I worked at Express Scripts full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

As long as they keep the building in Franklin Lakes, NJ, the location is great if you live in Northern NJ or NY.

Cons

When ESI bought Medco, they decided to use most of the Medco systems but keep their processes. Over the years Medco grew and improved and now ESI has taken them back to the dark ages. People are over-worked, others are being let go, and many of those who chose to stay have been demoted. Morale is at an all time low. Supplying reports to senior management is NOT more important than fixing problems. Patching problems is NOT more important than getting to the root cause.

Advice to Management

Listen to the people who know the systems. Stop talking about a work life balance when you don't give it to your employees. Bring back the old benefits.

    I worked at Express Scripts full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    You get out of the house and don't need to watch TV to pass the time. You might be able to pay some of your bills with the blood money they squeeze out of their clients

    Cons

    Management has no clue it's 2013 not 1993. Management is more concerned with squeezing money from its clients than providing actual drug coverage. Consultants are treated better than employees and when you try to say, hey this guy doesn't know his stuff - you are attacked and complained about and the consultant continues to produce sub standard work (which btw is dangerous because they do distribute life saving drugs)

    Advice to Management

    How about reward work and excellence, not consulting BS
