What do you think -- is this company going to survive and thrive? Are they looking to expand their staff, or do you think layoffs are inevitable?

How does McKesson stack up against the competition?

FYI...I spoke with a woman at this company regarding an opening that they posted for employment in November of 2006. She stated the company was closing down in CT sometime in Feb 2007.

The problem with McKesson is that they are outsourcing everything they can. This makes the bottom dollar look better. That's to bad becasue McKesson was a very good company to work for.

I work for MHS and we just got merged with MPT. Anybody knows if this will result in layoffs? Managers are talking about "synergies", "alignment", etc., very confusing stuff.

McK has always been a high stress place to work. I think I worked harder there then in any job I have ever had ( I was in
accounting)and the pay was not equal to the work expected. Also you can never really relax in your position always wondering if your position will be downsized out to another location (as was mine) or the DC will close.

Most jobs in Georgia do micromanaging to get quality results from their employees.

I have worked at MCK in MPT division for 15 years (started with HBO&CO) and have seen many changes. It is the worst it has ever been and started declining years ago when there was a change in upper management. Employee happiness is no longer a priority as the work load has become too much leaving very little personal time. Also, the pay is pretty bad and each year the raises get worse and worst because they will no longer give people a good score on a review unless they are super human. They preach ICARE principles and put it as a goal for you but the executives do not practice what they preach. The sad thing is the customer is suffering because of it and upper management will turn around and blame the worker and not themselves. Currently, the added stress on the employees is compounded by the fact they there have been layoffs recently and haven't replaced anyone that has left in over a year.

ICARE in Atlanta, Georgia

76 months ago

McKesson Pharmacy Systems layoffs 35 plus employees without practicing their own ICARE policies. Written into their own employee handbook. What this means is that they will fire anyone at any time they push and
manipulate people like it says. This is a fact layoffs include people who have been working there 34 plus years. Story of another Corporation that destroys, disregards their own corporate policies...I hope those at the top get their just deserts..! Want more fact stay tuned...!

(***the ICARE Shared Principles of Integrity, Customer-first, Accountability, Respect, and Excellence—are at the very heart of McKesson. They motivate us to deliver return on investment for our partners, push us to create a positive environment for our employees, and guide us as we strive to help our customers succeed.***)

Mckesson well the MPT division is doing lay-offs,,, some people just moved from Arizona. Packed up their whole family and put their entire life into boxes to be laid out 5 months later.

Mckesson makes its employees work by ICARE practices but they dont treat the employees with the same consideration.
Strange how managers that caused the money lose are still working for Mckesson. People that knew the earning are off did nothing to fix the issues or problems with the sofware.

i thought Mckesson was a great company but working there you quickly learn the have a clear cut GOOD OLE BOYS club with former GE employees...never worked anywhere that the trail of friends and buddys could be traced so clearly.

Hello

Currently work at the Mckesson office in Michigan under the MPT division. This office was under Per-Se which was then bought out by Mckesson. The problem that I'm trying to deal with is that since Mckesson has bought us it seems that everything just seems to be the same as usual no new "mckesson" stationary, pens, pencils and the like along with their being the same Per-Se sign hanging outside the front of the office.

Also with the few phone calls that we have received regarding the budget crunch, hiring freeze and among many other things makes me feel that some layoffs are coming possibly in the not to distant future. Not upset about this, but I was wondering will they give us a fair enough notice due to the fact that we do handle valuable information of clients/patients or do you think it will all happen without notice-we walk in and then be sat down and talked to of what is taking place. But then again I may be concerned over nothing-maybe they may just keep us as we are as long as we are doing what we are suppose to due in keeping the company successful????

Tell me what you think on this

I don't work for MPT, but they have the reputation of being a "kinder, gentler" division of McKesson. I would think that if layoffs did happen, MPT management would handle them tactfully and professionally.

Good luck!

This person said it the best(see below). I also spent 15 years at MCk and had GREAT reviews, won awards and was Laid off at 49 years of age by my manager and HR. Mck has yearly layoffs and this year I hear they are forgoing layoffs for now but instead employees will not get raises. How does a fortune 15 company not give raises? Watch and see how much Hammergren and Pam Pure get for this year and then tell me they practice ICARE principals. The sad part is their are some wonderful and knowledgable people that work at MCK but MGT would rather lay them off and hire the green beans which in turn causes the customer to suffer.

If I were you I would be concerned and keep your ears open for any unusual comments. I work for Med-Surg in Detroit and they are closing us down the beginning of February. I am very disappointed because when I hired in 10 years ago I thought this company had a lot of potential and good job stability. We were district of the year and are numbers are very good buisness wise for our district. The company is still going strong not really getting hurt by the way the economy is right now but yet they are still closing us down and putting people out on the streets adding to the unemployment rate when there is really no need to shut down. They have been asked point blank what is the reason they are shutting our district down and they just keep saying its a buisness decision (Safe corporate answer).

