    I have been working at Express Scripts full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Health benefits retirement program base pay package . Many good people and friendships made over time. High turnover rate means plenty of jobs available at all times

    Cons

    Horrible company to work for. They only care about numbers. Will spend millions to watch key strokes but forget about getting a new mouse pad. Don't make your numbers you get fired. Make your numbers and goals will be increased next year. Try to practice pharmacy or help a patient and you will quickly find this behavior is discouraged by short sighted management

    Advice to Management

    You would find people far more productive with a small carrot. Use the biggest stick you can find and people will always find a way around it at the expense of the company. Ignorance will come back to bite you in the end

    I have been working at Express Scripts full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Still have a job. Good 401k plan.

    Cons

    Pay freeze. Insurance premiums increased with higher deductible. You are expected to output over 100 scripts an hour or be put on a probation program. Quality is suffering, which hurts the patients. Stress is very high. Getting to the point where I don't want to go to work. We also had a new hire group start with 20 people, we have 5 left that made it. I read that Express is planning on hiring 1,500 people for their St Louis plant. They better hire 5,000 people to start, maybe by the end of probation they will have the 1,500 people they claim to be looking to hire. Be ready to work like crazy for a sub-par paycheck.

    Advice to Management

    Get realistic expectations. We are human beings, not machines. We helped you get that huge bonus, now take care of the little guy and give us a piece of the pie too.
