I worked at Express Scripts full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

I met some great people

Cons

There is no work life balance

Advice to Management

The work load is too much for every employee. Nothing is ever good enough for management. Many mistakes are made by all departments due to overwhelming work loads. There are many blackout days so even though PTO is earned, it's difficult to use. People hesitate to use their PTO because digging out of e-mails and issues is nearly impossible upon returning to the office. Then there are others that have maxed out their PTO so they will use one day and just work from home. It's no way to live.

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

    Pros

    Great group of people to work with in NJ. Flexibility since much of management is constantly on the road.

    Cons

    Focus is in St Louis, No loyalty to company by most employees. Rough organization to respect. People in NJ just waiting for the next wave of severance notices.

    Advice to Management

    It's not all about the dollars and cents, there are hard working people that need to be appreciated even in the littlest of ways. Medco managed to create large profits and treat their employees like they were part of the success and future.

    "No direction for senior leadership, unrealistic expectations, and don't bother unless you want to live in St Louis."

    I worked at Express Scripts full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    None. Working for this company was horrible.

    Cons

    Every day hung over the employees the possibility of layoffs...if you worked anywhere other than in St Louis. Direction is supposed to trickle down, giving employees no view into the big picture of their responsibilities...resulting in shoddy Frankenstein-like solutions. The timelines on projects are nothing short of ridiculous, and the attitude is to get things implemented and worry about whether it runs or is correct later. One day, there will be major compliance implications. Oh, and "pharmacy that goes farther" is the most horrible grammatical error in a slogan I have ever heard. It makes me embarrassed to have worked there.

    Advice to Management

    Get a clinical person to run things. A patient advocate. Not a bean counter who does stock price acrobatics to keep things looking good when they're not.
