I worked at McKesson full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

This is a big company with lots of resources, but profit is more important than people.
There are some top rate managers here and they are willing to bring in the latest trends to manage IT.

Cons

McKesson talks about core values, but the only important value there is how much money the CEO makes.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Live your ICARE principals, which means do not feel out the lower level people who made your departments successful.

    I worked at McKesson full-time for 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.
