      The intersection of low self esteem and set importance

      Pros

      Generic creature comforts that come with being part of a global Fortune 500 company

      Cons

      Depends on manager/department I guess? But you can expect shouting matches with your boss on a fairy regular basis. Here is what I can 100% attest to from direct experience : Being told by your boss’ supervisor that your boss will continue to bully and demean you until he/she “feels like they can trust you to perform day to day work in a competent manner.” McKesson’s Richmond office converts task masters into people managers, and the results are what you’d expect: Tone deaf people with grossly unearned senses of self importance. HR is a joke too; truly a clean up crew for management. Word to wise: zero expectation for confidentiality with HR. Your conversation with HR will be relayed to your manager word for word, and you’ll get scheduled for a “check-in” where you’ll be called out for having the gumption to suggest your manager is out of bounds.

      Pros

      Work Life Balance. Most teams are very flexible with start/end time, working from home, workload, etc. This is by far the best part of McKesson, for the most part you won’t be overly worked or stressed. In general, people are nice and get along well with each other. People are open to get things done together as a team.

      Cons

      Salary and Benefits are way below par. They don’t seek to ensure everyone is paid fairly across the board so you have people at all different ends of the salary band. This definitely does not bode well for minorities groups who will need companies to take a better look at salaries and ensure they aren’t contributing to the pay gaps. Upward Mobility is near non-existent unless you are in Strategy. People have been in the same position for 10+ years. You will definitely need to leave your team or company as a whole to get a promotion. Also, make sure you align yourself with a leader who is trying to make upward moves if you are seeking promotions. Diversity and Inclusion is so far behind the times. Lots of talk, no action behind it.

      Pros

      McKesson as an organization is great. I love their commitment operational excellence and community involvement. Senior leadership seems to sincerely care about society as a whole (as well as shareholder value.)

      Cons

      The organization is very large, and thus hard to navigate. Routine tasks are sometimes exacerbated by tracking down the right people and navigating bureaucracy. Commitment to employee engagement is will publicized and the words are great, but actual commitment to the principles varies by team.

      Pros

      - Great company if you are a white woman/man—you will surely soar! - Advancement opportunities quick and plentiful for those who are deemed a “culture fit” and engage in politics - Competitive salary and benefits - Remote work options and flexibility - Seemingly empathetic, kind CEO

      Cons

      - Nasty-nice culture - Culture of dysfunction where limited bandwidth and excessive meetings are commonplace, where everything is a fire drill and reaction to the whims and wishes of out-of-touch executives/senior leaders - Inflated titles in excess ( VPs, SVPs, etc.)—duties are more aligned with Sr. Director/Director level roles. In turn, this creates a trickle-down effect with subordinates carrying much more than their fair share of work - Overt favoritism and nepotism, especially in the HR organization - Inconsistent expectations and clarity around career progression, especially for BIPOC - Poor training and onboarding - Homogenous C-suite and management team; lacks diversity in every sense of the word - Lack of development and advancement opportunities for BIPOC employees, especially mid-career - Lack of transparency; critical decisions impacting employees’ livelihood made under the veil of night - In a word, a good old boys club through and through

      Pros

      My experience working with McKesson is a very positive experience and the overall McKesson is a good company to work for. The culture is good and work/life balance is good and the Senior Management Team is very knowledgeable and support the people. The pay is good and the internal job opportunities are available to the handworkers.

      Cons

      The pay is good but the internal promotion can be difficult since I have been in the same job level (same role) for the past 5 years.

      Pros

      Bonuses are excellent Compensation was good Work/life balance Great co-workers

      Cons

      New management was brought in at the end of 2019. Rumors of layoffs began in 2020. Management attempted to quell them by telling employees "not to worry". Those rumors became reality and management did nothing to encourage anyone to stay. That began the mass exodus of many technology employees. Performing job duties became more difficult, as no one was being hired to replace the employees that left. Management seems to be under NDA's and cannot speak about it. All positions were being backfilled in Texas, and if anyone wanted to make a lateral move within the company, they were required to move, also.
