    Pros

    The company seems very stable and you don't need to worry about layoffs. Nice subsidized cafeteria. The technology in IT promotes a great learning ground. If you can survive a year in IT, you can look for another position inside the company and there are always openings.

    Cons

    The pay is lower in Woonsocket/Cumberland, RI, not much negotiating, benefits are expensive. Mytime is not ideal, tip - negotiate for as much vacation as you can. Getting into IT Management seems much easier than at other companies and therefore, managers are less experienced. (May just be my observation from a more myopic viewpoint of my own larger team.) The commute can be very much more trafficky than you may expect as there is really one way in and one way out of the industrial park near One CVS Drive. Many of the people who work in IT are obligated to the company; due to this, others take advantage. They squeeze as much of your time as they can get and there's no way to say no, Application Managers in IT are constantly pushing for more. Work life balance is not a balance at all...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think about Market Basket, treat your employees better... Seriously, there needs to be a huge shift in how employees in IT are treated.
