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

    Pros

    You rotated thru different jobs each day. Pay scale was great. Benefits package great. 2 weeks paid vacation.

    Cons

    It was taken of by express scripts. Your package to pack per hour were constantly increasing to a point that mistakes could be made. The scheduler did not have a clue how to schedule employee in the different job function. Some times they did not fill the job at all. The leads were forced to pick people for job functions.

    They laid off the whole second shift.

    Pros

    Some exceptional people to work with. Great benefits. Travel opportunities.

    Cons

    My VP (training) was building a hen house. Women were given preference on all projects and even though bonuses were not officially shared, it was apparent that the women of the department got higher bonuses than the couple of men. While hiring was not based on nepotism, 5 life long friends, who have worked together at different companies, all seemed to have come together under their VP friend.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Watch your hires. Be focused on real recordable results. Don't let others steal credit.

    I have been working at Medco Heath Solutions full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Was once a contender with a bright future.

    Cons

    Fell apart fast as upper management ran it into the ground trying to maximize shareholder value at the expense of key clients.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire sale to a competitor is not a brilliant career move but you know that already.

    Pros

    Medco was constantly trying to make the organization a great place to work by providing yearly surveys where we can rate our likes and dislikes as well as offer our suggestions. The company had many incentive programs and the salary offered was competitive.

    Cons

    At times it seems difficult for promotional opportunities

    Former Employee - Staff Pharmacist in Fort Worth, TX

    I worked at Medco Heath Solutions full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Medco had good hours with good pay and work shifts were flexible. Almost all the pharmacist and support staff were competent, especially the technicians. Company had some good ideas about the future of health care.

    Cons

    Supervisors and management (especially upper management) were only concerned about their jobs. Company wasted too much resources on duty replication and spent too much time on phone contacts to drs and patients trim down

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trim down, evaluate personell and programs

    Involve the IT dept into the business process, so it will be useful for them while documenting the requirements
