    I have been working at CVS Health as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Not too many pros. As a software engineer they are working with good technology.

    Cons

    Very low morale in IT. Mostly contractors so no one feels ownership of the products. Everyone is highly overworked. Convoluted management structure with lots of overhead. I don't see how this place will survive without changes soon.

    Advice to Management

    Cut down of the contractor to employee ratio. Get more local managers in IT. Cut down the overhead of getting things done.

    Pros

    As a part time employee it is easy to change your availability and the tasks are pretty straightforward once you are trained.

    Cons

    They will hire you as part time and schedule you the maximum hours as a part time employee right before you hit the mark of a full time employee so they don't give you any benefits. Be prepared to work long hours with no benefits or paid vacation time.

    Advice to Management

    This company makes customer service difficult. They make the cashiers ask customers millions of questions and the check out process is slow and long. I would take away the need for a CVS card for sale prices and the long receipts.

    Pros

    experience a very large organization that is still focused on employee growth and development

    Cons

    Scottsdale AZ, Woonsocket RI - while near more cultural centers, not dynamic locations

    Advice to Management

    none, it is a very solid company with good management

    I have been working at CVS Health full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Some parts of CVS are great places to work (anything pharmacy-related), and have many smart people, and good working environments. I have heard from peers that the retail side is not that great. Compensation is competitive, and the hours are great (I am on the the corporate side). The town halls are also a really great way to interact with leadership.

    Cons

    They are a stingy company (eg. no complimentary coffee). It takes 3 months for benefits to START. And the health insurance offered is not that great (they only have high deductible plans for health insurance). They have large dividends to pay to shareholders, but they are continuously frugal to employees.

    Advice to Management

    Make employees want to come to work by making it a nice place to work. Be a little more generous to employees. You may be able to reduce turnover at the corporate and store environments.
