    Pros

    Decent work-life balance. Good location.

    Cons

    Lots of favoritism and very top-heavy. Large layoffs occur every 2-3 years. Employees have to "own their career" via ilead which means management has washed their hands of us. Not very transferable experience.

    Advice to Management

    Stop asking HR to saturate Glassdoor with positive reviews.

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

    Pros

    Good benefits-excellent coworkers-flexible schedule-reasonable policy to work from home-several business units with many opportunities to move across to find new challenges and business focus

    Cons

    Majority of technology division built by acquisition-lots of money spent buying those companies, but did not focus on putting the needed money, time, and resources into creating a seamless and truly integrated enterprise suite of applications for healthcare providers and payers. Pending merge of most IT business units with Change Healthcare may hold significant changes for current or potential employees.