There have been speculations as to why we think they're closing the Detroit District down. One is all the bad surveys, getting a lot of being critical of management, the company itself not caring about the employees and raises being below average at best not to mention the unfair reviews that happen. There was a co-worker who had never called in and was never late and yet was given a 3 on their review for attendance which is average, that's just not right. The other speculation is the lawsuit they settled out of court for I believe 350 million, I guess closing us down is a easy way to recoup their loses. Just be carefull with this company they will do what they want without caring who they are hurting. Let me put it this way Jim Smith if your familiar with him came in a year ago when we were getting ready to do a union vote and said just give us a chance things will get better the union got voted down and a year later this same guy comes in a tells us their closing our district down. It wouldn't take a whole lot to make this a great company to work for, replace them with personable people and make it more of a family atmosphere but it just won't happen lots of turnover at the top would have to happen, too much company greedyness.

this company SUCKS AND THEY ARE VERY SELFISH ! Med surg in suwanee,georgia,too many favortism.Some employees have over 9pts and they suppose to get fired,but they don't. But the employees who don't have any pts don't get recognized.If u notice the longer U work there, the less pay u get every year, It doesn't matter how good your review is.This company is suppose to be on production,but some of employees who don't meet their production get away with it bcuz the supervisor are buddy buddy with them.This company get whatever money they can get,they say"budget"but all the money they don't spend goes in their pocket.

Thanks for responding, with all that is going on with McKesson regarding the lawsuit(which I had heard about also)I do feel this may impact us also. If they do lay us off due to the way the economy is-especially for Michigan, do you think they will offer any additional assistance financially or any type of job training assistance to help us get back on our feet. I've been around for the past 7 years, and haven't really trained in anything else since I've worked here.

Just for some odd reason I just feel uncomfortable with that same sign hanging out our building for the past two years(Per-Se)along with the same old Per-se routine...I don't even feel like were apart of McKesson

They are offering severance pay (2 weeks for every year of service) which I guess is better than just showing up and the doors being locked, but then again they wouldn't do that because they don't want to tarnish the McKesson name, that's probably why they settled out of court the lawsuit so it wouldn't get out into the media. They ar also offering relocation money if you're will to move out of state to work at another location. Problem is if you have a house good luck selling it in this housing industry. I'm in the same boat you're in in that I don't have a lot of training like you other than the experience I've gained working at McKesson but it's not like learning a trade or something like that. Most positions at McKesson in the warehouse they know they can replace people with no problem because in their view we are a dime a dozen. I don't want to be to harsh because they do offer some good benefits options but there is a lot of suspect things happening in the company. Majority of the people at my district know this.

Sorry to hear of your Closing of the office, McK does offer a nice severance package only because it tend's to make people happy so maybe they won't strike a law suit on them. Just my opinion on that one.. Bottom line is MCK DOES NOT care about you and it's all about being number 1 in healthcare and how much Money they can make. MCK has become a company that allows managers at all levels too have a free rein on what they do. And when you allow that then the managers are out for themself and how much money they can make..MCK created this cut throat environment about 7 years ago and it will not stop anytime soon. Again I say no raises for the employees in MPT this past year but watch for the end of year numbers and see how much the upper management gets in raises and bonus money.. Then you will see what they are focused on and it's not employees and for sure not Customers....

Thanks again for the response. Good on the severance pkg, but also as just recently noted all the problems going on with unemployment right not is kind of concerning me alittle. Would not mind relocating but as you said houses definently are not selling so I'm stuck also! But if worse comes to worse will be willing to relocate but then there's the issue of payrate for the place of relocation will it be expensive? they do have alot of offices in the Fl,GA area which are alittle pricey. Well will see what happens. Again, sorry about the closing of your office...if you need anything let me know.

Hello
responding back to your response regarding bonuses and pay raises. Really hoping that this is not the case it would be unethical for them to
portray this type of leadership. But also at the same time I have witnessed things with old company that I worked with that really did not care about what was going on: poorly designed software you had to work off of, unorganized even on the routine daily grind, speak to mgmt about concerns but not get anywhere and then to top it all off no raises. But you had to find away of meeting your monthly quota and plus. As long as you were somehow bringing in the money that's all that mattered-very stressful. Never even received a thank you...but did know that the mgmt did receive bonuses for how much money was bought in. Sad

Believe me that there are many places in Georgia with very reasonable housing costs. And they're getting more reasonable all the time. Property taxes here are a fraction of what they are in northern states like Michigan, Illinois, etc. Good luck!

How does McKesson stack up against the competition?

When you say stack up against competitition what do you mean. Mckesson may have been a good company years ago but I know that in HAC I have a Manager who is bent on having me fired for no reason. The unethical things I have had to put up with not to mention a software that causes tremendous problems of which we are blamed for continuously. ICARE means I dont't care IDCARE because the unethical behavior is not reflective of what is propogated. The stuff they have put me throguh I owulod not wish on my worst enemy and of course in GA they can do whatever they want with you no one really gives a..... Save yourself the drama and anyone else reading this and go to a company whose repuration prides themselves in setting you up for success not in setting you up.

Saara,,, Sounds very familiar.. and I bet you went to HR and they of course take the managers side and will tell you that... Make sure you document everything and anything and keep.. There are things you can do just document and find a good person to help you if they terminate your employment,, but you have to be patient with the process cause it may take a while,,soon I will be giving them a little legal present for all their courtesy and ICARE of my many years spent....
