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

Pros

The job itself has been satisfying, friendly staff generally.

Cons

Management restructuring and lower pay for the same work has ruined what was once a good place to start your career.

Advice to Management

You have to give respect in order to earn respect. If you don'r respect your management, then you can bet the quality of work you get in return will reflect that.

    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.
