Hipocrytes
Field Support Technician (Current Employee) –  Saint-Laurent, QC14 March 2019
Management performed all required sensitivity training and boasted zero-tolerance for harassment, but ignored complaints regarding supervisor offences. It made for a volatile work environment which led to the dismissal of several employees that made a stand against a tyrant.
Pros
Generous Km allowance
Cons
Volatile, caustic work environment.

Absolutely atrocious company and coworkers

Left because of the terrible work environment & coworkers. As a PA I was packaging & shipping meds, putting away supplies basically working as a labourer. I did nothing pharmacy related & was treated like a slave.
Pros

Cons
everything

Accounts Payable Clerk to Credit Analyst (Former Employee) –  Markham, ON28 February 2019
Really enjoyed working for McKesson. They provide a good work/life balance. Have participated in several team building events and other company events organized by social committee. The management staff have held monthly town halls to keep us informed about the changes and the direction in which McKesson is headed.

Good company, but has a monopoly mentality
Lead Project Manager (Current Employee) –  Mississauga, ON5 February 2019
Its ownership of most of the market share makes this company slow and unwilling to change. The culture, although varying in different departments, has become stale. Instead of collectively determining the right course of action to tackle changing market landscape, they fire and hire people on a weekly basis.

Warehouse Worker (Former Employee) –  Moncton, NB31 January 2019
Great place to challenge yourself and push beyond limits. Friendly coworkers and bosses feel more like colleagues than rule enforcers. Fast pace and challenging when need be!

No room for real growth
Sales (Former Employee) –  Canada25 January 2019
McKesson, as large as it seems, doesn't have a lot of opportunity for growth, especially on the sales side. You are always pushing McKesson's agenda, with little regard for the pharmacies they support. Not a great place for people with aspiration and drive.
Pros
work life balance
Cons
it's all about McKesson

Communication
Commis senior aux comptes fournisseurs - Entrepôts (Current Employee) –  Montréal, QC14 January 2019
McKesson a toujours fait preuve d'un manque flagrant de communication avec les employé(e)s, peu importe pour quelle(s) raison(s).

La culture de l'entreprise est basée sur les 'clients d'abord', souvent au détriment des employé(e)s.

Malgré tout, l'ambiance entre employé(e)s est très bonne. Et c'était plutôt agréable d'y travailler.
Pros
grand stationnement gratuit pour les employé(e)s
Cons
aucune discipline pour contrer les têtes fortes mais heureusement, il y en a peu

Good place to start working!
Caseworker (Current Employee) –  Mississauga, ON10 January 2019
McKesson is a great place to start your career in Healthcare - however, I would say that after 8-12 months, there aren't many new things to learn and the days can get pretty mundane.
Pros
Flexible hours, good benefits
Cons
Hard to grow as an employee

I would never go back
IT department (Former Employee) –  Montréal, QC5 January 2019
Worst company I have worked at, and after talking to many people who have worked there, they have a pattern, if they want you out they will do everything to make you leave and you will feel miserable and like something is wrong with you as HR will back them up.
Pros
Fridays finish at 12 most of the year, nice facility
Cons
Long hours, management and HR are stuck up and ruthless

McKesson
Case Worker (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON21 December 2018
McKesson is not a bad place to work, most people are nice. Case workers are underpaid for the amount of work expected.
I left because I felt I was underpaid.

Terrible company to work for.
Data Entry Clerk.I (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON17 December 2018
McKesson does not care about their employees, they treat them with no respect and they'll discriminate against you. All they care about is making their millions of dollars.

Intense
Employee (Former Employee) –  Canada4 December 2018
Transparency is a challenge, with open/honest organizational employee communication...

Workplace culture - iCARE & iLEAD are the principles "spoken" within the Organization, from Leadership Team down - for me questionable at best...

Management is very guarded in what is disseminated amongst employees, the dilemma is every year the year-end letter comes out stating: "... it is because of your efforts... our people.... etc.... resulting in Company's continued success..."

However, McKesson just 'fired' across Canada, the entire BDR sales force at end of November 2018; which at this time of year is unconscionable and shocking for an Organization indoctrinating iCARE & iLEAD principles.

In my opinion, off coloured firings prior to Christmas truly are reflective of a lack of "True Leadership"; unfortunately, these types of decisions aren't so obvious when ploughing through the Company Financials, it goes much deeper than that.

Not so obvious at the Top, you'll have to decide for yourself...

Great and welcoming environment, very fast-paced
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) –  Mississauga, ON10 November 2018
You must be able to be patient and maintain a positive attitude with customers, as some issues can be very tough to handle. Managers and coworkers are great, they always try to push motivation and encourage you to continue working, by providing rewards (pizza lunches, donuts, candy) Hardest part is dealing with irate customers, best part is the people and how understanding managers are
Pros
free lunches, good management
Cons
angry customers, dealing with issues
