    Pros

    Was very stable for a time
    Work/life balance
    Hands off management

    Cons

    Was obvious that McKesson wanted out of the software business in some healthcare areas
    Business direction and leaders changed before plans implemented
    Lots of off-shore development

    Advice to Management

    Try to stick to a plan on move forward with it. McKesson would alienate long term customers looking for bigger customers. Move forward with newer technology.

    I worked at McKesson full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Paid Time off and Benefits

    Cons

    Only care about numbers

    Advice to Management

    Management has no regards to a work life balance, they want you to bend and bend but will not do the same. If you have a voice a target is placed on your back. Only one department which is Pharmacy Help Desk, which is in Forth Worth and Alpharetta Ga . Management is very unorganized and still figuring things out. If you try to interview for another department the manager will go out of his way to see that you don't move.Going to HR only makes matters worse.

    Some managers are actually really great people. Intelligent, strong leaders and generous. I was fortunate to work for and with some fantastic individuals during my tenure at McKesson.
