    Working at McKesson was a trying yet rewarding experience.

    Material Handler (Former Employee) Duluth, GA (US)

    ProsThe pay is good. Employee benefits from everything such as health insurance to Roth ira to stock purchase are great. Room for growth in the company and just knowing that your job saves lives is an excellent feeling.

    ConsSometimes the people that you work with can be a bit on the negative side and tend to act extremely childish at times.

    Cash Cow

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsEntrepreneurial division very focused on success of customers

    ConsCorporate had bled the division for years, taking profit and not re-investing in the business. Senior management supported clearly horrendous decisions that anyone could have seen would be train wrecks from a mile away.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't be so easily bulldozed by San Francisco and Atlanta.
