Not a bad place to start a non-clinical medical career....but not a place to stay long term...

I worked at McKesson

Pros

Flexible start hours in most departments, friendliness of employees, great place to start gaining experience; McKesson is great for an entry level person to go to.

Cons

HR staff cannot really answer all your questions, wonder why they have an HR rep.

Archaic computer system that has not been updated since who knows when.

No room for advancement up the chain or for a lateral move, as things are being restructured or outsourced.

The starting level pay is $2 lower per hour than the average entry level pay for medical billers and the amount of workload is not worth the money you are paid for it.

Some of the corporate policies go against real actual law that does exist and they have no plans to change their policies to reflect true law.

Too much micro-management w/in departments-meaning too many people trying to be your supervisor at one time and tell you what your duties are (too many hands in the same pot) making the job not get done w/in the appropriate time frame as mandated by governmental agencies.

Training needs to be revamped-need training manuals for departments and use people who actualy know how to train.

There was no raise given after 90 days like most other jobs. No formal evaluation either was given.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Update your computer systems to be more efficient, the PC's at the employee's desks do not have enlough memory thus making the computers run real slow.

Address the micro-management issues so that people know what their duties are, who they should really report to, because almost every "coordinator" or "team lead" thinks they are a manager, which is not true.

Raise your entry level pay to retain employees. Paying them $2 under the average for the job makes the great employees with potential leave for other opportunites.

    Pros

    Compensation, Benefits, Mission, Vision, Values

    Cons

    More emphasis on development of management skills for supervisors and managers. Emphasis on soft skills, crucial conversations, meeting management, individual development conversations so that they can rely less on HR and more on themselves.

    Pros

    Salary, benefits, flex time, very competent colleagues.

    Cons

    Tiny cubes, not much leadership from mgrs because they must react to senior mngt whims, senior mngt rotates in/out every few years, employee performance system is more obligatory than it is useful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't sacrifice workplace quality of life on the alter of expense cutting. Realize that some costs carry very important intangible benefits.
