I have been working at Walgreens full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Walgreens is a stable, growing company. There are many different jobs available, especially at the corporate office. Good company to work for.

Cons

The benefits are slightly lagging behind other companies. It is getting better as they are moving to Paid Time Off, which helps with the lack of company holidays.

Advice to Management

Provide more company holidays to be in line with other corporations competing for your employees. Also, rather than charging for the gym membership, you should give it for free and give incentives to use it to lower healthcare costs. Finally, jeans are a free way to improve your employee engagement...don't make the employees PAY to be able to wear them, at least implement jeans days every Friday.

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

    Pros

    For the last 3 years there were a lot of changes especially after the acquisition by Walgreens. The good thing is that all the big management is in Chicago so nobody watch your hours.

    Cons

    The bad thing are old tools, conservative management, lack of passion for technology. All creative work is outsourced so creative team is wasted on production. No place to grow for the individuals, until you are a shark and eat people while you climb up.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees!
