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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    Best reason to work for Cardinal Health was the decision to become Cardinal One and allow employees to add an additional 5 yrs prior work experience to their time within Cardinal. It allowed several employees the opportunity to move up a bracket and add additional days of vacation alloted each year.

    Cons

    Communication within each department is very one sided. Managers are allowed to share information at their leisure and therefore, important information is sometimes not shared or found out elsewhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow exempt level employees the opportunity to evaluate their Manager's just as Manager's evaluate their staff. Employees are not allowed to share feedback regarding the "negative" aspects of who they report to. Often staff is overlooked for promotions because Upper Management isn't aware of what is going on within the department.
