    Pros

    Cardinal is a great place to learn and grow. Staff was great, a lot of opportunity for internal growth.

    Cons

    Pay was not competitive, bonus structure not that strong.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Understand the types of people that are leading or managing. Some have been moved to positions because of behavioral issues towards others and are not properly held accountable.

    I worked at Cardinal Health full-time

    Pros

    Tremendous job at providiing strategic vision and roadmap for each fiscal year. Lots of opportunity to network across multiple specialties within the healthcare market.

    Cons

    Be prepared to roll up your sleeves and work hard to make the necessary impact, but also know that you'll gain a diverse skill set which will lend to promotions and/or job changes as you grow your career.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work harder to retain good talent. And should they leave to explore options outside of Cardinal Health, don't hesitate to reach back out to bring them back into the family culture. There's much to be said of those who understand the industry trends, have the network within the company and can make a positive impact.

    Pros

    Excellent culture, benefits, and work environment. Leadership is strong and hierarchy is decentralized. Very flexible working schedule and realistic goals and expectations.

    Cons

    It's a big company so like other big companies can be difficult to move through the red tape and identify key decision makers. Company is growing through acquisition adding complexities.
