No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

well established .. 180 years old
Fortune 14 .. over $1.2 billion in profits
largest player in healthcare oligopoly

Cons

Management favoritism is rampant. If not in favor, an employee is akin to the U.S. soldiers captured as Korean War POWs described in the book, "The Bucket List".
Older employees can forget about advancement.
Lots of employee development talk, very little employee development walk. Remindful of George Orwell's book "1984".
May be part of the healthcare problem, not part of the healthcare solution.

Advice to Management

Implement more transparency in career advancement through McKNet. Give everyone access to open positions. Throw away multiple job titles .. call a spade a spade.
Fire or retrain middle management that are examples of the Peter Principle and who have no regard for the older employees they manage.
Find the talents in your older employees and put them to use in running the company. Instill more dignity and respect throughout the organization.
Invest heavily in Connect to make it the most reliable and used ordering portal in the industry.

    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Paycheck, and some nice over-worked and stressed out co-workers.

    Cons

    Tons of leadership and process changes constantly. Sourcing, VMO, and Corporate IT at the Alpharetta location is in the midst of change and the current leadership is seeking to trim the fat, everyone is nervous. Due to the many different BU's, tons of "directors" and "vice presidents", the company is difficult to navigate through and difficult to understand the footprint. Perhaps if you have been there for quite some time and are at a high enough level, you may be ok. However, as newbie, I would NOT recommend McKesson (Alpharetta location) to anyone that I care about.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees with respect and consideration even in the midst of the constant changes that you embark on.

    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.
