Thread regarding McKesson Corp. layoffs

The reputation is getting worse

Does it seem to you that the reputation of this company is getting worse, especially with the new leadership? Are those at the top even aware of that?
I'm not at all surprised that people are leaving here (two of my colleagues and great experts left last week), nor am I surprised that people won't come here anymore.

McKesson has had a reputation problem as far back as I can remember, when I left in 2014. Just read through all the posts way back then. Truly sad! Management destroyed the employee base and product.

The grim reaper has gutted another technology department at a company. The word on the street is right, and everyone knew what would happen when she was hired. Security at most companies is usually seen as a slight drain, but a necessary one. Now security is an enemy at McKesson. A hackers delight, an already over taxed and undertrained department now. Not a place any professional would want to work.

This company is rotten to the core. Don't bother whistleblowing, the legal team have pay-rolled external counsel adept at sweeping the worst corrupt practices under the carpet. It is a place to hang your head in shame and the Opioid crisis is just the tip of the iceberg.

The whole place has gone down hill.
NF Firing people because they were white
incompetent and ignorant CISO
Whole sale departures across ISRM
8billion payout linked to their involvement in the opioid crisis (how will they recoup this 8billion....)
Sale of entire EU business (some sold already the rest just pending a buyer)
Zero trust or faith in leadership
Overall bad working environment.

Even their European SOC coverage is starting to lose people. I'm hearing there are less than a handful of SOC people left in the US. They really better hope they don't have a major cyber incident. Crazy that Upper leadership has let it get this bad this fast. I guess the bad decision of moving everything to Texas wasn't very smart. Texan's beware. Remember people leave companies due to poor leadership. BT needs to listen up because he's letting NF run this place into the ground. But she took a board position with another company, not sure how she has time for that. I pray, she doesn't, as she claimed "Get a good night sleep" before she gets a chance to lay people off and complete her 3rd Wave she so desperately seems to want before enough people leave.

The SOC is still currently being carried by their team in Europe. They are running on a skeleton crew in Arizona and Georgia. There are more interns now than full time analysts here in the States. Their Texas plan is a complete failure. At the rate of people leaving vs rate of hiring there will be no one to train the new staff aside from some kids fresh out of University with barely enough experience to handle a marketing email.

McKesson's reputation has become a laughing stock in the cyber security community. They've lost close to 90% of their security resources in the past few months. Word on the street is their SOC is currently being run by a group of interns fresh out of college with zero experience. Astonishing for a fortune 10 company that's supposed to be protecting critical healthcare systems and private medical records for millions of patients. Hopefully they don't become the next major news headline...
