    At Relay Health there are a lot of great people who are passionate about improving Health Care, plus there is an understanding of having a balanced lifestyle.

    Just like everything large organization there are some organizational challenges in trying to get access to various shared systems, but once you get to the correct person the problem gets solved.

    Keep listening to the individual contributors completing the hard work, there are a lot great ideas from people wanting to improve the health care industry.

    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.

    Pros

    Great People to work with.

    I guess like everything else. Change is the only constant, so I think as long as you can follow the change, you should be okay.

    I worked at McKesson

    Pros

    Fantastic place to work. No Politics nor games. Show up do your job meet your goals and go home well compensated until management change. Then all bets were off since the beginning of 2015.

    Cons

    Why lay off experienced people with product knowledge when sun setting another. Then have people with no product knowledge and managers who are disengaged,

    Advice to Management

    will fall on dear ears if I do

    Pros

    Wide opportunity across the company, decent benefits, high collaboration mentality, strong leadership, flexible work hours (in general), forward looking leading edge technology, geographically diverse, up to date/driving/reacting to ever-changing health care reforms, will make difficult decisions to stay profitable

    Cons

    Will sustain poor local management to further product vision, high utilization of remote team members can lead to challenging communications and effectiveness. Little visibility to the larger corporation goals/accomplishments.

    Advice to Management

    Would be wonderful if a broader perspective of the MCK company as its entirety were more regularly reviewed with employees
