    I have been working at Cardinal Health as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Great internship program really get to see other functions and all aspects of the company. If you are from out of the area subsidized housing is available at a local hotel in Dublin which really adds to the out of work experiences.

    Cons

    Do not always hire from their intern class but build up the whole summer that they will.

    Pros

    It's the manager you work for or with that makes a difference in your work experience with Cardinal. Great co-workers, teammates. Career growth, benefits.

    Cons

    Not so much a con, however, make sure you network so that you and the value you bring are visible to the organization due to its size and scope.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Talent/ Career development is encouraged, make sure all managers are doing this for all their direct reports.
