    I worked at Express Scripts full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The pay was good, great bonus system, and for the most part, the work was fast-paced and interesting.

    Cons

    The calls come in back to back. If you have a bad call, you have about 5 seconds to shake it off.

    I have been working at Express Scripts

    Pros

    At times you can meet nice peers.

    Cons

    Over worked, under paid. Work load not shared. People with same training a barely doing anything while a few do it all. They have firing seasons often, so minimal employees about all year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make people want to work here instead of having to work here.

    I have been working at Express Scripts full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    If you live in NJ there are none, the PROS all live in St Louis and the eastern liberals are just scum that need to be squashed.

    Cons

    George Paz, the board of directors, and all of the C level executives. CALIBRATION! Incompetent leaders! Express Scripts believes managers can manage anything, they fire their SMEs and replace them with managers. This is the only company that hires consultants to manage employees ... Disgusting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice is to the shareholders, fire the management before they are brought up on FWA charges.

    I have been working at Express Scripts

    Pros

    The company is progressive and innovative. Helping patients and clients obtain life saving medications.

    Cons

    Unrealistic expectations, always wondering if the facility is going to close due to merger, company doesn't care about employees or patients. Money is the bottom line.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be upfront with your employees. Stop outsourcing all of your jobs.

    I worked at Express Scripts full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Benefits are decent, people are wonderful.

    Cons

    Lousy work environment. Everyone is looking to go elsewhere. Direction is constantly changing, total choas. Review goals for the year are never available until late in the year. Last year I received mine on October 31st. I had four managers in twenty months.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to get your act together. The best resource you have is running for the Exit signs. This could be a good company but the fact that the tools needed to forecast and plan work are Excel tools held together with band-aids. No wonder this is the worst company to work for. Well earned title.

    I worked at Express Scripts full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good work experience, good coworkers and good benefits

    Cons

    HR was horrible. I needed to go out of town for a family members funeral and HR had me get a program from the funeral. When I returned the program to her she asked "how do I know this is your relative.?" It was absurd. Nobody should be treated that way when a family member has passed away. Have to plan far in advance to take PTO. High turnover.
