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

Former Employee - Product Support Represenstative in Westminster, CO

I worked at McKesson full-time (more than 5 years)

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 ManagementAdvice

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

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
