    Pros

    Good benefits, the people, casual dress

    Cons

    Upper Mgmt doesn't have a clue what they are doing. Their answer to their missteps is to lay innocent people off.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to the worker bees, not to a bill of good told to you. A lot of great people have been dismissed. Not good for moral.

    Pros

    Mckesson has a decent 401k. It's to bad that this is our retirement which may not be there when it's time to retire.

    Cons

    You never know from one day to the next how management will treat you.
    If you have been with mckesson for more than 10 years you still get treated as if you just walked in the door.

    Advice to Management

    Please show more respect to your long time employees.

    I worked at McKesson full-time

    Pros

    Worked in McKesson Specialty Health office in Mission-SF. Nice company with solid core principles (ICARE and ILEAD). Managers are really easy to work with and not a lot of pressure. Good work-life balance.

    Cons

    Compensation was below market average compared to other companies with similar job title/responsibilities.
    Career paths were hard to establish because it's a such a large company and would require to relocate to a different McKesson location because of a certain career you wanted to follow. McKesson is no longer really a company of innovation. They just grow through acquisitions of smaller health firms so that they can maintain stability in the pharmaceutical industry. It's mostly about numbers and maintaining their Fortune 10 status.

    Pros

    Very smart, dedicated people. Strong leadership. Terrific comp and benefits.

    Cons

    This is a gigantic company so it comes with the classic big company issues: internal red tape, lack of coordination across functional groups.
