    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.

    Pros

    Good company, good benefits, lots of opportunities around the country and around the world. Fortune 15 company that really wants to retain current employees.

    Cons

    Gives lip service to promoting diversity but makes very little progress in accomplishing a diverse environment especially in management, very difficult to advance based on merit in my experience, company-wide communication lacking

    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.

    Pros

    Great Company, if you have to work McKesson is a good place to do it. Wonderful down to earth upper management. Lots of learning opportunities. Things are changing all of the time. Employees have the opportunity to join teams/groups that effect real change. McKesson has been around for 180+ years and it is a huge corporation. The management is always striving to make things work better for everyone which in turn helps the bottom line.

    Cons

    There are a few cons but I can't think of anything at the moment.

    Advice to Management

    Bring back lower priced health insurance coverage. I know this is a pipe dream with the way the world is now.

    Fortune 5 company, salaries are fair, benefits are fair, possibilities and training to increase your skill set.
