A great company with an incredible foundation. Unfortunately, those standards don't apply in supply chain divisions.

Pros

Company at a corporate level has great value and shows sincere dedication towards it's employees.

Cons

Employee benefits are some of the worst in the industry. Management at the site-level (D.C., in my case) is BEYOND blasphemous. They will treat you like dirt, like you don't matter. Promotions are granted on a "who-you-know" basis, and those in charge don't know anything about standard management procedure. If you want to feel like dirt, have your morale dropped, and feel as though you're unwanted and replaceable, then JOIN WALGREENS!

    Pros

    Have had some very nice co-workers over the years. This was once a very stable and happy place to work. Since the initiation of Rewire for Growth, which is just a nice way of saying that there will be terminations, it hasn't been the same.

    Cons

    Extremely low morale in the IT area. Unstable environment with upper management continually changing directions with outsourcing, off-shoring and reductions in force. Very unhappy environment for employees over the last 5+ years and steadily declining. It may just be the nature of the field now, but what was supposed to promote collaboration and streamline projects has only added extra layers of bureaucracy and created an incredibly toxic work environment. There is very little incentive, other than having a job, to continue employment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employees are the bottom line, not you.
