I worked at McKesson full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Excellent pay
Great opportunities to grow
Work/Life balance highly regarded
Community outreach very important to the company

Cons

Low and mid level managers are usually chosen from project managers or sales pool.
They were good salesmen and project managers but poor managers.
Mckesson has the belief that you can make someone a good manager of people.
Management has an almost royalty self worth.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Learn the difference between someone who is competent at their job and someone who is a good people manager.
Leadership can be taught but not everyone can learn it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior management should pay better attention to how their managers are performing as managers
    Senior management should pay more attention to how long projects take to get completed, see if they ever get completed, and monitor whether those that get completed actually work.
