    Pros

    Overall there is a good corporate culture at McKesson.

    Cons

    The people who actually do the work do not ever get recognized for it.

    Advice to Management

    Spread bonuses to everyone, not just management. Don't just reward yourselves for all the work the people under you do.

    Pros

    Great company culture for how big they are. They work towards it as a priority. Nice people to work with that really care. Great pay and benefits.

    Cons

    Fortune 5 company that operates smaller silos that need to be more efficient with processes and communication. Too many hands in the pot so to speak. Goes through too many acquisitions and layoffs in my experience and remote employees and certain departments do not get much recognition beyond your primary manager (if that is important to you).

    Advice to Management

    Allow remote employees to work from home. They don't get office benefits like the corporate office, so let them stay home if they want. It would be a nice perk in adding flexibility and work life balance. Remote employees are a wave of future employment for global companies ( Look at Automatic and Buffer) and McKesson is working towards deleting that model.
