    I have been working at McKesson full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I am fortunate to work in a great department with wonderful people and a very caring boss. Other departments in this company are not like this.

    Cons

    Pay is low, by design, compared to other companies in the industry. They figure you are compensated in other ways by working here, which is somewhat true. Raises and career advancement are difficult.
