    Pros

    coworkers are supportive, nice, and fun great benefits! 100% drug coverage is amazing flexible with scheduling, I generally got all my requests fulfilled upper management very friendly and personable, and very understanding weekly pay stubs Know your schedule very early in advance, for floating You pay for your own travels and get reimbursed, got a lot of credit card perks from that Very reasonable expectations from upper management Room for promotion if you are good Internal promotions

    Cons

    Most stores are great, a few pharmacies are a bit disorganized and hectic to work in, but that's expected. Floating is within entire BC, so sometimes you may end up somewhere very far and cold.

    Pros

    - family oriented - pays for your school - strong oracle database team - company parties - great managers, lots of role models in management

    Cons

    - pay is not competitive - all of the good developers have left or leave soon after getting there - having nobody smart around you demotivates you from learning or improving - IT is being outsourced, so programmers are left doing menial tasks supporting outdated, crappy systems - every time you ask for a salary bump, they give you an excuse about wage freezes - most new development tasks are not challenging, providing lots of time for you to make paper airplanes and testing them out in the parking lot

    Pros

    Good Company for work and life balance

    Cons

    it's too comfortable as employee, especially in IT department. people are not eager to learn, but wish to stay in their comfort zone. Good place for people if they just need a job, but good for people if they look for a career
