Pros

Flexible work Schedule and ability to work from home

Cons

Benefits are way too expensive
Fear based environment - every day every single employee is afraid of losing their job
Too many restructures/reorgs (every 3 months)
Not enough cross training
No accountability

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Everybody needs to be held accountable - including Management
Tear down the brick walls that separate departments - create a more cohesive environment
Stop reorganizing. HIre the RIGHT people the first time so you don't have to "clean house" every 3 months. If employees stop worrying about losing their job they might actually be productive!
Instead of dumping the employees who are actually doing the work, dump the middle managers who get paid a fat salary and don't do anything.

    Great vision but hampered by difficult to implement products and poor first-line managers

    Pros

    Senior executives have laid out an excellent vision and to a large extent have provided the tools necessary to make things work. They have provided the workforce with great benefits that encourage good health and a work-life balance. Majority of co-workers are hard working, intelligent, quality folks who are dedicated to improving McKesson's Health-System IT products and to doing what is right for their customers.

    Cons

    As a group, first-line and middle managers have exceedingly poor planning, people and social skills. They often pull people from important initiatives to do work they should have been doing themselves. THe result is that the quality of work provided to customers during implementations and consulting projects diminishes. Some first-line managers have made a career out of covering up their own planning deficiencies and poor managerial skills, sending many dedicated staff running for the exits. A number of excellent implementation consultants and clinical consultants are now doing the same work for the same McKesson customers with third party consulting firms that pay better, provide better benefits and now have a better reputation among customers than McKesson.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Plan on ridding MPT/HSES of about 60% of first line and middle managers. Much of the reason important initiatives are not as successful as they could be is because this group as a whole has difficulty conceptualizing and executing the necessary plans.

    Pros

    High Profile company. Great benefits. Good experience if you want to show that you are a hard worker who doesn't need direct supervision.

    Cons

    There is no clear cut path for advancement of your career. Communication between upper management and lower positions is absolutely terrible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate more with your low level and entry level employees. Create a well defined path of advancement in the company.
