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

Pros

Some of the smartest, most committed people I have ever worked with. The work itself is challenging and interesting. The benefits, especially the 401(k), are good as is the bonus plan (if you qualify). There are ample opportunities to create your own path once you establish yourself (if you are at the Manager level or above).

Cons

Work-life balance is non-existent in far too many roles. This is a large organization so politics and the status quo are deeply ingrained. If you are fortunate enough to have a good leader, you can do very well; if not learn to like your role or move on externally.

Advice to Management

Throw out the performance review process and start over. The review system does not allow managers enough flexibility to reward good performance and, therefore, often ends up killing-off the motivation to excel. Provide incentives to managers of large teams based on how well/often they promote their staff: if they haven't hired anyone worthy of promotion, perhaps the manager needs additional coaching.

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

    Pros

    Widely known stable organization with unlimited potential. Work that impacts others.

    Cons

    Large company so relationship building is key. Takes some time to work through politics, as with any other company. Small waiting period, 60days, for benefits. Not a problem, if you're healthy and watch your health; but may cause issues for others.


  2. "This is a large Fortune 500 company with a great culture and mission."
