    I have been working at Walgreens full-time

    Pros

    Pay is very competitive, benefits are ok, job security if you perform well.

    Cons

    Not enough help, cost cutting is too rapid which is contributing to low morale and increased complaints from customers about poor service. Also, opportunities to move up out of service clerk positions are harder to come by now, and even if you make it to the Shift Lead position, you will be used and abused, and have little chance of moving up past that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to what is going on in each individual store, instead of assuming every store in a particular "region" is the same. Do more frequent anonymous surveys to get a feel for employee morale and how you could increase it.

    I have been working at Walgreens full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Opportunity to advance if willing to relocate.

    Cons

    Benefits getting worse yearly. Major disconnect between upper management and most workers. Workers completely unvalued.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Return this company to the days of caring about employees instead of thinking of them as an expense.
