    Pros

    The benefits and the people are great.

    Cons

    There is not seniority. The pay is not worth your knowledge.

    Advice to Management

    Increase the pay rate of this position your 1st line supervisors take on more than most of the upper MGMT can handle.

    Pros

    If you're seeking experience in a call center, this company will provide enough that you can take those skills to another, better company.

    Cons

    No room for advancement. Minimal pay for maximum work. No raises. They will train you to handle multiple clients and use various software, adding to your work load, but don't expect to be compensated for the addition work you're taking on. Company claims to provide opportunities for advancement, but will in fact hire from outside for most positions. No balance between work and personal life.

    Advice to Management

    I'd leave some advice here for management if I thought for even a second it would make a difference, but it will not.

    I have been working at Express Scripts (More than a year)

    Pros

    Express Scripts offers great benefits and the management has an open door policy. I possessed an entry level position when I started and was still able to speak to one of our senior directors just by sending them an email. I was able to gain the experience that was needed in order to move forward on my career path,

    Cons

    Every company has its cons, my comment on the cons would be how difficult it is to progress within the company. They do promote from within but there are not many positions that are open and it takes time for one to become available. In addition, it is often hard to get days off when needed, there is no "sick time" granted unless you use your personal paid time off or FMLA. Overall I believe Express Scripts to be a great company to work for!

    Advice to Management

    I personally love the management here and I would definitely say to keep up the good work.

    Pros

    Express Scripts was one of my favorite employers. Working as part of a team, yet independently, you are able to choose your own schedule. As long as you have good attendance, adhere to your schedule, don't get involved in the drama of others, this is a wonderful place to work. Employees are treated fairly. You have the ability to earn extra money based on your performance. The atmosphere is energetic and friendly.

    Cons

    You have to be able to tune out the noise of co-workers. That's it. There was nothing I did not like about working at Express Scripts.

    Advice to Management

    The new management team is outstanding.

    Pros

    Cheap Healthcare and Performance bonuses. Set Schedule.

    Cons

    Management does not care about their employees whatsoever. They do not give you the proper tools to handle disgruntled customers, and there a lot of them. You have to sit there and be abused verbally by a customer with no way to really appease them.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of employees and your retention rate would be much better.

    I have been working at Express Scripts full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Liberal PTO, Health insurance premiums are based upon your salary range. Some VTO offered during over staffed hours. Ability to work from home.

    Cons

    If you or your kids get sick and you need to call out that day, it's an attendance impact. So even if you met all their metrics, you lose any bonus you may have been entitled to. AHT is unrealistic, if you are truly being a Patient Care Advocate. You can also lose your bonuses if you don't do enough conversions from retail to mail order. They train you in too many cores so you are mediocre in everything instead of an expert in one or two. I could go on and on about quality score reviews, just another way to prevent you from earning your bonuses. Their equipment is outdated and it's like pulling teeth to get replaced. I work from home so everytime there is a thunderstorm and power goes out, it takes awhile to reboot your system.

    Advice to Management

    Our value to you is based on your ridiculous metrics, seniority means nothing to you. No reward for loyalty. Listen to calls that are longer than 7 minutes. We are fixing problems that other PCA'S didn't because they are more concerned about keeping their average handle time low instead of first call resolution.
