    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

    It's Monday through Friday only and has lots of rewards for doing a good job

    Cons

    Schedule will be anytime from 7am to 9pm and goes by seniority and call quality and a ton of 4 days on and 3 days off shifts which are great for some people but not good at all for single moms that have kids in daycare since daycares close at 6:30 normally.

    Advice to Management

    Have better schedules for parents that have kids in child care

    Pros

    Very good people to work with. Management is hands on, but doesn't micromanage.

    Cons

    Corporate takes forever ro hire from contract. Very inflexible with point system.

    Advice to Management

    Be more flexible with being late. This is Atlanta traffic.

    Pros

    Great hours 9-5 every day - not much overtime required but still a good learning experience. Would recommend to most people interested in healthcare.

    Cons

    Conservative company. Behind on a lot of technology and there was a lot of turnover after I had left the summer.

    Advice to Management

    Change the culture of the company to run less like a bank and be current with the trends in technology and healthcare.

    Pros

    Great company with a lot of longevity. Big focus on military hires. A lot of rewards and recognition that doesn't exist in other companies.

    Cons

    Can sometimes be too political. Along with longevity, comes long memories and it's hard to change people's view. Long term employees have a sense of entitlement.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to appreciate employees.
