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

Pros

Great company in all areas of healthcare.

Cons

Management in the midwest micro-manages more than most other regions. Opportunity for advancement depends on how buddy buddy you are with Sr. Management.

Advice to Management

Understand that each state/region present different opportunities.

    I worked at McKesson as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    None that I can think of.

    Cons

    They work you very hard.

    Advice to Management

    Offer new hires more training. The senior people there are too busy to help new hires.

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

    Pros

    Place clears out at 4:30 and no weekend demands. Great experience to work with massive amounts of government and private insurance data that would be restricted in any other service environment.

    Cons

    No rhyme or reason to annual layoff process, senior management without strategic vision, constantly reinvent themselves so no one at top is accountable. Products are rigid offering that isn't dynamic or fluid it is just gets a new name. No ethics on privacy with HIT because business development promises don't match up to practices. Customer support or lawyers who speak up find their jobs outsourced to Bombay or "leave the company to pursue other opportunities". Lawyers and I.T. programmers only get to stay if they look the other way and say "i did not cause it, so it is not my job to fix."Pay is low to medium, benefits overpriced for what they are.

    Advice to Management

    Stop fibbing to customers. Stop firing smart people who try to fix things. Start top down education of people who claim to be MD, PhD, PsyD, BN and NP. Make a real strategic, financial and HIT privacy plan.
