Use Split tool without splitting overlapping input features

The Split tool splits input polygons where they overlap each other instead of just where they are crossed by the split polygons. This is frustrating because the tool help does not indicate this behavior. Is it possible to configure the Split tool to not split overlapping input features? Different tool or process? I attempted to create a model that iterates through each input feature before applying the split, but this seemed horribly slow/inefficient and I killed the process before it completed, so I'm not sure if it was even working. Thanks!
