    I worked at Walgreens Boots Alliance

    Pros

    This used to be a great company to work for, it had a history and heritage to be proud of. It treats its people as people not just a number on an accountants spread sheet. It was focused on customers and being a community pharmacy ...but that's all gone now, it's all about paper trails and audits and nhs its targets and MUR targets ....how can we squeeze every penny out of services and flog our dead horses even more.

    Cons

    No culture , or values remainfrom what it used to be , it's run by bean counters , and vultures , who don't know what pharmacy means , it's just another retail business. They treat the staff as a cost , and a profit burden then wonder why customers are not receiving the level of service they deserve.
