    Pros

    Individual Contributors are hard working, honest people. The tools and resources available are top notch. Education reimbursement is a plus.

    Cons

    Workload is overwhelming for US based employees. There is not enough staff to complete the work required and little to no effort has been made in the past several years to address it.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at McKesson Canada (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Competitive salary, although it could be higher

    - Strict 9 to 5, type of deal, rarely overtime. Some work, life balance

    Cons

    - Sales department, one of the most depressing departments to work in. If Customer Service decide they do not want to handle a responsibility, guess what it's Sales who has to!! Hundreds of calls to be made to clients or hundreds of faxes to be sent

    - Few hard working sales analysts, but most are very lazy, when they have tasks that are tedious/ time consuming or repetitive and manual, they give these tasks to the support. They also take a lot of vacations, I never knew a company gave that many to people who don't do work.

    - The support is constantly overworked and sales analysts tasks were handed over frequently. It did not matter if you did not have the background i.e, customer service or long time use of their system. Poor training in quality and time.

    - Out of date computer system that made everything that much more difficult and monotonous

    - I've literally witnessed at least 2 employees crying due to poor treatment i.e. being overworked by management or verbally abused by the warehouse manager.

    - Management laid off all the good sales directors and senior/ long time sales manager, anyone that treated their employees well, were cheerful / empathetic, fun-loving and sweet were gone in a blink of an eye. No farewell gatherings or no tokens of appreciation. Also witnessed callous firing/ laid off of a veteran who was having a tough year.
    All cons are directed toward Mississauga branch

    - Management that is left -- incompetent, heartless, and self-serving

    - Funds constantly transferred to head company in US, so there were some cash flow problems, maybe that is why they laid off employees

    - No room for advancement
    - Very old building that was hardly cleaned properly, lots of dust bunnies rolling around. Microwaves were disgusting. They moved, hopefully, the cleaning habits changed.

    Advice to Management

    Take heed of all the cons I have mentioned and just do better, you are supposed to be one of the top pharmaceutical and beauty suppliers!

    I have been working at McKesson Canada full-time

    Pros

    Many initiatives to engage staff with events and to ensure employees are updated on company changes.

    Like most companies, internal award programs to promote values and morale have a degree of effectiveness.

    McKesson Canada as a whole has come a long way to incorporate suggestions from internal feedback.

    Cons

    A lot of processes and management approaches at McKesson really date the company.

    There is a general lack of responsibility in the work produced and an unwillingness from upper management to acknowledge this.

    Training can be vastly improved, and because of this, there is a notable plateau in skill development.

    Advice to Management

    Constructive feedback should always be welcomed - your staff care enough to bring up an issue.

    Action followed by feedback on a dept. level will greatly benefit the efficiency of this place.
