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.

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

    Pros

    Benefits are some of the best with 28 days of PTO.

    Cons

    politics, brown nosing, seeing people who clearly are not qualified promoted to positions that drive business.

    Advice to Management

    Start promoting within, some of us completed the lead the way certification and was told from new management who has no idea what this was that career move within in rarely offered. Also, how about allowing employees to review their bosses, we are so concerned the number of managers that has no clue how to manage.
