The good and the bad at Walgreens.

Senior Financial Analyst (Current Employee) Deerfield, IL

ProsOne of the best reasons to work for Walgreens Health Services (WHS) is the profit sharing program. The Company will match a guaranteed $2 for every $1 an employer contributes to their 401(k) plan, up to the first 2%. This is the starting point and matches could far exceed these levels based on the Company's performance. Another good reason to work for WHS is that the Company is building new stores every day and this provides an abundance of job opportunities.

ConsSome of the downsides of working at Walgreens is that the Company provides more advancement opportunities for pharmacists than it does for non-pharmacists. Also, the Company does not provide tuition reimbursement for graduate school, only for those wishing to obtain a PharmD. Another downside of working for the Company is the lack of leadership by Senior Management.

Advice to Senior ManagementI would tell Senior Management that they need to do a better job at executing their strategies and focus more on growing their more profitable business, such as their mail facilities and their PBM. I have seen many times where Walgreens will lose a bid to a third party payor becuase of its lack of PBM aggressiveness and leadership in the marketplace. Walgreens focuses more on building new stores than it does at attracting members to its stores.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
