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

    Pros

    I've found it a fair, respectful place to work....a very good place to have a career. Nice people in general work here. I work in corporate, so the experience in other parts of the organization might be different.

    Cons

    It is corporate and slow, though that is a feature of many large organizations.
