Great organization overall. Not much opportunity in SLC, Utah area due to location being closed.

Pros

Large organization that seeks to implement methodologies and technology to increase competitiveness.

Cons

Not much opportunity for growth in the SLC, Utah area.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't let brilliant talent like me get away... Although I'm replaceable, I'm hard to replace. Now, some other organization is going to benefit from my technical leadership and ability to align IT initiatives to strategic goals and deliver!

    Pros

    Very large company with decent benefits unless you get laid off.

    Cons

    Old fashioned "patriarchal" style of company. Communication is authoritarian and often threatening, with exclamation marks after stern warnings about deadlines or procedures. Benefits providers are constantly changing, to CVS Caremark's benefit, no doubt. Employee costs of benefits are always rising. Recently they restructured PTO benefits, and slashed them across the board, and eliminated anniversary milestone rewards. A couple of years ago, despite record profits, the meager annual pay increase was cancelled, because it "wouldn't be prudent" with the economy as it was. It wasn't cancelled for all, of course, the VP above my department included the word "most" when he informed our team. The performance review system is constantly changing, as well. Every year a new set of bureaucratic hoops to jump through to hopefully obtain a modest pay increase or bonus, which they appear to be trying very hard to avoid giving you. Always asking for more from the employee while giving less if at all possible. Raises and promotions seemed few and far between amongst my direct coworkers. My salary was low for the industry, according to many calculators.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be less greedy. Treat employees with genuine respect.

    Pros

    Cops used to be a great company to work for. Now the only reason many long term managers are there is because the money is pretty good.

    Cons

    No home life balance, lack of ethics, every field manager is just watching their back...only care about themselves. No ability to manage on your own...you follow a guideline for everything in your store.
