I have been working at McKesson full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Above average benefits package which includes health, vision, dental, 401k, employee stock purchasing plan, and more.

Cons

Work/Life balance is hard to achieve but they company seems to be making a real effort to change this over the coming months.

Advice to Management

It is important to find the strengths of each employee and allow them to shine in those areas. Present other opportunities to assist in other areas to gain a greater product knowledge and experience.

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at McKesson full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    PSIP, great healthcare coverage, top-notch knowledge sharing at the Support level, non-exempt (overtime pay), very casual workplace atmosphere, opportunities to telecommute

    Cons

    High stress environment (not the workplace itself, but the fact that there's such a steep learning curve with the various McKesson products and a high demand from customers), irregular hours (See "non-exempt" above, you'll be working nights and weekends), few opportunities to progress your career, sparse training, talent retention

    Advice to Management

    With respect to the Support division, upper management needs to have a better understanding of the company's various products and what it takes to support them. Also, a severe problem exists with retaining talented employees; upper management needs to invest more into the employees themselves instead of the umpteenth strategy to rearrange the seating chart.

    I have been working at McKesson full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Stable easy job. People are very nice and benefits are great.

    Cons

    Very easy to become just a number. While there are plenty of opportunities to move up, you have to really sell yourself to get noticed. Salary is low and they are cheap about raises.
