    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Boots full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Best place to work with ..learnt a lot ..had a great team at both lupset and chimes.

    Cons

    - Didn't get enough salary hike and a package.
    -in 2010, I was told that company will sponsor me working visa (Tier 2) and because of that I didn't find a new job .. in 2011, I was told that they can't sponsor the visa due to frequent changes in government rules. I would be there by this time if the company had sponsored me the visa or they would have informed me earlier (I could have joined other organisations) and I didn't have to return to my home country after spending lot of money in completing master's.

    Advice to Management

    Use carrot theories for right employees or don't commit something to employees which you can't give..if you do so then you are playing with someone's career. Anyway that was lesson for me .. Fortunately, I got a job in drug safety in my home country and got a chance to work with all big pharma companies.

Company Updates

  • With tens of thousands of people starting treatment for cancer while the country has been on lockdown, and many others having their treatment paused or delayed, access to remote, trusted cancer healthcare advice has never been more important. So we're delighted to be able to offer continued support from our Boots Macmillan Information Pharmacists with a free, online service, created in partnership with digital healthcare provider Livi and Macmillan Cancer Support, for those who are shielding, or would prefer to stay at home.

  • It has been 1 year since we switched from plastic bags to brown paper bags, removing over 900 tonnes of plastic from our store operations each year! The bags are made from unbleached, Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified recycled brown paper, which is printed with water-based inks so the bags can be easily recycled at home. Find out more about what we're doing to reduce our impact on the environment:
