McKesson announced this morning that Pamela J. Pure, executive vice president and president of McKesson Technology Solutions, has left the company as of yesterday. No reason was given for her departure and no replacement was named.
I have been on the customer side of mckesson software for 12 years. 12 years ago the software was awkward clunky, and behind the times. Today their software is, clunky and behind the times and no one there can tell me how it works or how to fix it everything is a workaround.
Seems McK isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. I would know since I work there. Right now my issue is: STOP OUTSOURCING OUR JOBS you greedy pigs. Everytime I turn around I hear about people being laid off, moved. It sure looks to me that more and more of our work is being outsourced to OMEGA. Now we’re loosing all coders except two, correspondence gone, payment posting, gone. We now get to do OMEGA’s poop work because they are a bunch of incompetent idiots over there. But hey, McK’s making more money. Isn’t that what it’s all about. I am thoroughly disgusted with this place. Yes, I’ll attest to the different rules for different people, sneaky things going on, keeping people in the dark till the last minute then jumping their asses for not having this or that done. What a piece of work. Don’t get me wrong, I am greatful for having a job at this juncture in time. Just can’t believe I ended up working for a company that doesn’t support America. Let’s support wealth for CEO’s!!! Yeah, go team McKesson. Oh and thank for all the T-shirts you hand out every year for “Community Days”. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to pay my electric bill with a T-Shirt!!!!
I had interviewed for a Horizon job. Now I am so glad that they were so openly racist – Americans need not apply. You have to be an Indian, or a Korean (and not speak very much English).
For those of you who don’t know. McKesson imported the same incompetent people who screwed up the product in India to the US for an encore! HR is supposed to turn the other way while they let those jerks hire their relatives and countrymen. Sorry if I’m not too broken up at their failure.
I know a lot of past/present McKession employees, and a lot of them seem to have been damaged by the experience. Mostly, they seem to have lost their moral compass (seeing open corruption uniformly rewarded has its impact). The tales they tell me of open unethical behavior are kind of hair raising. OK, I see that this is NOT a place I want to work.
On the other hand, I certainly LOVE competing with you guys! A three-person company with a little focus (and maybe some business ethics) can pick off customers left and right. I’m going to have a long career in healthcare IT – without ever working at McDirtbag.
