    I worked at McKesson for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Salaries are comparable to other industries and once you add all other benefits, I believe they are ahead of many industries. Benefits are very good, include health insurance, 401K, and many others.

    Cons

    There are limited opportunities for upward mobility within the company. You have to relocate or move to a different business unit in order to get ahead.

    Advice to Management

    Create more opportunities by mentoring mid-level managers so they are better prepare to move to a different business unit in order to move ahead.

    I have been working at McKesson full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Ability to work from home; stock purchase plan for employees. Match charitable contributions.

    Cons

    Horrible management from managers to Group President level - thriving products, services and BU's run into the ground due to continued bad management. Employees are running out of the door as fast as they can. No ability to move up, much less make a lateral move. Lateral move for senior employees requires a 20%+ pay cut due to "new" job families and pay rates. No appreciation for employees overall, much less long term ones.

    Advice to Management

    Learn from previous mistakes. Outsourcing killer HzERM, yet now Paragon, the "move forward" product is over 70% outsourced to India. Working with the sites, code is awful. Anyone that cares is either gone or looking to leave. Should have kept Clinicals and/or implemented SCRUM/SAFe in Paragon 3+ years ago. The entire BU has been driven into the ground since 2009.

    I have been working at McKesson

    Pros

    Very nice company to work: decent pay, decent work life balance, good people, I like the senior leadership, ICARE, etc. McKesson is a good place to have a career and contribute.

    Cons

    It is a large, slow, conservative company. If that doesn't appeal to you, I would look elsewhere.

    Advice to Management

    No one liked the recent layoffs. I would continue to focus on the leading through ICARE, rather than leading through corporate earnings expectations.
