    Current Employee - Pharmacist ( Relief ) in San Diego, CA

    I have been working at MSN part-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Can travel to different areas of the state, and see a variety of people to work with, as well as all types of clients..making for a well-rounded experience.

    Cons

    Have to be extremely flexible...as each company has different rules and requirements...Additionally all the different protocols are a challenge to the safety factor,, eg a clerk may bag a prescription and dispense to a patient a prescription before it has been checked and is finally ready at one location vs another where that could never happen. A pharmacist in this specialty has to be extremely cautious and try to be equally efficient as well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I try to be seamless when I cover for the " regular " pharmacist..and represent myself and my company with the highest of standards. including doing more than what is asked of me. I always like to spoil the clients with a caring attitude that comes through and therefore get asked back a lot..One client asked me back to cover for seven straight years until the tech who had been working there attended then graduated from pharmacy school, and ended the need.

    Outstanding staffing; unclear goals

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at MSN as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Highly professional and skilled coworkers committed to top-notch content for users. Work generates impressive exposure and exciting potential. With few remaining opportunities for experienced journalists, this one had been promising.

    Cons

    Management frequently changes direction. Inconsistent commitment to QA due to conflicting Microsoft priorities and unclear corporate goals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hiring employees directly, articulating clear goals and showing loyalty and appreciation for top-notch work would go a long way toward maintaining quality for consumers.

    Pros

    Resources are so limited you will get the chance to do a range of tasks yourself - inadvertently a good way to get experience and broaden your skillset

    Cons

    Management have no regard for employees' work life balance, you are most likely to work yourself into the ground for little or no reward.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more attention to user experience, less on protecting your own job
