    I have been working at CareFusion full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    People are mostly nice and professional. The PTO policy is good if you've been with the company a while. (only reason I'm presently still at CF)

    Cons

    It looks to me like too many critically influential positions in upper management are filled by people who got the job because they knew the right person in Cardinal Health at the time the company split off. There just seem to be a lot of VPs, presidents, and directors in positions they aren't really qualified for and they're making a major mess of things. They don't seem to be willing to learn what they need in order to become effective. (It almost seems like they think it's beneath them to really learn how the business works) What's worse, the management structure as a whole acts like a parasite sitting on top of the organization sucking away all the profits that might otherwise go into invigorating the business and doing some R&D.

    Advice to Management

    Abandon the ineffective manage-by-numbers approach. This approach may work when managing sales people (this is where it comes from), but it is a recipe for disaster in anything that involves the more complex activities and skills like product development. It is also creating one of the most unhappy work places I have ever witnessed. Get to know your business and become focused on nurturing and growing it rather than sucking it dry and driving away all your best employees.
