I have been working at Walgreens full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Interact with customers and peers from all walks of life, great opportunity to be a teacher to your employees. Figuring out new ways to drive sales and profit

Cons

Seems to be a huge disconnect between corporate management and field personnel. A lot of micromanaging and no consistency in how district management lead their stores in different parts of the company. Poor work/life balance. They ask A LOT out of store personnel but rarely give the proper tools to succeed.

Advice to Management

Stop listening to Wall Street and listen to your customers and employees. Those are the 2 groups of people that will make any business shine or fail. Start by being a leader in the industry like we use to be instead of following the status quo

    Upper management need to get out of their offices and learn what is happening in the DC. Attempt to mask the fact you cannot tolerate each other.
