I worked at Express Scripts as a contractor (More than a year)

Pros

The IT group had a good attitude, the projects were interesting, and the office STL HQ office facilities were up-to-date. Also had a good worklife balance.

Cons

Too many separate dept PMO processes which resulted in spending too much time navigating through all the governance red tape instead of using that time to deliver quality scope on-time and within budget and building a stable scalable IT platform environment.

Advice to Management

Need to streamline the project & portfolio in-take, status reporting, and governance processes and get the CORRECT people with the right PM experience to drive it (not just a PMP cert--but have the practical/hands-on multi-year experience with ACTUALLY managing med-high complex projects or programs). Leadership need to listen to constructive input about what is TRULY required to deliver a scope initiative and have a faster PRO-ACTIVE decision turn-around response to that input instead of stalling to make a decision and then being re-active.
