    Former Employee - RN Triage

    I worked at McKesson full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Good training orientation program , benefits, tuition reimbursement, weight watchers, Vitality program.
    I was a work from home employee which was a desire of mine. Good incentives for overtime.

    Cons

    Nurses not treated as professionals. IT professionals are priority over a nurse and often talked down to by IT and leadership.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To focus on what nurses do best with their patients, "quality" instead of "quantity" of calls. I have always been a respected nurse for the knowledge that i have, but not at McKesson.
    Nothing you say matters, you are not listened to.
