I have been working at Walgreens

Pros

Strong financial footing, despite ESI setbacks
Pharmacist-centric organization - their value is understood and opportunities for career growth are available; not of other healthcare practitioners
Diversified healthcare services - lacking cohesive integration

Cons

Myopic senior management - focusing on script fills as the only meaningful means of revenue
Antiquated systems - especially computer/IT that holds the company back.
Resting on their laurels of success 1-2 decades ago - times are changing and they say they are able to change but no one does so.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Bring in new leadership from the outside - too many like-minded individuals who only know the Walgreens way.

    Pros

    Regular customers, close to home, mgt balances my schedule with what I need for my home life

    Cons

    Sometimes mgt expects too much of a person at once. The more knowledge you've got the more expected.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some managers have too many pets and those people often get by with doing nothing or very little.
