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

    Pros

    if you stay there long enough (over 5 years) you get a decent amount of vacation, I guess

    Cons

    They track and nitpick everything you do, no matter how inconsequential. They actually had spyware installed on everyone's computer to track every single click you made on your computer. Petty micromanagers at almost all levels. You can also pretty much expect to not advance in your career at all if you don't have a college degree - even if you're smarter and better at your job than every college grad they hire - they will promote them ahead of you and leave you in your dead-end position with your meager 2% annual raises (if you're lucky.) Meanwhile, the CEO gets over 100 million dollars of stock bonuses every year. They are constantly talking about doing more with less (i.e. if someone in your department leaves or quits, they will not be replaced, their work will be redistributed to you and when you say it can't possibly be done, it is literally impossible they will act like you are being lazy and treat you even more like garbage.) They're constantly saying they want people to make suggestions to improve processes, etc., but when you do, they just say it can't be done or dismiss it. Your input is not actually wanted. Then they constantly wonder why morale is low and why they score so poorly on the employee opinion survey every year. Eventually, they will outsource your department to India, give you a pittance of a severance and send you on your way, but you will be glad to get out and not have to go to that soul-destroying hellhole anymore.

    I worked at McKesson full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Compensation is average, Benefits are a little above average, Training opportunities that mostly applies to six sigma, lower management have a better rapport with their peers than upper management

    Cons

    I am just going to be forthright - Tenured people were backstabbers, do not provide basic training new employees, overall business model and objective, Goals and objectives changes monthly without explanation, Upper management lack a good rapport with their direct reports. no work life balance, over extended employee with unrealistic expectation, upper management forced lower management to put certain individuals on probation because of their personal feelings. Will not payout short term disability even if you are still under the doctor cares. Depends on the department, very hard to get promoted from within

    Advice to Management

    Management need to provide teambuilding opportunity that truly encourage professional relationship between Upper and Lower Management. Encourage relationships and build a stronger moral. Upper management every meeting do not need to be intense like we making a decision to release a nuclear boom. Provide fair opportunities amongst all other than your personal favorites.
