    Pros

    Benefits and benefits and benefits

    Cons

    This company is a micro-managing, cliquish, nepotism company. The managers/directors/vice presidents should all be fired and new management should be hired to help the morale in this company. No growth potential unless you are in the in crowd.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit.

    I have been working at McKesson as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    The people there are really nice.

    Cons

    No training program or material. I was left there to figure out the job with little aid. I was hired as a contractor and was told not to return after my 3rd day. No valid reason was given. I received a phone call telling me to not return.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate better with new hires.

    Pros

    I worked in the Maple Grove MN location, most co-workers were great and we watched out for each other and helped each other. I believe this is what you called team work.

    Cons

    The top guy was afraid of his shadow and did not enforce policies equally. If you were a female you could just about commit murder and not be disciplined. If you were a guy and brought a problem to this manager he would twist it so you were the bad guy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Enforce policies equally, take the blinders off.

    Pros

    Entrepreneurial division very focused on success of customers

    Cons

    Corporate had bled the division for years, taking profit and not re-investing in the business. Senior management supported clearly horrendous decisions that anyone could have seen would be train wrecks from a mile away.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be so easily bulldozed by San Francisco and Atlanta.
