Pros

Job Security. Top retail pharmacy in the country.

Cons

Red tape, poor corporate communication, illegal payroll practices, unsupportive management, no advancement opportunities. Frequent minor violations. Safety violations, ADA violations. Expensive, and poorly administered health plans. Employees are forced to use CVS to fill prescriptions. Arbitrary increases to prescription copays in excess of 80%. Imbalanced pay structure. Workplace that frequently violates FLSA regulations, FMLA standards, OSHA regulations.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop profiting off of employees by forcing them to use CVS pharmacy for their prescription benefits. Offer a more comprehensive and afforadble health care. Increase accountability of upper management. Utilize and enforce labor laws. Create a workplace of mutual respect and inclusion.

    Pros

    They pay you. There aren't any others. The stock option is ok, but they lock it down, and you can't move your money readily. It's a bad time to talk about 401k's in general.

    Cons

    Too many to list. All the problems of working for a publicly owned company with none of the benefits. Very little interaction with managers, an unwillingness to take action on issues that actually matter, little passion, and much desire to avoid real responsibility. Almost no encouragement or motivation that isn't a transparent motivational ploy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Talk to your people. Let them know how they are doing. In truth this review only applies to a small division of CVS, so my statements cannot be taken too generally.

    I have been working at CVS Health full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Lots of decent people work there, local management are trying to create communities that cut across team silos (i.e. automated testing, mobile development, etc). Plenty of evenings out, if only to say goodbye to everyone leaving the company. Can have 1-2 trips to the US each year.

    Cons

    Poor local management (but gradually improving), with very leadership being displayed. Teams are either crazy busy with impossible deadlines or have absolutely nothing to do. Experienced people are leaving quickly (often within 6-12 months), forcing people with inadequate experience to try and act up. Not a happy place to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a grip.
