    Pros

    Great company to work for, In my nine years there I never had an issue. I would still be there not for the fact there was a reduction in workforce due to a reorganization.

    Cons

    I do not have anything negative to say except for the fact that the new management does not understand the product nor the culture and we were reduced to a number and headcount.

    Advice to Management

    There was a lot a talented people who knew the product who were let go in the RIF in May should have been with the people who did not know the product

    Pros

    Work-Life balance, surrounded by smart, energetic people.

    Cons

    Top-fed organization, slow to change. Poor communication between departments. Driven too much by performance reviews, everyone is concerned with checking boxes, not innovating.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the people on the ground, in the trenches. Stop spending all day in redundant meetings, talking, and let's see some follow through on some of these "ideas" and process improvement special projects.

    Pros

    In general, the quality of the people at McKesson is terrific.

    Cons

    McKesson's technology divisions routinely lay off large numbers of employees without regard to individual performance. These decisions may be made at the top of the company, without local manager input, and can be short-sighted. While there are those who have been at McKesson for years who have moved up the ranks, it's not a company where a career path is assured - or likely, particularly with newly formed organizations.

    Advice to Management

    If you believe employees are valuable resources, treat them that way.

    Pros

    Small teams had great people. Folks liked helping each other out. The good managers were great to work for. Decent pay and decent benefits. Got to work from home a couple days a week.

    Cons

    McKesson put all their eggs in one basket for a product no one likes. The bread and butter money maker app was shelved and support was offshored. The good managers were let go and lots of folks lost their jobs. There is no future at McKesson.

    Advice to Management

    Current management is the status quo so there is no advice to them. The good managers were let go and all that are left are the ones who have no vision. You have set yourselves up for failure and it is unfortunate.
