    Good company, a bit stressful

    Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) Dublin, OH

    ProsStarting salary was $13/hour. Many opportunities for advancement. Ability to work from home. Supervisors were approachable. Upper management was accessible and cared about associates.

    ConsLong interview process, multiple interviews over several days. Lack of consistency and nowhere to find answers to some questions. Some stress over sending the wrong medication to customers, this is a big deal. Although the starting pay was high, after first review at the end of the year, we only received a .20¢ pay raise for the next year.The training ended at 5pm so we got caught in rush hour on the way home.

    Advice to Senior ManagementShorten the interview process and create an employee development plan.

    Great learning experience in a good company

    IT Pretty good

    Director (Former Employee) Franklin Lakes, NJ

    ProsGood salary, benefits
    Decent work environment
    Generally good people

    Management often jumping around from crisis to crisis without staying focused on strategic priorities
    Corporate Blame Assignment is a formalized process

    Advice to Senior ManagementNone really -- company has been sold and is being integrated into Express Scripts (a smaller company before the merger)

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
