I have been working at McKesson Medical-Surgical full-time (less than an year)

Pros

Stable easy job. People are very nice and benefits are great.

Cons

Very easy to become just a number. While there are plenty of opportunities to move up, you have to really sell yourself to get noticed. Salary is low and they are cheap about raises.

    Pros

    If you want to learn to advance and willing to seek it, the opportunity is there. Everyone is pleasant and welcoming.

    Cons

    Company of mergers so a lot of different platforms not speaking to each other. Data are complex to understand. Poor training materials - all by word of mouth, very limited business process documentations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to improve processes and document processes for better training manual. Consistency throughout different departments in HR rules and guidelines.

    Interesting Projects, No Work-Life Balance

    I have been working at McKesson Medical-Surgical

    Pros

    1. Interesting projects which often require creative solutions
    2. Willingness to spend on technology in some areas
    3. Easy to transfer to another department if talented
    4. Some telecommuting allowed
    5. Better than average benefits

    Cons

    1. Very noisy. It's a cubicle environment with not nearly enough conference rooms.
    2. Lower than average salaries.
    3. Quantity matters more than quality. Although upper management claims to want us to do less but at a higher quality, this is not what my 15-person team is experiencing. Everyone is working on multiple projects with almost no time allocated for design due to my next point.
    4. The blind use of Agile methodologies for almost all projects. The results is way, way too many database tables which don't play well with each other. I have never experienced such (needlessly) complex data before joining McKesson.
    5. Poor project management.
