    Former Employee - Population Health Statistician in Franklin Lakes, NJ
    Former Employee - Population Health Statistician in Franklin Lakes, NJ

    I worked at MEDCO full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Exposure to the most unique opportunities for improving PBM services, people's health, and learning more about disease, well being and improvement of health or quality of life in the U.S. Access Big Data is its potential.

    Cons

    Lack of knowledge on how to use its data to implement change and make wise decisions is the downfall. Medco/Express Scripts is focused on self, not clients earnings, not the health of people. It's hard to believe that such a big company can really believe 'The sicker you are, the more we make'. Its work is spent mostly on market earnings and income predictions, and how to improve profits not client or patient successes, or how to make people healthier. Workers unwilling to share skills and knowledge. Very unethical. Reports to clients were statistically invalid and misleading; would not heed warnings about this and as a result lost 50% clients in one year just before going under. Managers never utilized employees to their fullest potential. Teamwork is absent and claims of it are a hoax. Managers don't allow for criticism or personal comments about this in your annual reviews. Managers aren't smart in the field, they just how to manage.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of CEOs, Directors, VPs and find medically trained managers who have health care quality in mind, not their retirement accounts. Find leaders who have knowledge and experience in the field and stop hiring outside managers who couldn't tell a bioengineered drug from a 50 year old generic, except by price. Develop a way to use employee's potential.

    I worked at MEDCO full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    A Monday thru Friday job with regular business hours. Not very common in the Wholesale/Retail Business today. Most locations (8 in total) have fair to good managers. Makes employment fun.

    Cons

    Bad apples in Upper Management Chain need to be and should be addressed. Operations is the back bone of most companies and Medco treats Operations just like most companies, like the unwanted child! The majority of your employees are truthful and honest and you treat them as if they are replaceable at the drop of a hat! No wonder moral is low!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Review your Sr. Management. Bad attitudes start there and roll down!
