    I have been working at McKesson full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    My co-workers are the only thing that keeps me going back, and the fact that I need to work. I continue to seek better employment.

    Cons

    Low pay coupled with high cost of health insurance make this full time job feel like a part time income. A company that profits in the BILLIONS annually can afford to make more of an investment in it's employees. When your full time employees qualify for social services such as Medicaid, those making the decisions should be ashamed of themselves. Employee turnover is constant and there are job fairs and ads running at all times. I applaud the management team for putting on a happy face and presenting this company as a great place to be over and over and over to every crop of new faces. It's got to be exhausting.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your employees and you will not have to suffer the financial burden of onboarding so many employees all of the time. Give a living wage so people can pay their bills and you will earn loyal employees willing to go the extra mile for the company.

    Pros

    They charge their customers very very high rates, so they pay their employees well. That's what made it worth it.

    Cons

    Organizationally they seem to be a mess. People are in positions to fill a spot and aren't very qualified. Operationally, they are behind the times.

    Pros

    McKesson was a good job with lots of great employees, some are still my friends even though the company moved to Iowa.

    Cons

    The company was terrible when it came to work/life balance. A great solid company, if your single. Hopefully things are improved in the new DC.
