Approves of CEO

I worked at Shoppers Drug Mart full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

The culture at corporate office will provide you with real life experience with how NOT to treat employees and co-workers. The executive are dominated by bullies who encourage a command and control style of leadership; discouraging empowerment and constructive debate when their ideas are challenged. It provides a real eye opener of how not to build staff engagement.

Cons

Poor career opportunities, poor leadership, no training budget and very little mentoring and coaching.

Advice to Management

Make changes to your executive leadership.

    Pros

    If you have a brain and are willing to invest, there are opportunities

    Cons

    Sadly there are many at Shoppers who are driven by ego, bully tactics, and politics. This fundamentally is a huge achilles heal for the organization and will continue to reduce the companies ability to become -- good.

    Advice to Management

    Seriously look at the mediocrity of your senior and middle management. Until the Executive management take a hard look at their talent the company will continue to languish. Take a hard look at your CIO!

    Pros

    They are very relaxed, and we can have fun at work. Pay isn't too bad, I enjoy the way things are run.

    Cons

    Working til 12, they like to think the staff steals so cameras are always facing the staff not the customers.
