Application Developer (Former Employee), Markham, ON – October 20, 2014
Mckesson is a establish company in Pharmaceutical chain. I was working PTS (Pharmacy Technology Solution). It's good company but the technology they are using for software developer is now very old in the market.
Lead Oracle Apps R12 Database Administrator (Current Employee), Atlanta, GA – September 2, 2014
Good ethics, Productive and fun Place. Mckesson takes its employees suggestions to heart. If you have a good idea or a new and better way of doing something, they listen. There are not many openings because managers don't leave, that isn't a bad thing.
Health Systems Account Manager (Former Employee), NC – September 2, 2014
Pros: company car, gas card, cell phone
Cons: long hours
Most day spent driving city to city to see business partners, learned the ins and outs of what running a Health Systems pharmacy consists of and the difference between it and the retail pharmacy market. Management styles vary. The hardest part of my job was getting things done internally in a timely manner. The most enjoyable part of my job was the – more... interaction/relationship building I had with my business partners. – less
If you have done an order selection position before, and you know you have done well at that job, DO NOT work here. The company has great benefits, but is unorganized, and lazy. This particular location has a 60% accuracy standing, meaning the customer will get what they ordered 60% of the time. Corporate does not want you to work overtime, this location – more... will make sure you come close to that. You have 1600 pc orders that take 8 hours or more to ship, mind you this is a pharmaceutical industry. Anyone who works shipping generally knows that 1600 pcs is cake to load. I have loaded more in less than 8 hours. Your starting pay $14.52, is at the highest end of the tax bracket, be prepared to bring home less than if you were making $10.00/hr. – less
financial analyst II (Current Employee), Alpharetta, GA – August 27, 2014
The challenge of the job makes you look forward to go to work everyday. The work/life balance is great and a very supportive team to work with. I will recommend McKesson to anybody who wants to work with them.
Material Handler (Former Employee), Cheektowaga, NY – August 25, 2014
Pros: clean and safe work environment
Cons: shift changes
Its a fast paced atmosphere with minimal margin for error. The coworkers are all very different but it makes for many different learning conversations dealing with their past experiences to the present. Management is very company oriented and work within their abilities to improve the overall experience. The hardest part of the job is sticking with – more... the game plan after long hours or schedule changes that shake up your daily routine. – less
My position has been eliminated as accounts payable/expense due to the sale of PSS World Medical to McKesson. I am currently helping data entry and vendor reps for my day to day work as the transition continues.
Senior Business / Quality Assurance Analyst (Former Employee), Roseville, mn – August 25, 2014
Pros: safe work environment and even when laid off, are typically treated well.
Cons: offices and product teams find it hard to work together.
As you'd expect with any large corporation, your actual work environment will vary a lot... because it depends more on the individual office, product and managers you work with more than the corporation overall... so the usefulness of this corporate review only goes so far.
The offices, managers and product philosophies vary a lot.
Overall: -McKesson – more... Technology Solutions has constant org chart changes; change fatigue is a real problem at the lower levels. This is in part due to how McK has grown via acquisition, but it goes further than that too. -The compensation is good and employees are typically treated well/humanely. -The corporate culture is risk-adverse
I worked there a long time and do not regret it. – less
lack of communication within mckesson, lack of training

HIPPA people coming thru the front door. track hippa non-employment records. – less

Executive Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), Cranberry Township, Pennsylvania – August 21, 2014
Pros: always experienced something new and learned many different aspects of the business world.
Cons: management turn-over
McKesson is a growing company and gives each employee many opportunities to grow within the company. They have great training programs to help you to be able to do your job better. It is a fast paced environment and very demanding. If you have trouble multitasking, I would say this isn't the place for you. I enjoyed the fast paced, because it kept me – more... on my toes and never dealt with the same thing twice. Great place to work! – less
