Unorganized from top down.

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Typical big corporation. They promote people not qualified for the role but in doing so control the narrative. Was shocked at how disorganised such a big company was. Floor level workers work hard and are good people.

Pros

Not many

Cons

Too many

Only side advencements. No opportunities up.

When I first started working here they bragged a lot of being an amazing company. I guess that's one way to know someone is not telling the truth, because you do not need to say it if true.I learned later that all opportunities for advencements are sideways only, meaning the exact same pay, and nothing better in terms of roles. The management is very unexperienced and very biased.The work is very high paced and stressful, which would be okay if the pay reflected as such, however the salary is poor. If you're a great company, then pay better wages.Kitchen is basically breaking down, old, and digusting.There's nothing to be proud of working there.

Pros

Learn about pharmaceuticals

Cons

Low pay, poor management, no advancement, terribly grotesque kitchen, small office spaces.

l'équipe est renouvelée de façon cyclique, je dirais chaque 3 mois à l exception de quelques anciens.

Pas si positif, car 9 mois après mon licenciement, je continue de recevoir des courriers me parlant de salaire trop ou peu perçu et mes appels téléphoniques et un déplacement sur place pour avoir une explication claire et fiable sont restés vains , par manque d interlocuteur.Cet aspect de l entreprise ne me plaît pas,car je ne comprends pas ce qu elle recherche à terme à travers ces correspondances ainsi que leurs conséquences sur ma vie.

Pros

café gratuit

Cons

venir parler de salaire perçu par un employé qu on a renvoyé il y a plus de 7 mois

Extremely fast-paced, very busy workplace.

I was grateful for the work experience. I worked extremely hard and, put in long hours.Unfortunately, I was overlooked for promotions, despite my strong work reviews and, remuneration, because I was English-speaking!

Large company with good job safety

I have worked for McKesson for 4 years. The team was excellent and I enjoyed working with them overall. COVID times were tough, but that was the case everywhere.

It is okay for a few months but, this is not where you build your career

You are overworked and undervalued. There is no way up. There is no room to be better. It is okay if you need to work for a short while. This is not the company to build your career at.You pay to attend company Christmas party.

Pros

it is okay to get started

Cons

extra work load while they complain on overtime

Cons

Zero accountability

There is zero accountability from management when it comes to employee performance, cleanliness of the work area or work/life balance. If issues at work effect your personal life, management will turn a blind eye and almost condemn you for the issues.
