I worked at Medco Health full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Good salary, benefits
Decent work environment
Generally good people

Cons

IT goes to great lengths to avoid any impact to "production" systems ... but it turns out "production" is nearly everything
Management often jumping around from crisis to crisis without staying focused on strategic priorities
Corporate Blame Assignment is a formalized process

Advice to ManagementAdvice

None really -- company has been sold and is being integrated into Express Scripts (a smaller company before the merger)

Recommends
Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Medco Health full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Working from home and a weekly pay check kept me at the company for a decade.

    Cons

    Customer Service - Too many "Active Listening" programs made each call torture...There were 30 points that needed to be hit to complete or pass a call. When Medco realized buying "Magic" was a mistake, they still made the reps use it, because they paid so much for the program.
    Most supervisors were curtious and understanding.
    Managed Care - Several managers have been there WAY too long, and have become unethical and just down-right nasty.
    Now they have fired everyone they condsidered was 'making too money.' And then had the nerve to tell them they could re-apply at the next hiring event, and start at $12 an hour.
    After 10 years, I was ready to get out. Looks like Express Scripts is just another low-wage job in a company that hands out jobs in Manilla. Great way to invest in America George Paz!
