What is health insurance like at Walgreens Boots Alliance?

Pros

Great benefits including 401k match, discount stock purchases, health insurance and store discounts

Cons

Their idea is staffing is dangerous, creating an unsafe work environment. No respect for doctorate degree employees. Pharmacy managers are overseen by store managers without pharmacy experience. No support of loyal employees. Pharmacists are dispensable and only there because the store needs a license, not because they’re respected and valued. No bonuses for pharmacists anymore.

Advice to Management

Respect your pharmacists who are loyal and are doctors. Let them run the pharmacy autonomously, not directed by a front store employee. Staff in a safe manner.

Does Walgreens Boots Alliance have a pension plan?

Pros

Encouragement is given within the HR Shared Service to move around amongst teams and gain valuable experience. Great opportunities to liaise and network with visible high end managers. A company striving to maintain its original values from Jesse Boot, making plans to improve various diversity and equality factors throughout the business, provide perks such as discount, maternity support, childcare support, great pension etc. Driving forward the need for a big change to aid environmental issues, and to do their part. A company that gives more to its employees than most other retail based businesses.

Cons

The wage does not reflect the work done in my current role. Jobs roles across the HR Shared Service are considered the same regardless of what each team handle and deal with. The budget provided to the particular team I work in has not stretched to provide a reasonable amount of support for the work done. We have been given enough to replace those who have moved on.

Advice to Management

Immediate management level already work very hard and under a certain amount of pressure already. Keep up the great work in supporting your teams!
