Change in Cultures...Medco to ESI = innovation to institutional

Director (Former Employee)
Franklin Lakes, NJ

I worked at Medco Health full-time for more than 10 years

ProsOld Medco: Innovative, entrepreneutial, fast-paced, high risk-reward and collaborative. Fun, encouraging and exciting. No two days ever the same. You can contribute.

ConsNew ESI: Strong willed, convicted, logical, conservative, focused only on the core, Careful and calculated. Heirarchy dictated. No margin = no mission. Robotic. Order takers.

Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your employees...remain open minded. Take chances. Lead, not follow.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

ConsThe merger was not a good example of integrity, one of our key values.

Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your clients, they need help explaining internal jargon to their members. Not all clients are the same

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

Ok for the time being

Customer Service Representative (Former Employee)
Charlotte, NC

I worked at Medco Health full-time for more than 3 years

ProsWorks from home they provide everything, offer different schedules to accomodate you, you get $1 raise after 90 days. Benefits are great, You get a generous amount of vacation and sick time. You get bonuses for doing your job.

Consyou will get burned out quickly, Jan is their high season and no one is allowed to take off during that time. You feel like someone is watching what you do all the time. They are more micro-managed b/c you do work from home. The company is still starting people out at $12 since 2005. You would think that they would offer a higher pay after being in Charlotte for 7 years.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
