    Pros

    Mckesson was a good experience. Very strong company, constant growth, fair to above average pay, solid environment. Bonus structure is very favorable.

    Lack of overall innovation. Very slow moving company. Seems to be a good company to join when a more laid back environment is desired.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to invest in employees through rotating employees to create a more diverse culture.
