    Good place to work considering it's a huge corporate environment

    Senior Applications Support Analyst (Former Employee)
    Alpharetta, GA

    ProsI loved the teamwork with fellow co-workers. Strong leadership kept the team focused and also provided what was coming down the path. They also support a work-life balance and provided flexibility for family/personal life.

    Conssince I was working in a contractor role, I was not able to transition to a full time position as there was not one available. Compensation was almost half of contract pay.

    Advice to Senior ManagementConsider moving full time folks who are less productive to make room for contractors who want to work full time and benefit the business unit.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Long term employee effected by reduction in staff has confidence in the company and its ability to refocus.

    Senior Applications Support Analyst (Former Employee)
    Alpharetta, GA

    ProsCompany is large and has a breadth of product which allows for opportunities to change roles and gain knowledge in many areas. There are great opportunities for success and longevity.

    ConsIts strength is its challenge , Size. Decisions must pass through many layers leaving lower management with extremely limited decision making abilities. Currently, struggling in some areas with communication and balancing the consolidation of business units.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe sure not to forget about the actual employee. Lower management needs to stay connected to their teams and ensure groups are working together and communications are consistently distributed.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great opportunity, learned a lot and still have business relationships with former co-workers.

    Business Analyst II (Current Employee)
    Alpharetta, GA

    ProsVery secure company with a lot of diversity in it's portfolio - less corporate politics than other companies of equal or larger size.

    ConsReduction in workforce is handled poorly. Other corporations give advance notice to employees, offer other options, etc. McKesson doesn't provide anything like that based on information from many that have been released from their employment in different business units.

    Advice to Senior ManagementReview more resumes manually instead of relying so heavily on resume software scanners.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great company

    Sales (Current Employee)
    Alpharetta, GA

    ProsThe pay and benefits are great, recognition is given to performers, excellent training is provided and there are numerous opportunities to advance. This is a wonderful company to have a long career with.

    ConsThere is not much to complain about. There is sometimes contradicting guidance provided by several different superiors, which can slow a person down; but that's part of working for most large companies.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
