Pros: decent home/work balance, decent health benefits, 401k
Cons: substandard wages, high expectations without appropriate compensation, negative upper management.
Work days are busy with little to no down time, which is good. I have been able to learn a lot, and the company encourages promotions from within. I knew very little about pharmacy before I worked there, but have been able to learn a great deal. The management is supportive of new ideas that could improve productivity, and encourages this kind of communication.The co-workers are awesome and everyone seems to have a great desire to help patients. Upper management tends to be quite cynical and negative. The pay scale is unbalanced with very knowledgable employees making significantly less money than new temps coming into the building; mostly due to a shift in the hiring wages. The reviews are ineffective in giving appropriate raises to hard working efficient employees with $.10 and $.20 raises being the most common. The time demands are high, but they do allow for personal time off and don't seem to have much trouble with allowing employees to balance their work time with family time. Most departments are significantly short staffed which causes a lot of burn out and frustration with work loads and demands. The company spends a lot of money on things that make them look good in the media and with colleagues, while the employees would be better served with higher, more appropriate wages and more paid time off. The company has a significant amount of family and friends of family being promoted over employees who are more qualified. They provide weight rooms, media rooms, ping pong tables, training classes, lunch vendors, exercise classes, weight loss programs, etc... This is nice, but most employees are in high demand for their time; therefore are not able to enjoy these perks, and again would be better served to have higher wages, and/or more paid time off.
