    Current Employee - Account Manager in Scottsdale, AZ

    I have been working at CVS Caremark full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Fully enjoy colleagues and the day to day relationships that are built/maintained. Also, the amenities that are provided such as the 24 hour gym is a great perk.

    Cons

    Compensation plan is not comparable to the market. If the initial salary pay was higher, there would be less turnover within the organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Knowledge of systems.

    Current Employee - Store Manager in San Jose, CA

    I have been working at CVS Caremark full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The pay is and benefits are comparable to other similar companies.

    Cons

    There are so many tasks and scorecards that we are graded on that it is impossible to accomplish all of them with the minimal help that the store is provided. If you speak up and voice your displeasure with the company then you are sure to get a visit from an executive who will notice that you didn't get everything done and then it is only a matter of time before you end up leaving the company. It is best to keep your thoughts to yourself and try to ride it out the best you can.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of your employees, they are the face of your company.
