A great place to start in Healthcare I.T., but a poor choice for long-term employment

Pros

PSIP, great healthcare coverage, top-notch knowledge sharing at the Support level, non-exempt (overtime pay), very casual workplace atmosphere, opportunities to telecommute

Cons

High stress environment (not the workplace itself, but the fact that there's such a steep learning curve with the various McKesson products and a high demand from customers), irregular hours (See "non-exempt" above, you'll be working nights and weekends), few opportunities to progress your career, sparse training, talent retention

Advice to Management

With respect to the Support division, upper management needs to have a better understanding of the company's various products and what it takes to support them. Also, a severe problem exists with retaining talented employees; upper management needs to invest more into the employees themselves instead of the umpteenth strategy to rearrange the seating chart.

    Pros

    Competitive pay and benefits. Given significant responsibility and flexibility and decision making authority to get the job done. Focus on results. High performing co-workers.

    Cons

    Very demanding and not a good work life balance (see this consistently across the entire organization in the Employee Opinion Survey, not just my group).

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in the employees. The miniscule percentage invested in merit rewards does not reconcile with the record profits these same employees produce for the company.

  2. Huge company with great upward mobility potential

    Pros

    Above average benefits package which includes health, vision, dental, 401k, employee stock purchasing plan, and more.

    Cons

    Work/Life balance is hard to achieve but they company seems to be making a real effort to change this over the coming months.

    Advice to Management

    It is important to find the strengths of each employee and allow them to shine in those areas. Present other opportunities to assist in other areas to gain a greater product knowledge and experience.
