    Software Test Engineer

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsFamily-friendly working environment, flexible work hours, promote work-life balance

    ConsRelative low pay in general, even though the senior management did not think so. No plan on resources. Senior management believed that everyone can be replaced by anyone else, in regardless of an employee's experience and learning curve. No matter how many years of experience one might have in the industry, if one does not have a certain skill/experience, McKesson might treat and pay you as a junior no matter what!

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet yourself an X-ray and see if your brain is there!

    Worker Opportunity and Development

    Project Coordinator (Current Employee) Toronto, ON

    ProsTonnes of work opportunities and departments workers could move to and be involved in. Cross functional and departmental opportunities.
