    I worked at McKesson

    Pros

    McKesson has a Pay for Performance program that ensures all employees are focused on their goals for the year.

    McKesson has it all. Small divisions make decisions rapidly, and large divisions work more slowly.

    I worked at McKesson full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Very good benefits, above average compensation

    Cons

    Inconsistent training, high pressure, high expectations

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest more time in hands-on training. It's beneficial to the employee and the company to invest time in the employee before expecting complete job knowledge and possible sub-par performance.

    I have been working at McKesson full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Get to work at home with resources available via instant messaging for computer issues or clinical questions. Good pay and benefits.

    Cons

    Recently there has been pressure from upper management to meet time metrics without fail. No consideration about the patient. And no consideration of the nurses individual contributions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not expect that staff will meet the time metrics each and every month.
