    I worked at McKesson full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Compensation is average, Benefits are a little above average, Training opportunities that mostly applies to six sigma, lower management have a better rapport with their peers than upper management

    Cons

    I am just going to be forthright - Tenured people were backstabbers, do not provide basic training new employees, overall business model and objective, Goals and objectives changes monthly without explanation, Upper management lack a good rapport with their direct reports. no work life balance, over extended employee with unrealistic expectation, upper management forced lower management to put certain individuals on probation because of their personal feelings. Will not payout short term disability even if you are still under the doctor cares. Depends on the department, very hard to get promoted from within

    Advice to Management

    Management need to provide teambuilding opportunity that truly encourage professional relationship between Upper and Lower Management. Encourage relationships and build a stronger moral. Upper management every meeting do not need to be intense like we making a decision to release a nuclear boom. Provide fair opportunities amongst all other than your personal favorites.

    The upper management can be hard to please. Sales growth of 10% or more is often expected.of seasoned reps that have more than 10 years experience.

    Advice to Management

    Find opportunities to enter new market for reps that aren't localized by specific geographic territory

    Flexible work hours, decent benefits, work from home capabilities (depending on manager)

    I worked at McKesson full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great pay in the beginning . Close to home

    Cons

    No defined training . Have to be a 'yes' person and not voice opinion or suggestions to management . Used by upper management to be the "Bad Cop" to employees, creating a back stabbing environment.

    Advice to Management

    Remove the "good ol' boy" stigma and be fair to all employees. Provide proper training and establish goals. Stop layoffs just to pay larger bonuses to the executives.

    Pros

    Lots of vacation time and great benefits including a wellness program

    Cons

    Poor upper management. Make department managers look like the bad guys. Communication within this entire company is pretty much non existent. Temps were walking in the door making $2 more per hour than I was after almost 5 years with the company. You let 44 people go and gave them an option to stay with the company in another position. You know its not too great when not even a hand full of people opted to stay. The rest used it as a way to get out!!!

    I have been working at McKesson for more than a year

    Pros

    McKesson is a wonderful company to work for. There are a lot of benefits to working at McKesson other than medical, dental ....

    Cons

    Upper management is very poor and non-existent. Everything is left for the shift managers and Team leads. Nepotism and favoritism is prevalent with the upper management (locally) and considered acceptable even among HR. Too many employees are left to do the job responsibilities of others that get away with not having to do their work - too much unethical behavior is allowed by protected favorites. Workload should be evenly distributed and not based on favoritism.
