    Working at McKesson was a trying yet rewarding experience.

    Material Handler (Former Employee) Duluth, GA

    ProsThe pay is good. Employee benefits from everything such as health insurance to Roth ira to stock purchase are great. Room for growth in the company and just knowing that your job saves lives is an excellent feeling.

    ConsSometimes the people that you work with can be a bit on the negative side and tend to act extremely childish at times.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEngage work your employees.

    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.

    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
