    I worked at McKesson (More than a year)

    Pros

    The Vitality program helped to make benefits affordable, while also offering incentives to stay healthy.

    Cons

    Managers with the Breast Pump team play favorites and allow the favorites to do as they please without penalty. Decisions for the team are not well thought out, and made without any regard to how it may affect team members or clients alike. Of the 5 or 6 managers that work in that particular department, maybe only 2 step up to be around and help when needed. In the end, I had to leave since I didn't want to play into the popularity contest. HR has been notified multiple times (by multiple people) of the wrongful things going on and nothing has been done. Many people left or would like to leave because they feel as though by speaking up or saying anything remotely negative will rock the boat and cause terrible consequences for themselves. If you don't suck up to management, they make your every day at work a living hell... only to then gather at the end (or middle) of the work day to laugh about it and talk about anyone and everyone with your favorited peers. Managers will share private information or things that otherwise should never be told to someone who is not management to the favorites of the department. If you value yourself, do not work here!

    Advice to Management

    Start being managers and stop concerning yourself with the popularity contest and high school environment that now exists. You've given bullies the power over the hardworking employees you can't afford to lose but are losing anyway. Start acknowledging people who bend over backwards and work hard for you.

    I have been working at McKesson full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Pay is good but not good enough.
    Full time benifits are to par.
    Theres value in the work but not working for company.

    Cons

    Company tries to paint a picture that material handler employees are valued but compay polices dont share the same colors.

    Unfair polices keep getting stricter and stricter making it more difficult to almost impossible to meet all standards or even maintain long term employment. "All in the name of emprovment".

    Anyone who has worked with mckesson long enough knows its a revolving door at material handler level of employment.

    Management pretends to listen to your opinions and complaints with no real intentions of changing anything. "This is just a social gimmick"

    Advice to Management

    Make sure you put "must be willing to sell your soul" and "super human" as part of job requirments.
