Pros

Strong financial footing, despite ESI setbacks Pharmacist-centric organization - their value is understood and opportunities for career growth are available; not of other healthcare practitioners Diversified healthcare services - lacking cohesive integration

Cons

Myopic senior management - focusing on script fills as the only meaningful means of revenue Antiquated systems - especially computer/IT that holds the company back. Resting on their laurels of success 1-2 decades ago - times are changing and they say they are able to change but no one does so.

Advice to Management

Bring in new leadership from the outside - too many like-minded individuals who only know the Walgreens way.

  1. Heading in a good direction, but difficult to build a fruitful career on the retail side due to lack of growth.

    Pros

    above average pay compared to competitors, some autonomy for high performing managers, a lot of money is being spent on innovation and connecting with today's consumer, better look/feel/product offering than our competitors and more financially sound, the environment can be fun/rewarding with a tenured, engaged crew--unfortunately this can be hard to come by due to high expectations and average pay for hourly folks.

    Cons

    work/life balance can be challenging as the stores are open every day including all major holidays, lack of career growth for fast track highly motivated employees beyond store manager role, currently restructuring so the next 2-3 years will be bumpy, difficult to get $15/hr work out of someone making $8/hr which is necessary due to high expectations for goal execution that will directly impact manager pay (bonus/raise) going forward

    Advice to Management

    Continue to invest in innovation and process improvements, narrow the focus of main priorities to obtain manager buy-in and execution, get back to the family feel that the company used to have by providing more perks/rewards for employees to keep them with the company.

    Pros

    the managers are great about working with your hours. if you need off for any reasons just tell them and they will make it happen. management is awesome and willing to answer all questions.

    Cons

    other employees can be not so great. you do alot of work for ok work. different managers can assign different tasks at the same time (can be a little irritating at times).,
