    I have been working at McKesson

    Pros

    In this market it's nice to have a paycheck.

    Cons

    Old school IT thought process. Lack of communication everywhere: upper management, lower management, cross functioning teams. Everything is focused on cost cutting, but management does not want to hear from rank and file other ways of cost cutting. Forget about trying to implement change. No assistance on public transit, no cafeteria, no gym for new employees. Companies a lot smaller have more to offer their employees.

    Pros

    In medical technology, your average developer is going to have a lot of very crunchy and interesting problems to solve that are way outside of the eyeball metrics of many consumer fields. It's also a great place to get away from the rockstars, ninjas, and cowboys that densely populate the startup world. McKesson is also constantly evolving, so the cons listed below are more of a snapshot of today's issues. They're not as much of an issue as they were even a few years ago.

    Cons

    They're still evolving their policy on open source software. If FOSS is a big deal for you, that can be a con. There are also minor predictable issues working at an extremely large company in a field that is highly sensitive to privacy and security issues: many forms to fill out, and many regulations to familiarize yourself with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to evolve your policy for open source. Consider the goodwill potential in actively encouraging developers to openly contribute (non-proprietary) code back to the community.
