      Run away if you want a career; stay if you just need the money

      Pros

      - Pays Ok - Ability to work from home; though this varies from team to team - Good benefits especially PTO for corporate employees - Very stable business model with no exciting changes

      Cons

      - Minimal Guidance & Training: Don't expect any guidance or technical resource supporting your role; management just wants you to start producing numbers for them instead of giving you development opportunities. Minimal training is given and the rest is on you to figure everything out. - Bureaucracy & Favoritism: Bureaucracy is all over the place here. There are probably more VPs in some departments than analysts which is laughable. If you want to survive here, kiss up the CORRECT higher-up will help you a long way. You will get fast tracked in your career by becoming their favorites; however if you are not one of those favorites, you are out of luck & will stay in your position probably forever. - No accountability: With the bureaucracy they had over here it's more important to make sure your boss & your boss's boss look good than doing actual work so people would make up numbers and nobody would want to do any implementation on anything. Plus nobody checks on whether your number is correct or not, so fake it until you make it (& nobody will ever make it)! - Siloed working environment: A lot of teams work in huge silos even sub-teams within the same org don't talk to each other. Nobody knows what's going on with the other group. This basically makes collaboration impossible.

      Pros

      Work life balance is top notch. Aces for work culture. Aces for SUPER diversity. At Express Scripts work is easy. Very easy to love what you do because leadership support is super amazing. As a matter of fact I can't express in words why I just love to go in to the office every day. Work from home is also very flexible.

      Cons

      I am so comfortable at this job I honestly can't think of any cons. FYI Express Scripts is not what it used to be a few years ago. This company, now a subsidiary of Cigna, is truly one of the best places to work in America and there are statistics to prove that.

      Not the best culture, limited growth

      Oct 15, 2019 - Sales Coordinator in Saint Louis, MO

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      The building/cafeteria are very nice and pleasant to work in, the people can be kind and the PTO is generous- 20 days total. The work from home policy is also great

      Cons

      Very strict hierarchy- your perceived worth is determined by your title. There are strict rules stating that you can't even apply for a new position without your manager's approval, and this limits upward growth. It seems like people's actions are motived by the desire to move to the next step on the corporate ladder, not by what is actually the best choice for patients and the company. Too many people with management titles that create unneeded processes.
