    Pros

    Large, very carefully managed company. Very well-funded and very stable.

    Cons

    The Medical-Surgical division was too reliant on charismatic leadership styles of top-level management. These individuals were good, strong leaders, but the VP-level of management watched the top executives' and tried too hard to also be charismatic leaders (most of that VP/Director-level cadre didn't have the "mojo" to pull it off so their predominant management style became a nasty flavor of command-and-control. There was also a bad habit of shifting responsibility for MBOs to the next level down - and even trading MBO shifting within each other's "silos" to further avoid accountability -- without sharing the credit of reward; this was especially prevalent in Primary-Care and Long-Term Care VPs of Sales).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consolidate management and operations of McKesson Medical-Surgical to one location (having it co-located in both Richmond & Minneapolis gives two different corporate cultures). Dilute the "charismatic" style and demand accountability at the VP-level, especially within sales (that means VPs are responsible to accomplish their own goals from within their own direct-reports).

    Good company, but differs greatly based upon region and/or division.

    Pros

    Great company in all areas of healthcare.

    Cons

    Management in the midwest micro-manages more than most other regions. Opportunity for advancement depends on how buddy buddy you are with Sr. Management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Understand that each state/region present different opportunities.
