    I worked at Walgreens full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Well respected brand, socially responsible, diverse, Walgreens University offers lots of remote training, many great practices implemented in last 5 years (annual performance reviews tied to employee-established goals, bonus plans commensurate with other large companies).

    Cons

    Old Boys Club leadership, top-heavy with repetitive corporate functions, change management is not appropriately used for company-wide program roll outs.

    Advice to Management

    Engagement is poor in certain areas for a reason.

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

    Pros

    Walgreens is a progressive company that has recognized same sex partner benefits for many years. They offer pretty good insurance and a decent profit sharing.

    Cons

    Pay is low despite company being one of the top in the country.
    Reduced hours means longer lines and more upset customers. New rewards card has made transactions take twice as long and twice as many upset customers. Bad move.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the rewards card. Customers hate it and employees hate it more.
