Good work life balance, but not a great place to bring your career to the next level

Financial Analyst (Former Employee)
Woonsocket, RI

I worked at CVS Caremark

ProsGreat work life balance, generally stress free work environment.

ConsNarrow job responsibilities, lack of career development, lack of trust in employees, lack of communication, lack of interaction with those outside of your department, large company feel (i.e. easy to get lost in the shuffle) and sub par benefits. Most of this varies greatly from depending on department.

Advice to Senior ManagementYour success is determined by the success of the individuals working for you.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
