It is true. Layoffs did happen at the Jacksonville Florida location yesterday, Aug. 7th. McKesson/ Change Healthcare / PerSe.... Laid off almost 40 employees. Not in a very professional way either. They emailed us Fri,, (really bad showmanship) telling us we are having a meeting on Mon. Different sections emailed out to different employees. Placed us all in one room and said you are no longer working here. Then went on about why, how. Then we were not even allowed to gather our own personal items. They had the management (of course kept their jobs) PACK OUR BELONGINGS UP IN BOXES AND HAD THEM SITTING AT THE MAIN DOOR! We felt like cattle being taken out tho the slaughter house. Very unprofessional. The management needs a lesson in human behavior and that we are not animal's and should not be treated as such. I think they let go of the wrong people. They need to reconsider the management that led the ruin of the company. Sending work to India so they can cover cost. But now we are gone and out of work. Nice job guys, I don't know how you sleep at night.

I would NEVER uproot my family or relocate to accept another McKesson position.
Just beware if you do: Layoff frequency, high outsourcing, no support from HR, high turnover, no training, poor management, dated systems and basically NO tech support.
If you are single, are mobile, have plenty of savings and self dignity, then go for it if you have no other choice.
But also pause and think about what your morals are and how you want to feel going into work each day. Even if I was offered a 20k raise, I would've left anyway. Life is too short to jeopardize your happiness and sanity. One person can't do the work of 4 plus educate the Indian labor on how to replace you.
Based on the recent exit of many top level executives, the opioid crisis and stock situation, I'd say McKesson is volatile right now.
I am actually thinking about taking a job with the company in Atlanta. From these comments I have pause and concern about it. Do you think it would be a mistake?
Announcement made last week in Las Colinas, TX office, several jobs going to Genpact.
Why you ask? Oh, because they do such a good job!
Relocate Carrollton, TX employees and One Post staff to Las Colinas, then can them and send their jobs to India. Sounds like a good idea to me.
Wonder how Texas feels about that since they gave McK so many cash incentives to bring employees there??????
That's how they RIF everyone. It shouldn't be a surprise by now. No doubt people will complain no matter what tactic the company uses.
Can someone elaborate on the new SOC in India? I am curious and need details about this....
Sitting in that dreaded conference room hearing that you have been let go of a job you have had for 10+ years was b---s---, however after evaluating the employees that was in that tiny piece of sh-- room with me made me realize they had to pick the higher paid most experienced employees that sat there for 2 months not doing a God dang thing on their time and money gave me a little satisfaction. For it being a "fortune 500 company" they were ghetto and cheap as f--- with no damn room for growth and shisty a-- ceo''s pocketing MILLIONS while our underpaid managers were paying out of pocket for us peasant employees to win a turkey at Thanksgiving. Ain't that some sh--? They will plummet soon and I am so GREATFUL for my layoff. It led me to bigger and better things.
I am truly sorry to all that were laid off. I am expecting my notice to be coming sooner than later. They have been pushing for monitoring to be sent to the new SOC in India, that has almost been completed so I believe the tier 1/2 monitoring and support will all be in India before the sale is final. I know Atlanta will not go unpunished and as an American Contractor, no doubt my job will be gone.
This company is filled with sociopaths in its upper management levels. As long they get their MIPS, they'll act like the worst kind of corporate parasite.
Management is just Jonny rock stars entourage
