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

    Pros

    Most McKesson Business units demonstrate the ICARE (integrity, customer first, accountability, respect and excellence) principles. This is a strong performing company - and has withstood many financial storms over the years.

    Cons

    McKesson will address business shortfalls and industry impacts with reductions in force. While this can be quite a negative experience for an individual, the company does provide a good severance package.

    Advice to Management

    Keep ICARE at the forefront of decisions and continue to build strong businesses.
