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

Pros

Walgreens healthcare vision, broad scope of healthcare services, bringing on new, diverse talent, expansion plans, stock price

Cons

Still thinks like retail
-- hard to attract and keep high quality corporate talent with retail benefits and vacation policies
-- needs to have longer-term vision in terms of organizational design, business strategies, etc (too much focus on current quarter, current year)

Advice to Management

Get out of the weeds and hire the right talent to drive the company -- giving them the people, technology and other resources to do it. Now we are a global company, we need to start acting like it.
