    I have been working at Injured Workers Pharmacy full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Growth Opportunities are abundant for those that go after them. The environment is nice, lots of great people to work with. Management genuinely cares about our team. We are making difference in patients lives daily. We do fun stuff together (at work) like team walks outside on the trails, pot lucks, birthday parties etc. Tuition Reimbursement is awesome! There is a gym on site, nothing fancy but in a pinch it works.

    Cons

    The work can be draining sometimes.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you have been doing for the past 6 months. Last year was a tough year, but I can feel it starting to change in the right direction and I like the town halls

    Pros

    Under our new CEO, we finally have a carefully considered, realistic plan for growth. We still need to execute, but the plan is at least sound.

    And while there have admittedly been a lot of changes over the last year, most were smart moves that helped to align department goals and objectives with overall company goals, and ensured that organizational functions were divided among the workforce as efficiently as possible.

    Cons

    Same cons as most employers: we'd all like more money, more influence, more room for advancement, more time off, and more recognition for our hard work. Some of those things have gotten much better over the last year. Some are still a work in progress. I don't think I can identify anything that's actually going in the *wrong* direction, though.

    Advice to Management

    Keep evolving. Keep giving the sales team all the tools we possibly can. Keep all departments focused on quality work, effective communication, and patient satisfaction.

    I worked at Injured Workers Pharmacy full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Freedom to run your own territory like it's your own
    Insurance is ok
    Holiday time could be better
    Vacation time is ok

    Cons

    Bonus structure that you have no control over . You can work your tail off and reach your script goals and still not make any money when others just walk into good territories, open no accounts and make major money . They need to rethink how they pay or they will end up losing a lot of good reps besides myself who gave blood sweat and tears for this company

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees !

    Pros

    The company really cares about the people they employ, they provide amazing benefits, paid holidays, and have a great wellness program. There is great opportunity to grow and employees are given the opportunity to express their ideas and concerns.
    The new CEO Michael Gavin has a great vision for the company. Since he took over the company, morale has increased, and employees are excited about the new projects he will be implementing.
    One of the best thing of working for IWP is feeling that the work you do is making a difference not only on the patient’s live but also your coworkers.

    Cons

    Company continues to change. Some people have issues adjusting and accepting change, therefore tend to get discouraged.

    Advice to Management

    Continue your efforts to communicate change to employees. Supervisors need training more so those that have been promoted within the company. A simple Great job! Can make the difference.

    I worked at Injured Workers Pharmacy full-time

    Pros

    The benefits are nice. Some fun activities from HR from time to time. Some of the people are amazing to work with.

    Cons

    Workplace politics are insane. Your efforts are hardly recognized. Complaints/concerns to HR aren't taken seriously.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management needs to be trained on how to communicate with their employees. Fear of losing your job is not a proper motivator.

    Pros

    There are no pros working for IWP

    Cons

    The disgrace of the bullies working there. Belittling is not acceptable in any work force, except IWP. Get a grip and move on.

    Advice to Management

    You need to learn to treat employees with respect and kindness whatever happened to your morals when you treat employees the way management does and HR hides behind closed doors.

    Pros

    I do not work here anymore.

    Cons

    Everyone in upper management. They are directly responsible for the demise of what was a great company.

    Advice to Management

    Don't screw your sales team by hiring people who don't know what they are doing. Most good managers and sales reps are gone due to mis- management.
