    I worked at Medco Health full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    I worked for Medco, the company recognize the staff potential; pay was great. Upper management were tangible.

    Cons

    After the merger with Express Script, I was laid off; but it's understood, because company's are known to reorganize the departments during a merger, to eliminate duplicate position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I had the best supervisor toward the end, he was very observant, open to discuss issues and encourage your growth.

    I worked at Medco Health full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Alot of opportunites for advancement. Great perks prior to the acquisition by Express Scripts. Not sure I would be able to handle customer service however.

    Cons

    middle management and supervisory staff have no checks and balances. They pretty much do what they want without having to be fair across the board.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The view is Express Scripts is very robotic when it comes to the views of their employees. Adopt some of the old Medco ways.
