I have been working at Walgreens full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Friendly co-workers and management; pays the bills; relatively stress-free job; the work you do is appreciated

Cons

Lack of performance based raises (2.5% across the board does not make me want to do more); customers at times (it's retail, you have to expect it); WAY too much bureaucracy (corporate does not understand how stores actually work); low employee morale, especially with management restructuring. This went from a potential career path to just a job.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The store-level employees are an intricate part to the company. Cut back the bonuses you are writing yourselves and show some appreciation to people who help drive the sales that write your paychecks.

    I have been working at Walgreens full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good coworkers. Potential to move up in the company.

    Cons

    Cutting costs in too many ways for no reason. CEO does not seem to care about the employees. Corporate expects way too much from employees and does not give enough.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to and look at the little guys for a change. We all work very hard whether or not it's shown.
