    Great benefits and decent pay. Leaders are more focused on the bottom line than on employee wellbeing.

    I worked at McKesson full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits. Great fellow employees.

    Cons

    'We own you' management mentality. Very little management interaction. Everything human is automated and it's easy to get lost in the shuffle.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sacrifice a little of the company heads salaries and staff up!

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

    Pros

    Pay, benefits, education assistance program, 401k, vacation

    Cons

    They have a machine driven view, they manage employees as machines/robots. They keep a lot of tabs on you, constraints, restrictions. Management do not value employees, they only think about the metrics. They want to write you up for everything, no empathy, no recognition. Management does not know how to communicate with employees. If you work in a distribution center it's hard to move up within the company's hierarchy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better leadership, better management, ......................

    Pros

    It is easy once you learn to navigate the system. Relaxed dress code. Good benefits.

    Cons

    No work life balance. Gossip like high school girls. No time flexibility. No advancement opportunities. No tuition reimbursement. No training. Low pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to do the job you are managing. Work life balance, or families are numbwr one even if yours aren't too you.

    I have been working at McKesson

    Pros

    McKesson has great benefits that can make up for the lack of salary

    Cons

    McKesson doesn't always pay the best because they pay based on market rate but also the there are salary ranges and managers are not held accountable for ensuring their employees are in the range. I had talked to 2 HR people about my employees and correcting their salary to market rate and there was not an official process for merit increase or for people that are below the market rate

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    HR Management needs to step up at McKesson and review what the line managers are doing because employees are getting screwed over.
