Smart people bogged down by repetitive, redundant corporate-think
Marketing Communications (Former Employee), Alpharetta, GAMay 27, 2015
McKesson is full of some very talented individuals, almost all of whom are worried about their job security given the frequency of business unit and division reorganizations, shifts in upper management and regular, recurring layoffs. We have wonderful products, and the best part of the job is talking to actual customers and creating material that depicts our software in the best possible light. The worst part of the job is all the unnecessary layers of difficulty McKesson builds into every process, whether it's another process meeting on the process for the recommended process for making a presentation, or 15 legal & technical accounting reviews of a social media posting. So. Much. Bureaucracy!

Very by the book with rules..regimented
Sr. AR Representative/EDI (Former Employee), Shelton, CTMay 27, 2015
Pros: Experience, long time employees, dedication
Cons: Short breaks, Scolding for talking, favoritism, no job security
You go in put your headphones on and work hard all day. Talking to co-workers is at a minimum.
Daily life included a routine of processing orders via EDI, then working the past due sent file the rest of the day. A lot of phone calls to insurance companies and investigating of denied claims.

Corrupt and Hostile Environment
Accounts Payable Specialist (Current Employee), Richmond VAMay 24, 2015
Pros: benefits
Cons: mean and unkind people
I am a top performer in my Dept. but performance does not matter.
That only makes the others on the team jealous so they stab you in the back every chance they get. I have been there for 10 years and have been bullied the entire time from the top down. My Customers appreciate me and would hire me in a minute but I am hated by my entire department. McKesson is a mockery of their own rules and regulations. I will be leaving soon and I cant wait to get out!

Great place if you are in the right business unit.
Director (Former Employee), MTSMay 22, 2015
McKesson is divided into two major delivery arms - the distribution (pharmaceutical & related) and the technology arms.

Distribution and anything supporting the pharma business is the preferred place to be. There are business units within the technology arm that are viable (Relay Health, Specialty Health). The others are in the midst of realignment to meet market needs.

It's an amazing place to work for people looking for an office setting job. They train you on the job, and make sure you know what your doing before the let you fly solo. They have great benefits, and paid time off.

RUN FAST AND RUN FAR
Accounts Receivable/Medical Billing Specialist (Former Employee), Lewiston, MEMay 17, 2015
Pros: Flex Time, PTO. Learned enough to move to another company.
Cons: Everything
This is the most hostile environment I have ever witnessed. So much favoritism between management and certain workers. Unless you are one of the workers who's lips are glued to managements butt all day every day, you are not going anywhere and your life is made miserable. Bullying is definitely allowed and ff you even try to stick up for yourself you are treated even worse, including from management. HR is useless, they are there for the company only, not the employee. The people in Lewiston have absolutely no idea how to be a manager. It is either with complete bullying and intimidation or being way to passive with certain individuals.

My manager is a slave driver with never an ounce of gratitude!
Senior Patient Account Representative (Current Employee), Ludlow, MAMay 16, 2015
Pros: friendly co-workers
not employee friendly, management needs to learn some people skills, the pay is lousy. The workload is above and beyond daily expectations. No fun.

Con's:
- Massive Layoffs every year in March.
- Lack of Promotional Opportunity.
- Lacks Synergy (What's reflected on a Corporate Level doesn't translate to a local level).
- Lacks Leadership and ethics on an Executive Level to Senior Management Level.

Terrific people, many great experiences for savvy professionals
DIRECTOR OF BUSINESS INFORMATION, DATA MANAGEMENT (Former Employee), Alpharetta, GAMay 12, 2015
Pros: Latest technologies across enterprise, many great people
Cons: Frequent big layoffs
Many exciting enterprise-wide programs and technology transformations to take advantage of if you can cross silos. The people are wonderful to work with. The only downside is that there are very many layoffs, and at increasing pace so longevity is not assured. But it's a worthwhile experience.

McKesson is a great place to work with good people. The atmosphere is always supportive if busy. However there is real concern for the employees and their work life balance.
