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

Pros

Working with fun and helpful people makes great team work and I have a lot of that within the warehouse. I made some very important friendships and have great mentors. My boss gives me job independence as much as possible. Also, lets me use my own creativity and supports me in making and completing my own projects.
You can make decent money without needing a college degree. They are pretty good about working with school schedules so working in the warehouse helps in obtaining an education. If you want to learn a different job or are curious, just ask. The supervisors are usually willing to help and switch you around to learn different jobs. Show them you are a good worker and they are always willing to give you a chance.

Cons

No chance for growth in my current job position, will have to transfer to a different job for better opportunities. There isn't enough positions within the warehouse to move to a higher job scale so you would have to learn as much as you can and either transfer or find a different job. Steer clear of the negativity, it can be very discouraging and there is a lot of it. My co-workers I work with directly can be difficult and it makes it harder to try to be a team which makes it a difficult working situation.
Sometimes the shift can be exhausting and difficult, hours change all the time as well as working overtime. It can be a good thing or a bad thing depending on your life situation.

Advice to Management

Respect your hardworking employees regardless of how you feel about them. Give them advice instead of always acting on something in a negative way. Encouragement and constructive criticism go a long way.

    I have been working at McKesson full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Fairly flexible in work hours and time off. The benefits are passible, but not great. Co-workers tend to be dedicated people by and large, and are often enjoyable to work with and socialize with. Pay is decent for the various jobs in tech.

    Cons

    Ideas are driven from the top down, and in a tech division, that will be their downfall unless they change the way they are doing things quickly. Too many competing products to be effective, just pick one area and concentrate on it until you do it well. They too often they purchase new companies instead of innovating on their own.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the experts you have hired to accomplish a task, and step out of the way.

    I worked at McKesson full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Working in the IT field allows you to interact with many different groups and see what works and what doesn't. My IT team was well organized and very team oriented. Manager was focused on customer service and trying to do what was best for the group as well as company.

    Cons

    Disorganization among other divisions and units leads to overruns on projects which obviously leads to projects that go over budget. the office i worked in was one division and had 4 different groups. Those groups may as well have not known one another given that amount of overall difference in management and performance. Such a stark contrast in management in one location was not unusual. You may have a good team but once you step out and work with a different group, prepare to become frustrated.

    Advice to Management

    Setting some standards among management and how they are to engage the daily tasks, become more customer service oriented. Such a big company, some acknowledgement for the employees would nice.
