I enjoyed working for McKesson, even during reorganizations. The writing was on the wall of the future state of IT, so I pursued other career options outside of the company, but overall, I felt it was a great starter job to get experience with a Fortune 500 and take that experience with me to negotiate better compensation elsewhere. Several people I worked with left McKesson to come back in another role simply to negotiate higher salaries which left a knowledge gap on the team/area they left. It's unfortunate that managers/leadership did not capitalize on the opportunity to dig deeper into the aspirations and dreams of their employees and find ways to help them achieve these goals. If they had, those working for them would have partnered by transferring knowledge and would likely not leave the company with a knowledge/person gap when they pursued those dreams/goals anyway.Like any large and older organization, the culture was well established and transformation needed to accommodate the needs/wants of up and coming talent was difficult. Old behaviors die hard. However, all that being said, there were perks that can not be found at all organizations, such as work from home, amazing co-workers, great benefits and paid time off. At the time I worked there, these things were more important to me.
work from home, work life balance, benefits, paid time off, amazing co-workers, energizing projects
outdated traditional culture of top-down behaviors, middle management squeeze, disjointed communication from strategy to delivery
