I worked at McKesson full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Your job is pretty standard.. it doesn't change drasticly so its easy to catch on
They let you listen to earphones as you work helps time go by faster and keeps you focused on work.
you are required to take two 15 minute breaks
In some departments you can leave as early as 3:30pm
Training is always usually accepted if requested.

Cons

With all the layoffs the job can get stressful at times they usually fire in bunches.. due to much stress, high blood pressure and what have you I can't tell you how many times paramedics were called to the building.
Parking lot and street floods and you aren't allowed to leave until they choose to or take unplaid leave
Consistant change in management
Power goes out
Paid parking
Sick days and vacation days are added to the same bucket known as pto paid time off

Advice to Management

Keep things consistant and positive your team is all you have, they should be a reflection of you. Thing is I had the best manager/supervisor to ever walk into that place. I have for reasons outside of management.

    I worked at McKesson full-time

    Pros

    The office parties were enjoyable and most of the employees were enjoyable to work with.

    Cons

    The pay is poor. There wasn't enough acknowledgement from management on accomplishments from those who worked hard. Poor management led to blame being put on employees. There's a constant influx of employees leaving (on the spot) which as well as new hires which should indicate something.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to treat your employees like people. I would highly recommend Dave Ramsey's book "Entreleadership". Management needs to improve so people don't end up being treated as subjects.

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

    Pros

    Flexible shedules, work-life balance, competitive pay, great group environment

    Cons

    The insurance that is offered could be better, but overall it is substantial and the dental and vision insurance is superb.

    Advice to Management

    Promote more from within the company. New managers coming into the company know less than the employees that have worked here for years.
