    Pros

    Great benefits, great leadership team, great place to work if you work smart and can add value to the company. Good work/life balance.

    Cons

    Low pay increases and lower than average salaries. Not much room for moving up unless you move to different departments within the company. No proper or formal training, it's more learn as you go.

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

    Pros

    There is a lot of opportunity to move up. The company believes in hiring from within. If you work hard you will be recognized.

    Cons

    Decisions for positions can be political. Relocation is the only way to move up in the company. Pay is not as competitive as it could be for the amount of work required.

    Advice to Management

    Make the right decisions for promotions!

    I worked at McKesson full-time

    Pros

    Excellent guidance of company by CEO and top corporate executives

    Cons

    Not much job security - every couple of years the company downsizes and eliminates some positions, replacing higher paid employees with ones that cost less. It saves money in the short term, but removes a lot of experience from the company.

    I worked at McKesson full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Work Life Balance is pretty amazing. I never worked more than 50 hours a week. The benefits are pretty good. Gym compensation, 401k, etc. Pay was reasonable, but you can go out and get more if you want to work harder (particularly in the bay area). People are friendly enough, even though things move slow, the company is pretty bureaucratic, and the pace makes the place pretty political. Work is reasonably interesting, but you do need to spend a ton of time selling your results/socializing.

    Cons

    Big company, so pace is slow. Lots of meetings. Lots of people with manager titles trying to get other similarly situated titles to do things for them. Health insurance is surprisingly expensive for a health care company.

    Advice to Management

    Not a lot. I mean, it's a big company. It would be great if the company moved like a start up, but I don't know if that's really in the DNA. Still, a great place to get a great work life balance!

    I worked at McKesson full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Mckesson as a company treats their employees very well and has amazing compensation packages. The only reason I left was to go to school for nursing.

    Cons

    My local branch is very clicky and it can be hard to move up.

    Pros

    The company is leader in healthcare, fortunes 500. Many divisions you can work under. Pharma division is the leader. Technology division needs help with tools and resources for the employees

    Cons

    Most Management in the technology division are micro managers. Salary is below standard for project managers. Culture has cHanged for the worst, not trust

    Advice to Management

    Trust your professional employees

    I worked at McKesson full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Interesting assignments with involvement from multiple well seasoned, cooperative, and talented teams. Loved the opportunities for creativity. Great benefits. Partial reimbursement for grad school. Telework options with managers approval. Welcoming and helpful atmosphere. Nice office space.

    Cons

    Some managers have unreasonable expectations, such as working in the office during a snow storm. It's better to telework and trust your employees to complete the required task. Our team won an award when they let us work together outside the office and conferenced, when needed.

    Advice to Management

    You've hired exceptional workers. Give them criteria for a task. Enjoy the results.

    Pros

    Good at taking care of customers making sure all the work gets done accordingly and out the door and correctly. Good team

    Cons

    Micromanagement tracking everything you do. A lot of overtime. Every hour over 8 hours is not overtime pay only when you have been in the building for 40 hours you get paid overtime

    Advice to Management

    Employees don't like how much you control them
