      Pros

      Good to get your feet wet in sourcing, but after you get some experience take it elsewhere. Cardinal Health on your resume always looks good.

      Cons

      Grueling hours. The new SVP leadership has created a toxic culture with no transparency. Recently pretty much the whole org as laid off and everyone had reapply for their jobs – How insulting is that!? The pay is much less than other co’s (people have left for new jobs paying 10-30% more). It’s very manager heavy org so prepare to be micromanaged. Cardinal plans to return to work from office instead of home so factor that into your work/life balance consideration. The CEO is doesn’t fully acknowledge Cardinal’s role in the opioid epidemic (half hearted PR stunt to save the company billions in fines and lawsuits). The CEO loves to talk about the shareholders so that should tell you everything about leadership priorities.

      Pros

      Great work life balance Stigma attached to the name Dress code is very modern (casual)

      Cons

      -They like to underpay compared to industry standard and believe in their formula for 'promoting' (no one is promoted, you literally have to apply for a new job). The formula will keep you underpaid. They will hire someone from outside and pay them $20k more before giving you more than an 8 % increase. -They tout promoting women and have claim to embrace promoting women and equaling out pay-that's a lie. It doesn't flow down. -They hid all the pay bands so no one can see how underpaid they are. Luckily for cardinal most of these people live under a rock and don't realize the industry norm and blindly trust cardinal. -Continue to promote mediocre men and ignore women

      Pros

      You can tell that Cardinal Health cares. They invest in their employees and make diversity and inclusion a priority. They don’t just say things to look like they care, they actively strive to make this a great place to work for everyone. Leadership over the past couple years has changed for the better. Much more customer focused and more transparency toward the goals we are all working for.

      Cons

      Not the easiest place to advance your career. There are literally 6 levels - level 1 being an associate type of role and level 6 is the segment CEO... The problem this creates is a super unbalanced level of talent in the lower (actually obtainable) levels. For example, in level one you can easily find people just out of college and people with 10+ years experience. The titles are the same, but the skills used and quality of work varies widely. I wish there were more levels within the company so there were more opportunities to recognize, reward, and promote talent.

      Pros

      Medical industry is stable and company provides vital products and services. Great group of people.

      Cons

      Cardinal really got in over their head when they purchased the former Covidien sites. They didn’t realize how much capital investment it would take to keep old factories running well and have let the equipment deteriorate.
