    I have been working at Express Scripts full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Ample opportunity to move within company; vertically, laterally. Very intelligent, driven employees. Pays well. Fast pace environment. The benefits are decent as well.

    Cons

    Fast pace environment. Not afraid to overwork employees and replace those who burn out. Very intense work ethic, combined with little life-work balance.

    Pros

    A very great experience working here with multiple teams great number of people.

    Cons

    It's always a rush here, not much to get ahead on the career front. A lot of overtime is needed. Weekends/Holidays more look like working days sometimes.

    I worked at Express Scripts

    Pros

    Depends on the group, but very flexible with a work schedule.

    Cons

    Letting go some very valuable staff members all in the name of budget cuts and then doubling up the work load for those that are left. Moving a lot of positions to St. Louis. No loyalty.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    take the time to listen to your employees
