Pros

Big company, many project opportunities if you take initatives

Cons

Huge layer of redundant and generally incompetent middle managers, they serve as feud inside the organization

Advice to ManagementAdvice

More downsize to make it leaner. Shuffle people to bring competent new hires. Separate track for corporate and store

    Pros

    Walgreens has excellent benefits as far as healthcare and the 401K employer conribution. The compensation is comprable to other similar jobs.

    Cons

    Walgreens expects a lot from their employees. You are expected to do the work of 3 people and not get paid for that amount or quality of work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide more assistance and support to the pharmacy. We do make over 60 percent of the profit for the company.

    A traditional retail company which focuses on the employee.

    Pros

    The style of company promotion which focuses on promoting from within. Although the company is slowly catching up technology wise you can still tell where some of the traditional aspects of the company have remain unchanged. Depending on the store manager raises can be in the ballpark of 65-85 cents a year, very generous within the retail sector.

    Cons

    The pay can be low but that is to be expected in retail work. The initial training system which acquaints the work to the Walgreens system could use some work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your employees well to increase store morale.
