    I have been working at McKesson full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule and laid back atmosphere

    Cons

    Low pay, no promotability, work atmosphere is outdated and dull, leadership does not value talent, nepotism, extremely political, too many layers of management, low morale, depressing to see workers that are truly unhappy. Upper management is clueless.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to your workers at all levels and genuinely understand them.

    I have been working at McKesson full-time

    Pros

    Mckesson Corporation world wide has a excellent reputation as leaders in their specific industries.

    Cons

    Greenville TX - Management and systems are antiquated. Employees too afraid of losing their jobs to speak up in regards to much needed changes in operations and work flow. Pay rate is at poverty level. Many employees work two jobs and are on some type of government assistance to survive (I.E. food stamps, government assisted housing) Work force is roughly 85-90 % women. Another 45% with 2.5 children to support. Very sad and unnecessary. The benefits are very good if these people could afford them. How do you put a roof over your head, food on the table and maintain a mode of transportation at $9.00/per hour?
    Management's interface with employees is prison guard mentality. Upper management (term used loosely) are in positions as a result of longevity vs experience and education. Shocked on a daily basis of how this division is managed. The McKessons that I've had interface with over a 20 yr period is absent in the Greenville, TX division. Current management does not have the experience or education to make the needed changes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Evaluate and streamline work flow and computer system. Bring this division up to the standard of other McKesson workplaces. Bring in new management that enhances and empowers your workforce. There are wonderful people here. Given a small amount of attention and encouragement this division could be as uplifting as the McKesson newsletters that they read. Management should be a tool in guidance and empowerment, not oppression. This management style was found to be non-productive in the 60's. McKesson Greenville, TX needs a CHAMPION. The employees don't need another speech about how profitable we've been, when it's been it their expense. The last address to the employees was so condescending and delivered as if he were speaking to children that I contemplated walking out.

    I have been working at McKesson

    Pros

    Supervisors do not micro-manage, flex time, PTO, good to get entry level experience, generally friendly atmosphere

    Cons

    Work load is impossible, pay rate and raises are terrible, insurance plans offered are high deductible and therefore useless since they don't pay enough to be able to cover the deductible. Do not expect to be trained properly for your job, no opportunities for advancement if you are not looking to become a supervisor/team lead.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    "Thanks for all your hard work" does not pay my bills.

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

    Pros

    Consistent company management
    OK benefits
    Attempting to meet customer requirements for better service
    People are nice; there is very little personal animosity.

    Cons

    McKesson has become more and more bureaucratic as the SAP system has grown. It takes a tremendous amount of planning to move relatively small changes into production.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Customers are not satisfied with the cost and turnaround for changes to the system. Needs to be improved.
