    Former Employee - Sales Specialist in Chicago, IL

    I worked at McKesson Information Solutions full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Great salary and benefits, had a great support staff and all the people that worked there were good people. My boss and boss' boss were all great people and very supportive. It's a lot easier to sell something made by McKesson than a new player in the market that hasn't yet built a great reputation for itself.

    Cons

    I was in a junior sales role - my first role as a sales person - and had a sales manager who had never sold before, so I received very little coaching until it was clear that I needed coaching. On one hand, sometimes learning by the sink or swim method works really well - and I learned a lot; on the other hand, a little coaching early on can go a long way for a junior sales person. I would suggest only experienced sales people to take a job here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think the management there, generally did a great job and I would encourage them to keep doing what they are doing.

    Pros

    I love my job, it is challenging but also has a good work-life balance. I have worked here for 20+ years and have never had a manager I didn't enjoy working for. The ability to work from home is a nice perk.

    Cons

    Lack of formal training for some products. No loyalty to employees when it comes to layoffs. But this is pretty common.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work
