I worked at Medco Health full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Good salary, benefits
Decent work environment
Generally good people

Cons

IT goes to great lengths to avoid any impact to "production" systems ... but it turns out "production" is nearly everything
Management often jumping around from crisis to crisis without staying focused on strategic priorities
Corporate Blame Assignment is a formalized process

Advice to Management

None really -- company has been sold and is being integrated into Express Scripts (a smaller company before the merger)

    I have been working at Medco Health full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, great salary, great people when it was Medco.

    Cons

    Lay offs lay offs lay offs. Never seen a company like Express Scripts. It's like they are trying to fail! Everyone is overworked to death! You are expected to work 7 days a week and at least 20 hours a day. All the old Medco employees want to package out. Never to see the company again! They fire the Medco employees with all the business knowledge and then ask the ones left to work all day and all nite and think this will get them success! Won't happen!!! Worst company ever!

    Advice to Management

    Fire the CEO. Fire upper mgmt or Express Scripts only has a few more years to live! Or is that the motive?

    I worked at Medco Health full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Working from home and a weekly pay check kept me at the company for a decade.

    Cons

    Customer Service - Too many "Active Listening" programs made each call torture...There were 30 points that needed to be hit to complete or pass a call. When Medco realized buying "Magic" was a mistake, they still made the reps use it, because they paid so much for the program.
    Most supervisors were curtious and understanding.
    Managed Care - Several managers have been there WAY too long, and have become unethical and just down-right nasty.
    Now they have fired everyone they condsidered was 'making too money.' And then had the nerve to tell them they could re-apply at the next hiring event, and start at $12 an hour.
    After 10 years, I was ready to get out. Looks like Express Scripts is just another low-wage job in a company that hands out jobs in Manilla. Great way to invest in America George Paz!
