    I have been working at McKesson full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I've found it a fair, respectful place to work....a very good place to have a career. Nice people in general work here. I work in corporate, so the experience in other parts of the organization might be different.

    Cons

    It is corporate and slow, though that is a feature of many large organizations.

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

    Pros

    Company size and financial status is impressive, and it's easy to get lured in by that. Flexible work hours and telecommute is an option. New facility in Irving is really nice.

    Cons

    Very deceptive processes involved with disciplinary action, and blindsiding is common. It is extremely difficult to fit into the "cliques" and your manager will most likely NEVER have your back in any situation.
    Whomever the accuser is, they are always right; and you neither get to face you r accuser or defend yourself.
    I was "released" without ever being written up for anything, even though my attendance was flawless.
    1 or 2 of my accountabilities wrote something negative on a client survey, and I was gone. No Performance Improvement Process; not even a week to get my business wrapped up. I was released at 10am on a Monday. By Noon, I was no longer an employee.
    Awful treatment throughout uppoer management and leadership on the HR side. Some of them lived in other states and met me once or twice, yet their subjective impressions cost me my livelihood.
    They even tried to block me from getting unemployment when I requested it: They lost, of course.

    Advice to Management

    "Human Resources" means that you use your workforce in such a way that you leverage their skills to the betterment of your company. It does not mean that you throw people out after a year on the job, loyally working, just because a person turned in a negative review online.
    Nothing was ever even communicated to me about what went wrong.
    And everyone is passive-aggressive and won't be honest to your face.
    What an awful feeling it was to find out that this Fortune 5 company wouldn't lower themselves to pay me to finish out my week. They obviously didn't care about me, my family or my well-being at all.
    My advice would be to practice the "high standards of HR excellence" rather than just give it lip-service. Rather than pretending to care about your people, how about really showing interest in their success. Loyalty goes a long way for a company when it is reciprocated.
    I would never, ever return to a position at a company like this, where respect is undermined daily.
    Even my own manager, with whom I had a great relationship, let me go without even trying to fight on my behalf or even trying to help find a different role for me.
    That told me everything I needed to know about the largest Pharmaceutical company in the country.

    Pros

    Great Company, if you have to work McKesson is a good place to do it. Wonderful down to earth upper management. Lots of learning opportunities. Things are changing all of the time. Employees have the opportunity to join teams/groups that effect real change. McKesson has been around for 180+ years and it is a huge corporation. The management is always striving to make things work better for everyone which in turn helps the bottom line.

    Cons

    There are a few cons but I can't think of anything at the moment.

    Advice to Management

    Bring back lower priced health insurance coverage. I know this is a pipe dream with the way the world is now.

    Fortune 5 company, salaries are fair, benefits are fair, possibilities and training to increase your skill set.

    Cons

    Typical corporate america, make money, save money, do more with less, don't expect a long term job. Company is going through a transformation. Fewer offices and fewer employees. Selling off pieces of the company.

    Think about keeping american jobs.

    I worked at McKesson full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Our business unit worked from home 90 - 100% Found out I love working from home. Much more productive and better for work life balance which is huge. Both the company and I saved money as well. Highly recommend !!!

    Cons

    Our business unit was sold. In big business you never really know how long you will be employed by the same company. Any company really. I've heard not many business units utilize the work from home like this business unit did and I love it so much did not want to transfer to another business unit.

    Advice to Management

    Try more WAH "work from home" pilots. Respect is HUGE. Use it or get out!
