Organization is full of silos

  • Comp & Benefits
  • Work/Life Balance
  • Senior Management
  • Career Opportunities
Current Employee - Senior Director  in  Deerfield, IL (US)
Current Employee - Senior Director in Deerfield, IL (US)

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.

Disapproves of CEO

    Current Employee - Service Clerk  in  Bloomington, IL (US)
    Current Employee - Service Clerk in Bloomington, IL (US)

    Pros

    They work well with schedules and if you need some one to take a shift you can pull someone from a different floor

    Cons

    Managment has their favorites and they never give raises or if they do it takes for ever. Horrible employee lounge

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think you guys need to do a better job at doing evaluations. These surveys things take for ever to get back to us with feedback by that time i might not be working there anymore.

    No opinion of CEO

    I have held many positions therefore makes it difficult to describe.

    • Comp & Benefits
    • Work/Life Balance
    • Senior Management
    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Beauty Advisor
    Current Employee - Beauty Advisor

    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.
