    Pros

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

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

    Pros

    Great work life balance and decent pay.

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

    Pros

    Enjoy work flexibility. McKesson is family oriented and allows employees to work from home when needed.

    Cons

    Constant change. Change is good but not when deadlines are looming and employees are moved to teams with no knowledge base.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees more when it comes to suggestions on how to organize teams.

    I have been working at McKesson full-time

    Pros

    Close to alot of resturants and the freeway and shopping as well as grocery stire and gas stations only pro is the pay.

    Cons

    Feels like highschool very clickish, supervisors have their favorites, alot of side conversations not about work not alot of overtimw available for non pharmacy trained people, the matrix absence managment it is really hard to speak with your claims examiner and they don't reply for weeks you have to continuously call

    Advice to Management

    Please don't allow supervisors to pick favorites or speak to certain people on their team unless it specifically has to do with that person, also allow non pharmacy trained people the same overtime as those that are trained

    I have been working at McKesson full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I am able to work from home. The hours are flexible. The benefits are comparable to other companies. Pay is on the high end for the industry.

    Cons

    Excessive focus on new products to the detriment of mature products that have great ROI for customers.

    Advice to Management

    Not really much since the software side has been sold to Change and Allscripts. In any case, Senior Management has never seemed to have a grasp of the software development cycle and made decisions that obstructed the process of developing good software that has a high ROI for customers. Examples would be repeatedly offshoring development of new products and new functionality.
