I have been working at Walgreens full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Used to have a lot of "pros". Now it's mostly "cons". There are a lot of good people working there.

Cons

The company is rewiring positions. Essentially one management position is being eliminated, and another is taking it's place. That position,Shift Floor Lead (SFL) does the same job as the MGT, but is paid significantly less. The position of Executive Assistant is now re-named Assistant Store Manager(ASM) and there are Assistant Manager Trainees (ASM-T). Many good MGT's are being asked to step down, while weaker, inexperienced people are being hired and rushed through to ASM-T positions. On top of all these changes, the company is starting to lose really good Store Managers. People that have been around for a long time, and have done a lot of good thing for the company. I know of three that left, who had a combined 50 years of experience. Yet, corporate seems to ignore this. Alloted hours for stores are constantly being cut, pharmacy runs short on hours, and front store needs to help out. Then we are reprimanded for not having projects completed. There used to be good teamwork within districts, now not so much. People in corporate seem to think all of our customers just want to hear slogans and that will keep them coming back.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

There is more to life that stock price. Yes $60 a share is nice, but what about the quality of your employee's life.

    Pros

    Cares about customers and employees

    Cons

    Do not make employees wait a year to move into management. The company lost many high quality, highly educated people by making them wait to be advanced.
