    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

    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.

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

    Pros

    Our business unit worked from home 90 - 100% Found out I love working from home. Much more productive and better for work life balance which is huge. Both the company and I saved money as well. Highly recommend !!!

    Cons

    Our business unit was sold. In big business you never really know how long you will be employed by the same company. Any company really. I've heard not many business units utilize the work from home like this business unit did and I love it so much did not want to transfer to another business unit.

    Advice to Management

    Try more WAH "work from home" pilots. Respect is HUGE. Use it or get out!

    Pros

    While no company is perfect, I found McKesson to have solid HIT solutions, implementations, technical and processes. The people I worked with were very passionate to provide a great customer experience before, during and after the sale. Over all its a great company to work for!

    Cons

    A minor item to deal with is the HQ being located in Vancouver, Canada and the time difference can present a challenge but there are many ways to over come this obstacle.

    Advice to Management

    Great company to work for and management is very supportive to ensure the customer is taken care of 100%.

    Pros

    You're working towards an admirable cause at Specialty Health. The people there are great, and also the location is wonderful.

    Cons

    From the IT side... Some of the technology is old. You're not going to be working with the newest most exciting technology.

    Advice to Management

    There is a lack of young employees. Coming out of college, I sort of want to be working with people my age. Also, some employees really didn't enjoy it. One of them even told me to "Get out of here while I still can"
