    I have been working at McKesson full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Many options to work in various departments (speaking from experience in 10 years I've been in operations, six sigma, contracting sales and marketing). Very laid back culture with a great work like balance.

    Cons

    If you stay with company and not looking to move up eventually the pay won't be what you could get in other positions, but there is so much training and opportunity to advance you can keep up with market averages

    Pros

    Ok money for not hard work. Typical office environment. Most work pretty mindless. Very laid back atmosphere with most co-workers evident of that.

    Cons

    Not a lot of room for growth. Middle management very unprofessional on floor, mostly due to not being qualified for management positions.

    Former Employee - Software Engineer Co-Op in Alpharetta, GA (US)

    I worked at McKesson as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    It was close to my house.

    Cons

    Basically everything. The company is run by engineers and managers that are age 40+ mainly. The youngest guy i saw there was 27ish and he was the only one. I thought the software engineering intern class would be huge, but I was the only one. The other interns were business/marketing majors. Also, the location in Alpharetta is pretty dull, mainly a family oriented area.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more cs interns at a time.

    I have been working at McKesson full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    McKesson is big on employee development. Various training classes are offered and some are even mandatory. We currently have Dallas Baptist University coming on-site to provide college classes that go toward employees obtaining a Bachelor degree.

    Cons

    My only problem with this company is the pay. The yearly raises are a joke. Your performance review can be above expectation, but the raise doesn't keep up with the average cost of living increase per year. Promotion salaries have also yet to meet expectations. They seem to find these people that are happy with having a title and a sense of belonging, but are fine with barely being able to pay the bills.
