    Former Employee, more than 10 years

    Treat very capable employees with disrespect based on management goals to get ahead and receive big bonuses to cut staff

    Aug 25, 2014 - Training Specialist 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Decent benefits. Nice building to work in. Nice co-workers

    Cons

    The cost of living in St. Louis is much lower than many other sites, therefore salaries are low for higher cost of living cities. No training opportunities unless you are willing to do it on your own time and pay for it yourself. Unreasonable deadlines and no regard for work/life balance.

    Worst Company To Work For

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    They do ofter extensive training for all of the tasks they have you do

    Cons

    Has the lowest pay scale for the positions doing the same job in the area. Every mail order pharmacy in the area pays at least 2 dollars more an hour. Management has their own cliques and will blatantly ignore your needs as your production rate slips into the toilet, while they sit and gab with their 'friends' on the floor doing the same job as you. Then come back and complain about your numbers while their pet puppet friends walk around away from their desk just gabbing away not getting work done and nothing is done about it.

    Pros

    Pay and compensation package was pretty good; though it was a continuation from the Next Rx days.

    Cons

    Long hours and no respect for the work-life balance culture that was present at Next Rx.

    Decent Benefits, High-Pace

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Pay seems above average for the area. Medical benefits have tanked recently (high premiums, high deductible, etc) Dental and vision benefits are great Retirement benefits are outstanding (1-1 match for first 6% in 401K, 100% vested immediately) 5% discount on company stocks Yearly bonuses are significant and vary depending on pay grade (low level employees don't get any) Parking is secure and abundant Easily accessed via I-70

    Cons

    Tuition reimbursement hasn't increased in 4 years ($5500 a year) Need more emphasis on career development A lot of people complain of over work. You will work hard, and at the minimum, the full 40 hours a week Recent inclusion of excessive contract workers has led to a lack of expert knowledge in the IT department

    prefer not to say , do no want to ID myself, professional position

    Pros

    only if you have need for a job, there are NO PROS. Even mgmt is concerned that they are No 1 worse company to work for, having focus groups. Why do only a superficial job in finding out the problems? why not talk to all who have been there for yrs?

    Cons

    poor benefits (many benefits were cut for former Medco employees), including vacation time, pay for time off if out for medical leave, 100% vs 60-70%, retirement cash balance, bonuses unless you are in the upper echelons. The employees who do every day work are poorly rewarded. These employees make mgmt look good, but not rewarded. Constant turnover of poorly trained, skilled csrs or 'PCA's), who answer the phones every day. Many sound like they flunked out of 8th grand English 'no got'.... Poor communication from mgmt, constant chg in SOP's, no time to read emails (not allowed if you are talking to callers), micro-management of employees, metrics-metrics, no seniority anymore (have to get up at 12Mid St Louis time 365 days in advance to request to get a day off. They advertise they have paid holidays, but the employee can not get an extra day off during the wk if your normal day off is the paid Holiday.(no extra day); Higher paid employees pay more for health insurance to subsidize lower paid employees. (same insurance, why pay more ???) Monitors for those on the phone, with rules changing every 1-3 mos. Employees are scored down for petty things, esp if they do not like your voice quality. 'did you say please 3x?', did say their name 3x during the call? They pay people for this, reward them. If you disagree, complain--goes against. Phone quality is poor, (you have to talk to callers w/hearing challenges..what about that?), problems w/software, computers...No you do not want to work here. You will go home crying. They have also cut pay for many positions 10-25%, it shows in the quality of many employees. Many good ones are quietly leaving
