    Pros

    Fast growing company, no worries about layoffs. Opportunities to be innovative, conceptualize and deliver a better way of doing things. Depending on your department, managers are generous with flex time. "To help people get the medicine they need to feel better and live well" is the company purpose statement, it's empowering to be a part of an organization working to help others.

    Lots of fun little perks, quality benefits, dedicated charity partners with the ability to participate and volunteer.

    Very smart and inspiring coworkers. I spend most of my days surrounded by very intelligent people.

    Cons

    High growth equals high turnover. If change freaks you out this is not the company for you. The project you are working on, manager you are working for will change, enough to make you a little batty. Work loads are always very high, there is more to do than you can manage so you have to be able to project manage efficiently and set boundaries for yourself.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to keep employees informed about the company's strategy and direction. With so many change both inside and outside the walls of Prime, it is helpful to stay informed.

    Pros

    Good Co workers, good benefits package lots of other during peak season

    Cons

    Lacking in management department. Supervision tends to do a lot of facoring, beat around the bush thing. Communication between worker and supervisors are really lacking. They tend to not want to heat what you say. If you tell them what you think or say the wrong thing they tend to make you feel the pressure. Too much micro managing. I get that some micro managing is ok but when you want to know everything is bit to much. Example going to the bathroom. Career advancement is hard since you have to be in your current position for a year. If they notice people are leaving they make sure that you can't move up because supervisors didn't plan well.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees and help them grow. Communication needs to be specific and to the point. Lift the 1 year rule for people who want to move around the company.

    Pros

    Prime provides flexible scheduling, has an excellent benefits package including 401K, 4 weeks vacation, medical and dental insurance from day one of employment. They also have huge growth opportunities within the company.

    Cons

    The only disappointing thing about the company is that you are stunted to the department you are hired in for one year. You can move around within that department, but if another opportunity comes up with higher pay that you are qualified for, your supervisor will turn it down for you if you have not been in your current department for a year.

    Advice to Management

    Change the policy that you have to be in a department for one year before allowed to accept another job posting.

    Pros

    Pay is pretty good. Not much else to write about on pros.

    Cons

    No support from managers and leaders. No chance of advancement. Much back stabbing from co-workers. Not a good working environment. Would not recommend.

    Advice to Management

    Help people move into different jobs. Don't just look out for yourself.

    Pros

    Benefits, coworkers, access to filtered water.

    Cons

    I just saw on another post that someone talked about micromanagement at this company to the point of wanting to know when you were going to the bathroom. This happened at my location to at Edina. That is just plain weird. They stopped doing it after a while when a pregnant woman complained. To me its common sense to just not do it in the first place.

    Advice to Management

    Time for all of us to find another job. Look up the word e-m-p-a-t-h-y in the dictionary.
