Former Employee - Telemarketing Representative II in Fort Worth, TX
Former Employee - Telemarketing Representative II in Fort Worth, TX

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

Pros

well established .. 180 years old
Fortune 14 .. over $1.2 billion in profits
largest player in healthcare oligopoly

Cons

Management favoritism is rampant. If not in favor, an employee is akin to the U.S. soldiers captured as Korean War POWs described in the book, "The Bucket List".
Older employees can forget about advancement.
Lots of employee development talk, very little employee development walk. Remindful of George Orwell's book "1984".
May be part of the healthcare problem, not part of the healthcare solution.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Implement more transparency in career advancement through McKNet. Give everyone access to open positions. Throw away multiple job titles .. call a spade a spade.
Fire or retrain middle management that are examples of the Peter Principle and who have no regard for the older employees they manage.
Find the talents in your older employees and put them to use in running the company. Instill more dignity and respect throughout the organization.
Invest heavily in Connect to make it the most reliable and used ordering portal in the industry.

    I was working solo, did not get sufficient mentoring, and was told that I was working too slowly.
