    Pros

    Strong culture, promote from within, value employee development.

    Promotions aren't about who applies for the job, but more a pre-selected candidate.

    Pros

    Diverse and inclusive workplace. Decent salary and benefits. Good work/life balance. Working with people committed to improving the lives of patients.

    Cons

    CEO's indecent amount of compensation. Worry about company's level of responsibility in the opiod epidemic.

    Remember that your first duty is to patients and do everything you can to help end the opiod crisis.

    Pros

    They had a good sense of community spirit and team collaboration. Very nice people to work with.

    Cons

    Too little resources - so many of the resources were shared with other departments so that delayed progress. The merger with Change Healthcare.

    I worked at McKesson full-time

    Pros

    Being around people, Yet able to stay to myself because I like to focus at attention to detail jobs. I was able to train the new people coming in the skills I learned over 9 years.

    Cons

    Not being able to spend more time with my daughter. Missing out on special occasions whether it was dance recitals or school luncheons.

    Advice to Management

    I am a really hard worker , I show up on time and like to be the last one to leave. I have lupus so it has forced me to stop working so much physically. It has not discouraged my strong work ethics.

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

    Pros

    McKesson took employee engagement seriously. I feel like they constantly tried to come up with innovative ways to create an engaged, informed, and happy workforce. A lot of this effort was lost on the front line workers in the DC, but I worked behind the scenes and was able to see the effort first hand. Also, there are a lot of perks for field management employees. Lots of fancy conferences and summits. Also, in the DCs, leadership frequently fed people and threw fun events trying to show appreciation for their workforce. There is a huge emphasis on Diversity and Inclusion and they offer a lot of innovative programs in this space.

    Cons

    McKesson is not the most transparent company. I don't think it is on purpose but when you are in the field you are often the last to know what is going on. Also, they could have higher standards for performance at the management level. There are a lot of mediocre long time managers that are allowed to be mediocre to avoid confrontation. Career opportunities are pretty much unlimited, but you have to be willing to relocate. This is both a pro and a con depending on your situation because if you can't relocate it is a long shot that you will be promoted.

    Advice to Management

    Raise the bar on your DC supervisors and managers and raise the pay to reflect those standards. Keep trying new things in the D&I and Engagement space. Those truly show that you care about the culture you are building and the people that work for you.

    Pros

    Great work life balance and decent pay.

    Cons

    McKesson frequently restructures and consolidates the employees each quarter. I think that most publicly traded companies do this though.
