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

    Pros

    Have had some very nice co-workers over the years. This was once a very stable and happy place to work. Since the initiation of Rewire for Growth, which is just a nice way of saying that there will be terminations, it hasn't been the same.

    Cons

    Extremely low morale in the IT area. Unstable environment with upper management continually changing directions with outsourcing, off-shoring and reductions in force. Very unhappy environment for employees over the last 5+ years and steadily declining. It may just be the nature of the field now, but what was supposed to promote collaboration and streamline projects has only added extra layers of bureaucracy and created an incredibly toxic work environment. There is very little incentive, other than having a job, to continue employment.

    Advice to Management

    Employees are the bottom line, not you.

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

    Pros

    Flexible Schedule, Cashier>Photo>Head Photo in 1 Year. 7.25>9.50 in 1 year. Decent Vacation allotment. Decent Insurance.

    Cons

    Boring. Lots of trickle down corporate intervention. High Turnover. Lazy coworkers tend to get hired because you start at minimum wage. Hard to care about the job when you make that pay rate. Rarely is there something that doesn't need to be done.

    Advice to Management

    Allot enough hours to get the job done.
