Culture of Disposable Employees

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

ProsIt is a large company, which offers some piece of mind, average to above health
insurance but costs $$, hours are good, and time off can be flexible. The company is
full of Good people to work with, who try to do a good job for our patients.

ConsThe company sets strictly enforced rate expectations for Pharmacist and
Technicians that are mostly unattainable without cutting corners. If
you are making corrections or needing to clarify something or spending
more than average time with a patient or doctor's office on the phone
then it will make it more difficult to achieve the expected rate. This
puts us in a compromising position, where job security is threatened at
the expense of potentially decreasing patient safety, and or not
fulfilling patient/client expectations. This is a perfect storm in an
environment where there are fewer and fewer jobs available. There has
been significant increases in efficiency's deserving of praise, but only
 met with higher rate expectations and threats. This company appears
not to appreciate its workers, and have stripped away the pride that
many used to have in their work. At the end of the day I am
increasingly left with the feeling that I didn't do the best job for the
 patient and deliver what their insurance is paying for and expecting.
There is also very little if any company sponsored events for employees
outside work hours.

Advice to Senior ManagementEveryone wants their company to succeed in this competitive market and would be
happy to see increases in production. But the current threatening work environment does not help a company to be the best, and most competitive in the Market Place. It Does not create a Team of Dedicated workers that collaborate at times to do the best job for their patients, but rather a collection of Individuals who are less likely to help each other knowing that it could hurt their rates and therefore their job security. These same individuals know that each time they catch an error and have to clarify something on the prescription it can directly lower their rates. Finding errors on prescriptions used to be a measure of an above average employee, who was praised for doing a good job. Now finding too many errors and spending time to correct it will cause them to have lower rates and ultimately risk loosing their job. Employees are moms and dads, husbands and wives, sisters and brothers and lastly they are also real people and our patients. If there are too many employees do the right thing and lay us off, or offer more separation agreements. If not measure us on metrics that produce a better quality product for our patients. There should be a balance between rates and quality incentives. Not only do these tactics do nothing to improve the our business and reputation, they put patients and contracts at risk, hurt the moral by demeaning the same employees who continue to give more of themselves, and lastly they do much worse by destroying the very Integrity of business we serve.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
