I worked at McKesson full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Excellent pay
Great opportunities to grow
Work/Life balance highly regarded
Community outreach very important to the company

Cons

Low and mid level managers are usually chosen from project managers or sales pool.
They were good salesmen and project managers but poor managers.
Mckesson has the belief that you can make someone a good manager of people.
Management has an almost royalty self worth.

Advice to Management

Learn the difference between someone who is competent at their job and someone who is a good people manager.
Leadership can be taught but not everyone can learn it.

    I have been working at McKesson full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There is a lot of talented people who work for McKesson; very respectful culture where employees are incented to be cooperative and collaborative. Very efficient and well-run company with a mature infrastructure. Company really invests in its employees in training and in its health programs.

    Cons

    Work-life balance not as good as it should be; top heavy in senior management with not enough people at the manager level to do the work (employees spread thin).

    Advice to Management

    In times of rapid internal change, be sure to preserve McKesson's great culture - that is its biggest asset in attracting talent.
