    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 Management

    Knowledge and vision needs sharing more broadly.

    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 Management

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

    I have been working at Cardinal Health full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There is plenty of opportunity for growth within the company both professionally and personally. Cardinal Health does keep its promise of promoting from within. They recently started a Home Based Agent program in which employees are allowed to work from home to maintain a better work-life balance. The program has been successful so far and will continue to evolve where hiring and working from anywhere will become an option.

    Cons

    Cardinal Health does pay well but doesn't pay based on personal performance. Hefty raises don't occur unless promoting, in most cases.
