    Pros

    Large Organizational structure, decent benefits

    Cons

    Too Big, makes a lot of noise about caring about employees, but closed my division completely even though it was profitable

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better job of finding places in the organization for employee's faced with RIF, especially those over 50.

    Former Employee - Warehouseman in Kansas City, MO

    I worked at McKesson Medical-Surgical full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Picking orders, Mezzanine, Shipping, receiving , even replenishment. Not a good place to work if you are ot good at kissing butt. (Even if you are highly skilled) This place rewards the bums, and punishes the highly skilled by screwing them over whenever possible. Id never work there again.. even as a temp worker

    Pros

    No chance of running out of work to do... this company is ever-changing with lots of acquisition activity. Integration projects for ALL! Very flexible work environment; career growth opportunities, good company values and a great management team.

    Cons

    Agree with some previous comments about departmental silos... even team silos within the departments! This hurts us at times when information is not proactively shared among team that work together or are dependent upon one another.

    Pros

    McKesson has good benefits and time off policies.

    Cons

    Leadership is sneaky so watch out. Lots of politics.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care 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.

    Pros

    Salary compensation good - better than most companies in the area.

    Cons

    Attitude on part of warehouse associates deplorable. Some managers have control issues and are afraid to make decisions.
