Great stable company to work with many career opportunities

Lead Applications Architect (Current Employee)
Woonsocket, RI

I have been working at CVS Caremark full-time for more than 10 years

ProsBeen with CVS/Carmemark over 10 years it has been a great experience. Over those years been promoted 4 times. People here genuinely care about one another. Like any job there are hectic times, politics, and budgets to deal with. Overall though being with a company that has grown so much in the past 10 years and having the opportunity to move around and grow my career has been well worth it.

ConsAs a large company there is a lot of bureaucracy so getting this done takes quite a while. The salaries have historically been on the low end but their is an effort underwhy to rectify this situation. If you are looking to go back to school or get an advanced degree at night tuition reimbursement here is abysmal.

Advice to Senior ManagementNeed to improve professional development as a whole, is seriously lacking compared to our competitors.
