    I have been working at McKesson full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Many options to work in various departments (speaking from experience in 10 years I've been in operations, six sigma, contracting sales and marketing). Very laid back culture with a great work like balance.

    Cons

    If you stay with company and not looking to move up eventually the pay won't be what you could get in other positions, but there is so much training and opportunity to advance you can keep up with market averages
