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

    Pros

    The benefits are amazing. The work was important and fast-paced, but not difficult.

    Cons

    Lacked experience leaders to manage the "people" aspect of operations. Work-life balance was near impossible to achieve.

    Advice to Management

    Train and develop your team leads and other supervisors on HR Law, employee respect, and human capital management.

    I have been working at McKesson

    Pros

    No weekends or really late nights. Great Work/Life balance. Lots of opportunities for advancement. Willing to hire you with little to no experience. Awesome benefits and they participate in the Vitality program.

    Cons

    Could be a bad experience based on the program you get on. Have to really hob knob with management to get promotions. Not a lot of minorities in positions of power. Company picks and chooses who they’ll allow to work from home instead of offering it to top performers.

    Advice to Management

    Push harder for work from home. It will improve attendance tremendously. Be harder on low performing employees and stop allowing people to skate by. It lowers morale when you work hard and you’re paid the same as those who don’t even do bare minimum.

    I worked and reported uncompensated hours for 2 years. Management would not look into my claims. Off color comments are routinely made.

    Be more open to promoting in role to retain top talent.
