    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.

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

    Pros

    They were very good about work/life balance. Many people in my area work remotely from a location close to their home or at home if possible. I felt they paid competitively and appropriately for the title and experience as well.

    Cons

    Upper-level management should involve mid-level employees in solving problems and leverage off the experience and knowledge each person brings with them. Certain situations could be better handled if they took more time to ask the opinion of their employees and listen to their clients' needs instead of immediately acting with a large corporate mentality.
