    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.

    I worked at McKesson full-time

    Pros

    McKesson has great benefits and excels in Diversity and inclusion.

    Cons

    as a corporation they tend to layoff and reorg often.

    Advice to Management

    new leadership should have a set of metrics only to be graded by their team. There is some "bully leadership" going on across the departments. But, who ya gonna tell? HR is for McKesson, not the employee.

    I have been working at McKesson full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great team collaboration and lots of opportunities to advance within the organization. Incredible training tools and leadership resources developed for self improvement-growth.

    Cons

    Large company that can be political at times. Slow in adjusting to market changes. Focused heavy on growth numbers at the expense of other contributions. It is a performance based company so numbers are important. This is not necessarily a con, but more of a fact.

    Advice to Management

    Remove red tape processes to speed up ability to make adjustments to market changes and customer needs.

    I worked at McKesson full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Friendly, supportive place to work. Management is very supportive of work-life balance, and of career development.

    Cons

    Not clear what McKesson's commitment is to the IT business area, since it is not there core business, and has not done as well in the market as it seems upper management would like.

    Advice to Management

    Don't lay people off at a time when their expertise is needed for critical projects.How can you expect employees to remain committed to you, when you don't seem to be committed to the work that they are doing?

    I worked at McKesson full-time

    Pros

    McKesson bought out the smaller medical supply company I worked for. We were all worried we would lose our jobs; however, they did a good job at restructuring and shifting positions around so that employees didn't lose their jobs.

    Cons

    The culture and environment was uninviting.

    Advice to Management

    Work with employees to find training and development to ensure growth.
