Don't get your hopes up

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Richmond, VA

I worked at McKesson Medical-Surgical full-time for more than 5 years

ProsMcKesson has good benefits and time off policies.

ConsLeadership is sneaky so watch out. Lots of politics.

Advice to Senior ManagementCare about your employees. Stand by them and do the right thing by them. Make your leaders in the trenches do what they said they were going to do. They have made promises to me that they didn't keep but used that as the reason for me to no longer be there. I am good employee and it's their loss.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Administrative Assistant (Current Employee)
Swedesboro, NJ

I have been working at McKesson Medical-Surgical full-time for more than 5 years

Fast paced and ever changing!

Manager (Current Employee)
Golden Valley, MN

I have been working at McKesson Medical-Surgical full-time for more than 3 years

ProsFlexible with work at home schedules. Lots of employee longevity and good benefits. Depth of knowledge with many Mangers who have worked their way up in the company makes for supportive Management who 'gets it'.

ConsDepartments function as silos and communication is impacted. Because many people have been with the company for a long time, difficult to find documentatoin for processes that cross departments - lots of knowledge in peoples heads.

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

Good place if you want to stand out.

Manager (Current Employee)
Richmond, VA

I have been working at McKesson Medical-Surgical full-time for more than 3 years

ProsNot a very aggressive place. You can do well without much effort. Decisions are SLOWWWWWW to be made, assuming they ever are made.

ConsThe HQ building needs to be demolished. Pay does not match performance. It's based more on experience.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep on Keepin on.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Richmond, VA

I have been working at McKesson Medical-Surgical full-time for less than a year

ProsStable company with lots of growth in the right direction.

ConsSome department don't allow for growth and development, which lead to people staying in the same jobs for years with no where to go. No work/life balance in some departments.

Advice to Senior ManagementRecognize the talent within and allow people to grow and move around.

No Politics

Management (Current Employee)
Richmond, VA

I have been working at McKesson Medical-Surgical full-time for more than 10 years

ProsNo politics, decent work life balance, good people, very solid senior management team. Pay is competitive and benefits are generous.

ConsCautious to make changes, PSS merger is going to be tough, pretty boring... those under 30 won't find it very fun. The office in Richmond is ugly and if you want nice furniture and pretty art, work elsewhere.

Advice to Senior ManagementMake decisions faster and take a few risks.

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