    I have been working at McKesson

    Pros

    McKesson has great benefits that can make up for the lack of salary

    Cons

    McKesson doesn't always pay the best because they pay based on market rate but also the there are salary ranges and managers are not held accountable for ensuring their employees are in the range. I had talked to 2 HR people about my employees and correcting their salary to market rate and there was not an official process for merit increase or for people that are below the market rate

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    HR Management needs to step up at McKesson and review what the line managers are doing because employees are getting screwed over.

    Pros

    Many options to work in various departments (speaking from experience in 10 years I've been in operations, six sigma, contracting sales and marketing). Very laid back culture with a great work like balance.

    Cons

    If you stay with company and not looking to move up eventually the pay won't be what you could get in other positions, but there is so much training and opportunity to advance you can keep up with market averages

    Pros

    Consistent company management
    OK benefits
    Attempting to meet customer requirements for better service
    People are nice; there is very little personal animosity.

    Cons

    McKesson has become more and more bureaucratic as the SAP system has grown. It takes a tremendous amount of planning to move relatively small changes into production.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Customers are not satisfied with the cost and turnaround for changes to the system. Needs to be improved.
