    I worked at CVS Health full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    nice employee discount
    stock options were great
    no limit on sick time
    nice coworkers
    there is a great cafeteria at the corporate office

    Cons

    lag in technology to limit employee efficiency
    no limit on sick time could be a con for those who take advantage of it
    need more vacation time so that employees take less sick time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    pay attention to technology that would allow employees to be more efficient
