    Former Employee - Pharmacist in Troy, NY

    I worked at Express Scripts full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    None...really. Maybe casual dress.

    Cons

    If you are a Pharmacist, don't walk...run!! I left for ethical reasons. They measure your productivity and if you can't process 100+ prescriptions/hour, you will not meet your metrics. The plus in the 100+ is not small, either...120-140+ is more like it.. They divide the work into buckets - Dr Call, Verification, Drug Interaction and your metric depends on what function you are performing. If you reject one for concerns about the dose or a drug interaction, etc you don't "get credit" so it's actually more like 200/hr. All kinds of games are played. There is NO WAY an ethical Pharmacist can meet his or her professional obligations under those circumstances, so I left. It was my only option because the numbers were only increasing. It is DISTURBING and I don't know why the boards of pharmacy in the states where they operate aren't doing anything about this. There's all kinds of things that go on in that company. If a patient has gotten isosorbide mononitrate (Imdur) for the last 5 years and the dr writes for isosorbide dinitrate 1QD, don't question it...send it. There are far worse examples, but I know I was spoken to about referring that one for md call.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember that you are not flipping hamburgers...these are people's lives.
