at Cardinal Health you better be ready to play the political game on a daily basis as it is a large part of the culture. Other than that it is a great place to work with more than ample opportunities to continue your career advancement. The other employees at Cardinal are very friendly and always willing to help out when needed, Cardinal is a great family oriented place to work.

    Cons

    There is a real political feel about the way situations are handled that can be daunting to those that are not ready for it. Management can also be slow to make needed improvements in policies and procedures.

    Advice to Management

    There seem to be a lot of changes that are made just to make changes and not with good reasoning behind them.

    Pros

    Big Company.. lot's of money to spend. Haven't experienced ridiculous penny pinching, YET. Overall its a good company... the best I've worked at so far. As long as you dig heads down and shut-up along with a steady paycheck you're good... what else is there really?

    Cons

    Big Company... often isolated and detached form other business units. IT support is a joke... shared services model. Probably could do with getting rid of poor performers a little more... though they might very well have their hands tied by the people's republic of California.

    Advice to Management

    Get down in the trenches and smell the dirt... same as anywhere else though. Personally, I see a need for management to become more detail oriented and empathetic to realities and complexity of mundane daily business processes. Making the "white board" come to life takes more work and time than drawing it with markers. Like I said pretty much the same everywhere I've been... BONUS FIRST!
