Pros

The colleagues I worked with were great people. The immediate supervisor was a good person who understood how the rest of the company operated.

Cons

Upper management couldn't care less about the support staff. Also, the staff we supported on the helpdesk always complained to us and the procedures were changed on a whim.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Act like you care about your employees. The helpdesk technicians (AKA Command Center) are one of the most important assets to your company. Treat them like they are welcomed.

    Pros

    McKesson is a large company with a relatively stable revenue stream in the Distribution Services business. The Technology side of McKesson can be a lot more chaotic, however the breadth offerings are unmatched in the industry. If they ever figure out how to go to market as a coherent offering, it could be unstoppable, unfortunately today the technology business is very fractured and often competes with itself.

    Cons

    McKesson is an incredible large and slow moving bureaucracy. It's essentially a holding company with no plans to integrate different business units. Almost all growth comes from acquisitions, and cost cutting usually involves layoffs, selling unprofitable divisions, or combining groups (and layoffs). Career advancement is very limited.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There are some that say McKesson makes money in spite of itself - I think there are a few very shrewd senior leaders who have placed some good bets and the revenue from these businesses is supporting the rest of the company. Most middle management seems incapable of accomplishing anything.
