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

Pros

This is the second time in my life that I wake up and can't wait to get to work. I love the company, and my job.
The corporate culture is sensitive to employee performance and genuinely committed to personal growth and success. There are numerous opportunities to learn more through the internal CBT system, LearnNET. The people are all open and friendly, and always open to new members, and will at least listen to new ideas, even when they are already committed to another plan.

Cons

can be confusing to navigate the culture
can be frustrating learning the rules of how to interact
remote management can result in managers being out of touch with whats going on, on the ground where the front line staff are.
There is very little tolerance for expressing any judgement. Even a wrong tone of voice can get you a meeting with your manager/director/VP depending on your level. This can be frustrating. However, there is always an opportunity to change and improve, and anyone will help you to understand and adapt.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

having your manager in a different location can be a bit frustrating. sometimes it feels like my manager is out of touch with my responsibilities' challenges. as a result, I can never be sure if I have their support in my decisions. In addition, when my actions are comments on by others, sometimes, my manager jumps to a conclusion rather than ask me about the issue. My manager is inconsistent in the support, which make me hesitate to act, sometimes.

    Pros

    Great for getting some experience as a Pharmacy tech or a new grad pharmacist. Good employee-employee communication and conflict resolution strategies.

    Cons

    The pharmacists are not treated so great, especially if you are the PIC. Pharmacy Technicians pay is below par. Limited Tech duties, like, company policy says that techs cannot reconstitute.

    I worked at CVS Health full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Compensates well as long as you're a pharmacist or store manager and above...

    Cons

    Don't expect even inflationary raises, the company posts great profits yearly, but it doesn't trickle down very well. The company likes to micromanage everything, then doesn't give you the tools to succeed or achieve it's ridiculous expectations. Suggestions to higher ups are often ignore or you get the generic response 'that's just company policy'. You either live with it or find a different job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees. Employee surveys are useless if you don't act on the results. For all the billions in profit, you can afford to pay your entry level employees better, not to mention give more reasonable raises, especially when you expect them to work all major holidays.
