    Work environment is good. Great benefits and pay. They believe in work-life balance have a lot of opportunities

    Working offsite at another company so I don't always get the McKesson experience. Would like McKesson to visit or check in with their employees that are off site

    Pros

    Compensation is good,Business is growing,Fast pace enviorment timesflys by never boring

    Cons

    Never say anything to management cause all employees will know your personal issues,No teamwok,Promotions based on favoritism, Work balance is poor,Keep all issues to your self and you will be fine.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I feel that you should treat everyone equal and let employees give feed back they do the process everyday and know what works best sense you don't have a procedure. You need to have a Lead in the warehouse, HR have a one on one with each employee,respect from employees in professional manner not as friend, Hire enough employees so your employees wont be so tired working 12+ hrs

    Former Employee - Manager

    I worked at McKesson full-time

    Pros

    Good work life balance
    Low stress
    Typical big company with decent benefit (vacation, healthcare, etc.) and pay.

    Cons

    Not recommend for anyone with any drive or ambition. McKesson is a sea of mediocrity. Extensive measures are taken to bring under performers up to speed while high performers are generally unappreciated and not supported.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on promoting talent from within. Good people leave and the mediocre ones rise to the top.
