    Company is going downhill

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    Prosdecent pay, good vacation time offered

    Conseverything is being consolidated down to 1 or 2 places. Many Customer Service and System Support positions have lost their jobs yet the call volume is only going up. the departments that are left have no idea what they are doing. Customers are realizing this as well

    Advice to Senior ManagementI would hire more people. Call wait times for Customer service are ridiculous

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Just another brick in the wall

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGenerally smart people and many are patient access focused. Good industry reputation. Financially strong. Exposure to most of industry. Opportunity to work remotely.

    ConsNo work life balance. Management has a passive aggressive borderline personality disorder. HR is a joke. Compensation harmonization - pretty much a middle finger to everyone. Zero growth opportunity unless you are a cultural favorite. Benefits are awful. A new slogan or pep talk every month and it is not working. Constant communication breakdown. IT understaffed, under budgeted and under prioritized.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBeen there, done that and even when heard they are not listening. Style over substance.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Terrible company that might run itself into the ground

    Warehouse Associate II (Current Employee) Roanoke, TX

    ProsIncentives to get while working

    ConsExtremely low pay raises extremely strict attendance policies, long hours, terrible work environment. The company gains the business of biggest pharmaceutical store in the nation make over 400 million last yr and they decide a 500 dollar bonus is adequate not to mention you actually have to qualify for oh and now I get penalized 15 mins for being late 1 minute yea thats great.

    Bait and Switch

    IT PM (Current Employee) Chesterbrook, PA

    ConsWorst executive Mgmt ever - not what you know its who you kiss - HR doesn't protect the rank & file

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake a hard look inside at mgmt nepotism, degrading mgmt comments and how about doing a morale survey !

    The Talent Acquisition Process! - A great AREA of Opportunity and Continuous Improvement

    Senior Leader (Current Employee) New York, NY

    ProsHonestly – I don’t have any PROS comments.

    ConsI received a call from them, regarding an important process. After I got an initial call, and coordinated the next step interview, suddenly I received an email requesting to change the date, because the “person was extremely busy” that day. Then we re-scheduled another date/hour; that day I waited for the call…..never happened! I sent two emails, following up….after three weeks, no one responded. Definitively, NOT A BENCHMARK PRACTICE IN TALENT ACQUISITION.

    Advice to Senior ManagementShake-up the practice area, make sure you have the right talent in place - with the CARE to potential candidates.

    Note - I'm not a current or former employee

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    The worst CEO to this day!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Valley Forge, PA

    ProsThis used to be a great company with a great history.

    ConsWe are no longer a great company. This new CEO has no clue as to the value of human resource. Employees, to him, are an expense. I wonder if he can do all our jobs on his own because he certainly cannot do his. He cannot inspire a drowning man to take a breath of air. Our compensation package is on the floor. We are severely underpaid and our benefits are almost non existent.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEmployees are no an expense. But then again, incompetent managers do not realize that.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Very dysfunctional work environment.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsBenefits are excellent
    Some great people work there

    ConsPeople are promoted to their level of incompetence
    Company likes to talk about improving morale but does nothing else
    Employees are commodities that can be easily replaced
    The drug wholesaler business is very competitive with little margins
    Company is behind in technology and when they do implement new technology, it is done poorly.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMorale is low. You need to dive into why and fix it!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Salaries way below industry standards

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Frisco, TX

    ProsI love the people I work with, it's a stable company with large earning potential and growth, great benefits package

    ConsThe goals that Senior Management set for some of the business units this year were completely unattainable causing some to not get their bonuses. People rely on the bonus to put them somewhere closer to a salary they can survive on. This company does not reward it's employees. A 2% raise on an "Exceeds Expectations" review per year is not acceptable. People can't live on that and deal with inflation. I hear about a lot of people that are looking for either a second job or looking to leave the company completely.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGive back to your employees. You have experienced HUGE earnings, you should put some of that back into the people that have gotten you there. Especially the lower level workers. The amount of turnover has got to be costing the company quite a bit in training new personnel.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
