General office work at McKesson

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Bangor, Gwynedd, Wales

I worked at McKesson

ProsLarge company - well reputed; diverse workforce; busy and challenging environment, fast paced. Friendly staff., pleasant management.

ConsUnderstaffed - not enough staff to handle the workload. Often required to work very long hours. Overtime a constant necessity, particularly when another member of staff was away. Difficult to take annual leave. High stress.

Advice to Senior ManagementMake sure staff levels are realistic relative to the workload; don't take on new contracts until it is clear that the company can handle the growth - lest contracts are lost due to staff being unable to deal with the demands of current/existing contracts.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
