    I have been working at McKesson full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    solid leadership and management, ability to attend workshops and conferences, ability to work from home, great communication with supervisors, great benefits package, lots of growth to move up and around in the company

    Cons

    work-life balance can be a little difficult (I had to answer some emails and phone calls after 5, work on weekends, etc.), some travel required for certain positions because of national locations

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I honestly had a great employment at McKesson. My only advice would be to maybe be more flexible with people's personal life. They wanted me to travel about once a month and that became an issue. Especially when travel wasn't discussed in my job description and I really didn't think it was necessary for me to be there - I wasn't high level or an essential employee of any sort.

    Pros

    Large company lots of resources, lots of history, is not going any where, you will not loose your job in downturn in the economy,

    Cons

    there is no innovation or process improvement or thinking out side the box, the company does things the same way they have been doing it for years and years, McKesson still has paper files every where, the VP only can about themselves and how they can milk the company, little thought to the customer or work bees, no entrepreneur spirit, your voice is not heard, if you are young in your 20s good luck because everyone one is 50+

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    listen to the younger generation they are going to change things and higher younger professionals who can adept quickly to changes in technology verse employees who are reward for years of time with the company yet they have done nothing to improve the process, .....lastly go paperless ....you are killing trees

    Talk of investing in their people and desire to retain talent are empty words.

    I worked at McKesson full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Many positions were remote but they used technology to keep team members together and on the same page. Senior management were always praising in public and going over lessons learned in private. The employees were giving new laptops and software annually.

    Cons

    The % of travel required varied by workflow and was hard to maintain healthy work-life balances. Some of the productivity requirements were out of workers control (sales mainly) and the non-sales team suffered bonus losses. Medical premiums were higher than expected.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good job rewarding great employees.

    I have been working at McKesson

    Pros

    Well-known company. Good choice if insurance plans. Good amount if PTO for new employees. Many work-from-home opportunities. Computer hardware supplied by company.

    Cons

    Substandard salary for coders. Division micromanaged by a non-coder. Not enough staff so a lot of mandatory overtime. No CME offered, no reimbursement for CME. No flexibility as far as hours. Not enough tools to do the job with no educational support and punituve audit system. Little communication with knee-jerk reaction responses.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When you hire competent employees, you don't need to micromanage them.
