    I have been working at Walgreens full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The pay is competitive to the marketplace, particularly the bonus structure which is above average

    Cons

    Management direction and goal setting in the middle levels is poorly managed by HR. compensation is impacted by these decisions and no consistently across organization.

    Advice to Management

    Lack of long term vision, too much old school handing out of promotions when employees have not earned them. No career progresssion as promotions are just handed out.

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

    Pros

    My coworkers are good people. The company is stable. Our customers are loyal and friendly. Good support from your managers.

    Cons

    Slow to move up in the company. I am qualified to be a manager, but I get passed up by people who have less experience. The assistant manager position is being replaced by team leads, who do the same job with less pay.

    Advice to Management

    Sometimes the best people are working for you right now. Please look to promote them first.
