    Pros

    Lots of resources and great training. There are many opportunities for hungry employees (if you work in a main office)

    Having to deal with red tape and politics. Not many opportunities if you work remotely ore in a satellite office

    Get rid of the fat and promote the right person for the right job

    Pros

    Large company that cares about their employees. We spend money one technology.

    Cons

    We treat M&A companies like they do not know anything. We are rigid in our ways.

    Advice to Management

    Tell our employees to listen to the employees of the M&A companies. They know their systems better then we do.

    I worked at Cardinal Health part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Pay is minimum wage, but benefits are great and the people are awesome and close knit. Some of the benefits include tuition reimbursement and two weeks of paid vacation right when you get hired.

    Cons

    I think the pay should be more in the $15-$20 range to prevent turnover of employees and retain them.

    - Decent Benefits
    - On-site cafeterias and gym for FTEs

    Cons

    - Typical corporate environment and politics
    - Somewhat difficult to advance if you don't start in a position that will set you up to do so
    - Management styles and aptitudes can vary widely, even within the same department

    Pros

    If you're a go getter and want to make a difference this is the place for you. This place is fast paced and full of change.

    The pressures of Wall Street can put a strain on morale.

    I have been working at Cardinal Health full-time

    Pros

    Working for such a large company allows for established tiers, organizing where the work should be distributed.

    Cons

    Because the company is so large, in general, at least in my experience, some processes take a while to occur, such as hiring or implementing new processes within a department.

    Pros

    Company has great benefits, salary/hourly pay is at, or above industry standards. Lots of opportunity for advancement. CAH feels like a family.

    Cons

    I honestly can't think of any cons. It is a great company with mostly great upper management. The company puts a lot of effort into making sure they hear the voice of the employee and try to correct any blaring issues that come out of the yearly survey that they publish.

    Advice to Management

    I think the whole company should move towards quarterly reviews. The IT Service Center was the test pilot and it was so refreshing to work through the high/lows as they arise with your supervisor on a quarterly basis instead of once a year. It's difficult to try and remember all the high/low points of the year. Also, George Barrett is the best, it was a privilege to work under his excellent leadership.
