    I worked at Medco Health full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits and salary potential. Company has long set up great processes for professional development, Human Resources and other operational structure.

    Cons

    I worked in a subsidiary. Difficult to get decisions made because of layers and layers of approvals. Most decisions had to be run up through every leader, and, even if they had no expertise in the subject, they had an opinion that stopped projects. Difficult to get anything done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire good people and trust them to do their job.
