    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

    Their insurance has a vitality program to pay a large portion of your monthly insurance cost. It is easy to enroll.

    Cons

    They pile on extra work but only ever give 2% merit increases once a year. The bosses play favorites.

    Advice to Management

    They tell you there is a lot of room for advancement, but unless you are buddies with someone you won't get a promotion.
