eCommerce Downtown: great location, not great for growth

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Chicago, IL

I worked at Walgreens full-time for more than a year

Prosmuch younger, and more vibrant than Deerfield. Most people in marketing had some type of agency background

Conslike any huge, older company, it's all about bureaucracy. Promotions weren't really based on quality of work or value added to the company but rather office politics. If you're young but hard working and smart, too bad. You won't get promoted if there are older people on your team who've been working there longer than you.

Advice to Senior ManagementTake advantage of your location and take care of the younger talent you're able to get because of it.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
