I have been working at Express Scripts (Less than a year)

Pros

Good amount of 'vacation time', if you are allowed to take it.
Nice work environment at headquarters.
Starbucks and cafeteria on site.

Cons

Company is very slow to respond. IT is very slow. IT service tickets have taken as long as 45 days to complete.
At least 10 people are CC'd on every email when subject probably only applies to a few.
Collaboration with coworkers is discouraged.
Unrealistic expectations.
Meetings, meetings, meetings, and more meetings.
Management won't give guidance about what they want.
Need to learn to read minds.
A lot of talking negatively about people behind their backs.
Complaining about people not showing up during snow storms or when sick then the next day talking about how they understand the need to stay home. Which is it?

Advice to Management

Work on the IT process.

    I have been working at Express Scripts full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    No nights, limited weekends, no holidays.

    Cons

    No confidence in upper level management, very poor communication, management has not earned my respect. Accomplishment based solely on rate of order processing. Doesn't matter if you do a good job or a poor job, the faster you turn an order over (albeit correct or still having errors), as long as you can turn over orders quickly, you get brownie points. Pharmacists are not respected for their roles and abilities. I feel like I am being used rather than utilized.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time focusing on patients and employees, and less time on trying to please the stock holders and investors. Sadly, they are like every other corporation in the very ill country.
