    I have been working at McKesson full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, opportunity, culture and huge corporation so resources/funds not a problem. Structures and roles often well thought out and subsequently BUs set up for success...and if they are not they are adjusted.

    Cons

    Continuous shift in resources so inherently a shift in goals and focus in most areas. Leadership turns over frequently, mostly due to promotion and reorgs, but then kind of a moving target for the rest of the business trying to play catch up. Also potential for layoffs in any position at any time.

    Pros

    Good Healthcare and Dental Benefits, Large Company HR Support, Strong Bonus Program

    Cons

    Company continues to preach strong leadership yet continues to keep individuals in VP roles that are not good leaders, terrible communicators, terrible customer interaction and customer support, unable to grow staff, hated by peers. Some business units do not get the attention and funding needed to manage business through the industry challenges, resulting in large RIF, poor quality of product, poor leadership, etc. Too much focus on the number $$ and not enough focus on quality healthcare product and service.

    Advice to Management

    Practice what you preach. Hold VP and Senior Executives accountable to mentor and grow staff and business, create obtainable goals and objectives, stop the constant change of reorganization. Choose your leaders based on employee and customer feedback and surveys, teach and grow them to be the mentors and roles models they think they are.

    Give better hours, sometimes people need more breaks, and it would definitely increase productivity in the office

    Pros

    Mckesson was a good experience. Very strong company, constant growth, fair to above average pay, solid environment. Bonus structure is very favorable.

    Cons

    Lack of overall innovation. Very slow moving company. Seems to be a good company to join when a more laid back environment is desired.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to invest in employees through rotating employees to create a more diverse culture.
