    Pros

    No pros. Other than a check weekly that cleared. They treat their employees like garbage. Very unprofessional environment. Lazy supervisors that sat behind their desks reprimanding people for asking a question.

    Cons

    1. Unprofessional people 2. Throw others under the bus culture 3. "Worst place to work" it was voted in 2015 4. Slow computers 5. Working in BCR, questionable practices no integrity 6. Don't be fooled by positive reviews ESI is trying to save face due to being on the worst places to work list 7. Constant fear of layoffs

    Advice to Management

    Clean house. Morale is so low. Do you know that unengaged employees sabatage your company? Actually care about us.

    Pros

    I don't have any Pros for this company

    Cons

    This company phased out some employees jobs because they didn't want to continue pay them what they were already making for the long years that they had contributed to the company.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management is to be on look out for your positions because I believe the company will continue its closing process in the city of Memphis.

    Pros

    I cannot think of anything good to say about this company. I am extremely happy I no longer work there.

    Cons

    Work comes first. You're personal health & well being and your family come last. United Steelworkers union is a blessing to protect you from mgmt abuse. Wish I didn't have to give at least 1 star to submit review - completely unearned. No stars is my rating.

    Advice to Management

    Stop treating your employees as a commodity that can easily be replaced. Learn to value & respect them as human beings which have brains and are able to think. The reason the USW Union is in some sites is to protect the employees from mgmt's pettiness & abuse of power.

    Pros

    work at home environment available and many opportunities for overtime

    Cons

    1)Poor training. 2) Company is VERY reactive instead of pro-active. 3) Company seems to be moving towards contract positions vs. salaried employees. This causes increased stress in the team and a lack of job security

    Advice to Management

    develop a solid training module that can be adapted for any situation. The company would greatly benefit by developing a team of trainers. But most importantly they should invest more time and money in staff training.

    Pros

    I am suppose to type 20 words and I have not one good word to say about this company.

    Cons

    This company is still the worst company to work for. They continue to layoff their best employees. They are trying all these different processes and nothing is working. Let's just face it, you have never been and will never be a Medco.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of no clue George.

    Pros

    Post merger NONE with the exception of the 401k and the dozen or so good employees left.

    Cons

    This just goes to show you what kind of company we are dealing with. ESI gets voted the WORST co. to work for in the US after being rated second worst two years in a row, and then a bunch of bizarre 4 and 5 star ratings begin to appear on GD. Reviews are all posted around mid-July and all written in the same sentence structure. Does ESI really think people are that clueless?? It's obvious that ESI can no longer attract good talent, and most of the talented people have already left running for their lives. The word is out there. Nobody wants to work for a company like this, especially when there are so many better organizations out there without a horrendous reputation. If you value life, and your well being do NOT even bother applying to ESI. I can't even to begin to describe the things I experienced while I was there, and wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy's dog. A very scary environment IMHO.

    Advice to Management

    Denial is not just a river in Egypt. All your good people have left or are looking to leave for a reason.

    Pros

    Nothing! This is the worst company I ever worked for in my 30 years of employment.

    Cons

    The HR department in St. Louis was tasked to submit phony 5 star reviews since it was rated the worst company to work for. Please note NONE of the 5 star reviews have the employee names, and they all started after the worst company article was published.

    Pros

    No pros at all. They will let you go with no warning and let a few know ahead of time. Amazing how they had other positions lined up already.

    Cons

    All I have to say is RUN ... Do not work for this company. Any positive reviews are from upper management.

    Advice to Management

    Why start now with any advice.

    Pros

    Can work from home, that's about it. The cafeteria is nice - you never have to leave.

    Cons

    Not sure why all these positive reviews started popping up immediately after this company was ranked as the #1 worst company to work for....Must be an HR ploy to get this organization better ratings. People hate this place. Some with a passion. The turnover this year has been tremendous; people are leaving from every department and from various roles.

    Advice to Management

    Fix the culture ASAP if you want to retain your employees.
