    I have been working at McKesson full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company employs people who truly care about people. Their core values match mine and it's important to me that I work for a company I believe in. McKesson is growing and offers a career path that allows me to grow with the company, rather than stay stagnant in a dead-end role.

    Cons

    Their social media presence is really in infancy and needs further development.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It impresses me that senior leaders take to the time to interact with the team. At other organizations I haven't experienced ope door policies with key decision-makers.

    I worked at McKesson

    Pros

    Great company. Had many growth opportunities during my tenure.

    Cons

    Company continues to reduce workforce with little consideration to impact on workforce. Much of this is due to focus on reducing costs and continued changes in Management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on current employees and push back on workforce reductions if current staff cannot streamline or reduce workload.

    Pros

    Flexibility in many roles that allows some people to work from home.
    Well known, respected brand.
    Huge company, so lots of room to move around- at least laterally.

    Cons

    Seems difficult to move around up from the inside.
    Salaries OK
    Work life/balance is not a priority
