    Great place to work if you really want stability.

    I worked at McKesson

    Pros

    Each team has its own dynamic so when you get hired you tend to be with the group that fits with your personality.

    Cons

    This is a big corporation that has a lot of red tape for everything. It's difficult to really run with a project because so many people have to approve everything.

    Advice to Management

    I'd say that if they hire competent people that they really just need to let people make decisions on their own without micro managing.

    Pros

    work/life balance is above average. Work is challenging and you will learn a lot from people with tremendous amounts of health care or logistics experience. The company encourages its associates to take new roles and try opportunites

    Cons

    Very frugal, which is necessary in the industry, but often at the expense of well organized processes and systems. compensation could be better

    Advice to Management

    Plow more earnings into technology and infrastructure

    Contractors are given a lot of projects and have little or no induction. You have to learn on the go and Deliver.

    Better induction and orientation for new employees or contractors.
