    Growing company with strong culture. Opportunity to advance and development programs are strong. People are fantastic to work with. Good benefits and flexibility. Solid company with great future.

    Mid-management could use better oversight and direction. Also, they should be given a louder voice when new initiatives are rolled out.

    I worked at CVS Health full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    CVS has some good people here and there, but it doesnt make up for the poor leadership from the top.

    Cons

    CVS is notorious for paying under the bar, which is why their competitors (Catamaran) like to snatch the employees to grow themselves. The politics in the office are VERY strong, I have seen people disappear from groups like Benefits, Desktop Support, Account Management all because they disagreed with leadership,. or made a bad call once. No warnings, no nothing, just gone. CVS doesnt like to follow through on thier Work/Life balance, My first few weeks there, I was working 12 hour days until I put my foot down, and in that i was threatened with write ups and discipline. Regardless that my work was meeting deadlines. This is a company that I would be very reluctant to work for again, and I would never recommend anyone work here. HR is shoddy, the company does hire and fire sprees just like sprint. and the irving office is empty right now because everyone got fed up and over 200 people quit.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house, get morals, and get to work on making this a place people enjoy working.

    Pros

    Some work from home although not enough for me; overtime possible if you want it especially in the winter.

    Cons

    Training is lacking; not enough work - life balance. I don't think salaries are as competitive as they could be.

    Pros

    Ability to work from home 2 days a week. Work life balance is great ( While not in Welcome season) Lots of opportunity to grow and learn the PBM business.

    Cons

    Few employees which means bigger work loads. Welcome season is hard and it will test your ability to like the company.

    I have been working at CVS Health full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Coworkers are great. Gym in the building. Employee discount. On site minute clinic. Decent benefits. Eventually you may get one or two work from home days.

    Cons

    Low pay. No work life balance. Micromanagement. Raises are a slap in the face even if you are a top performer. Overloaded with work. HR is somewhat invisible and directs you to your manager who then directs you to HR. Favoritism among some managers. Stress takes toll on your health. Holidays fall during busy time of year when they are demanding 70+ hours a week so you may have to have xmas dinner then log on to your laptop and work till 2am

    Pros

    Flexible with schedule most of time.

    Cons

    Management doesn't take responsibility of what they have done and are quick to throw you under the bus. No work life balance. Retaliation is huge here. Unable to move around due to retaliation and unrealistic demands.

    Advice to Management

    Take responsibility of what you have done wrong. Encourage your employees to move on to better opportunities.
