    I have been working at McKesson full-time

    Pros

    The company has strong values and does take employee development seriously. Work life balance is generally good but can vary greatly between departments.

    Cons

    The wholesale pharmaceutical industry is really struggling and the future is unclear. There has been no clear guidance from upper management on what is being done to course correct or adapt.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure you listen to the voice of your customers and your employees. Recognize that there are some significant gaps in leadership in some of your departments.

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

    Pros

    McKesson is a large company, with a range of business silos. I worked in their Health IT business, and found my time there (10yrs) to be some of the most fulfilling of my career. Challenging, with room to grow and opportunities to advance on your merits. Great infrastructure and access to tools, benefits, and education/training opportunities.

    Cons

    McKesson has shifted away from IT with recent product divesting and further consolidation of their primary distribution businesses (pharma, med/surge, lab supply). If you're interested in jobs in those areas, it's a great company to work for.
