I have been working at CVS Health full-time for more than a year

Pros

This is the second time in my life that I wake up and can't wait to get to work. I love the company, and my job.
The corporate culture is sensitive to employee performance and genuinely committed to personal growth and success. There are numerous opportunities to learn more through the internal CBT system, LearnNET. The people are all open and friendly, and always open to new members, and will at least listen to new ideas, even when they are already committed to another plan.

Cons

can be confusing to navigate the culture
can be frustrating learning the rules of how to interact
remote management can result in managers being out of touch with whats going on, on the ground where the front line staff are.
There is very little tolerance for expressing any judgement. Even a wrong tone of voice can get you a meeting with your manager/director/VP depending on your level. This can be frustrating. However, there is always an opportunity to change and improve, and anyone will help you to understand and adapt.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

having your manager in a different location can be a bit frustrating. sometimes it feels like my manager is out of touch with my responsibilities' challenges. as a result, I can never be sure if I have their support in my decisions. In addition, when my actions are comments on by others, sometimes, my manager jumps to a conclusion rather than ask me about the issue. My manager is inconsistent in the support, which make me hesitate to act, sometimes.

    Current Employee - Pharmacy Technician in San Antonio, TX (US)

    I have been working at CVS Health part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great for getting some experience as a Pharmacy tech or a new grad pharmacist. Good employee-employee communication and conflict resolution strategies.

    Cons

    The pharmacists are not treated so great, especially if you are the PIC. Pharmacy Technicians pay is below par. Limited Tech duties, like, company policy says that techs cannot reconstitute.

    Current Employee - Store Manager
    Current Employee - Store Manager

    I have been working at CVS Health full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    wages for management are fair, there are over 7000 locations to chose from. Bonus structure is also fair.

    Cons

    work is piled on but there is no one to do the work. most stores are now considered "minimal hours" stores. that means a manager and a cashier only. Manager must do all tasks on the floor while cashier runs around up front trying desperately to get all the other work done. P&L at stores are very strong yet hours keep getting trimmed while upper management reaps the benefits

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    work in your stores for 1 week. Then come back and tell us how we can do all the planograms, resets, price changes, truck, push, scans while trying to wait on 3000 customers a week
