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

    Pros

    Get to work at home with resources available via instant messaging for computer issues or clinical questions. Good pay and benefits.

    Cons

    Recently there has been pressure from upper management to meet time metrics without fail. No consideration about the patient. And no consideration of the nurses individual contributions.

    Advice to Management

    Do not expect that staff will meet the time metrics each and every month.

    Pros

    A very collaborative environment. Great people to work with and the new buildings are amazing.

    Cons

    Upper management makes decisions that directly impact employees, yet when they solicit feedback, they don't seem to listen or act upon the employee recommendations.

    Advice to Management

    Listen more to the individuals that have a long tenure with the company. They have seen it all and have a pretty good insight on what may or may not work.

    Good people trying to do the right thing.

    Upper management driven by profits over people. Embracing diversity is really just talk.

    Pros

    A very wealthy company that has built up a good reputation. They treat their employees well benefits-wise. You have the opportunity to interact with a large amount of Senior Management on a consistent basis. Even though it's a massive company, you have the opportunity to get to know a lot of your colleagues very quickly. There is always an abundance of resources. The RSM position can be very lucrative. New CEO seems... good.

    Cons

    Industry is taking a nose-dive, so there are a lot of pressures coming with the job. If you don't hit your numbers, you could be gone in a second. Because of these added pressures, you're focusing your priorities on the quantity of meetings/interactions you have with clients, rather than the quality of the meetings. It seems like the upper management consistently have hundreds of tasks to conduct daily, which leads... them to forget about building their team and helping them focus on their individual goals. Very corporate-based and it's very easy to get caught up in a popularity contest among managers.

    Advice to Management

    Develop a better training plan! You can't expect a new RSM to be hitting the road knowing four days' worth of the industry and expect to sell millions of dollars' worth their first year, especially in a declining industry. Have upper management focus more on developing their sales teams.

    I worked at McKesson full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The benefits are good at least.

    Cons

    Management ask too much of their employees they under value hard working employees and hold one's that don't work hard way above than where they need to be. Certain managers have their favorites like most companies do. I did my fair share doing two peoples job and then some. The environment there is so stressful management likes to bark orders while they sit in their office. A couple supervisors there were so... unprofessional and some didn't know what the heck they were doing. They cut cost on a lot of things and in doing so the employees suffer if they upgraded what they needed too everything would run soo much smoother and make things so much easier but of course upper management like those bonuses they would rather have money in their pocket then worry about employees under them. They constantly blow smoke up your butt then wonder why they have such a high turn over rate. So no I would not recommend anyone to apply at mckesson if you want to be over worked, under paid, and under valued then thats the place for you if I could give them zero stars i would.

    Advice to Management

    Quit worrying about the bonuses and worry and do for the employees that keep you employed and the company going. Its time to stop worrying about yourselves and start actually managing and helping instead of sitting in the office all day on your phones and quit worrying about being a friend and start acting like a supervisor. Because the lack of knowledge, leadership, and under valuing good employees you will loose... good people all the time.

    I worked at McKesson full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Good benefits, flex working hours

    Cons

    Extremely poor upper management. Lay-offs used as a common practice to cover poor planning. Blame the ACA for cutting benefits when it is the greed of the CEO.

    Advice to Management

    Employees are the only true asset treat them as such. The company Does not behave in a way that demonstrates anything other than lip service to diversity.

    Very flexible in terms of letting employees work remotely. Great work life balance.

    Cons

    Lackluster culture. Upper management mostly white male. Quite deficient options compared to other large corporations re: health care benefits, particularly considering that this company is in the healthcare industry.

    Pros

    Employee appreciation events, fitness center, decent benefits, & cafeteria

    Cons

    Not a lot of action taken towards career advancement, some upper management individuals, and stressful work environment depending on program worked

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on developing experienced/seasoned agents into higher roles, especially when the opportunity is available. No one wants to feel stuck, which you as upper management should know first hand.
