I worked at McKesson as a contractor (less than an year)

Pros

McKesson has wonderful people working there. They are cheerful, helpful and flexible. They made my work experience a fabulous one and I wish I could still be there!

Cons

There was nothing I didn't like about the company, except navigating through their recruiting department was a huge challenge. It seems if they have such a large population to serve, that's one area that could be tightened up quite a bit.

    Pros

    The company overall is an a wonderful company. McKesson as a parent company is great. The benefits are great and the compensation is competitive at initial entrance into the workforce.

    Cons

    The Charlotte office has a lot off issues. The turn-over rate is very high. Management is not supportive of career growth or development. Management plays favorites and those are the only people who get promoted. Some managers will block your ability to interview elsewhere to grow within the company. Executive management is aware of the low employee morale and has yet to place anything into action. Management would rather keep everything under wraps so it makes things seem better than they are. HR has been notified of issues multiple times by multiple employees are employees were told to "stop taking things so seriously." So if you want to work in an abusive, micro-managing environment, then the Charlotte office is for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When you stop being a leader, your employees do not believe in you anymore. Being selfish to your own department and not letting employees explore other opportunities within the company hurts McKesson as a whole. If nothing changes, more and more people will leave.

    Difficult, exacerbated by poor management and poor management decisions

    I have been working at McKesson full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    benefits do not, pay rent, or cover the expenses involved in just showing up every day.
    A "pro" might be health insurance, but as a major player in the industry the health coverage offered has been reduced over the years and is still a MAJOR burden for many employees.

    Cons

    Lack of flexibility which has impacted the bottom line. Low wages in relation to the local economy,
    Puget Sound is a very expensive, which McKesson has never recognized. Poor management at local
    level. Inadequate resources to do the job properly, lack of material support in facility. Favoritism and politics are rampant and damaging to the workplace environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I do not believe management is open for advice at least on the upper levels. Local management deals
    in such things as what to have at the company picnic, how to prompt workers to greater production
    with trinkets, t-shirts and meaningless incentives, who works when, where and on what day. Upper
    management relies on bean counters and long established company policies. There is little or no
    flexibility or creativity in the decision making process. This eliminates the possibility of improvements
    and lowers the possibilities of even greater profits. It is the people making less than $20 an hour who
    make it possible for executives to make tens of millions of dollars and these peole are under
    recognized and rewarded. The business plan that McKesson uses might be called "Plantation".
