    I have been working at Well Pharmacy full-time

    Pros

    Potential for great customer service
    Branding is on point and professional (far better than the cartoons)
    Excited about some of the developments they are making

    Cons

    Very little support on individual basis
    HR are very pro company and do not take a balanced view; not conducive to a fair working environment

    Advice to Management

    HR need a wake up call; they need to support staff better and listen to them.
    No point in asking for staff opinion when all you do is just put it back to branches and ask them to fix it.

    Clear vision for the future and good leaders in place. Outlook is good with new systems and procedures in place. Positive working ethos.

    Work pressure can be hard sometimes. Support staff are difficult to find when needed. Time and effort wasted on a couple of initiatives that did not show fruition.

    Advice to Management

    Lead from the front and when things go wrong, think of the money that was invested and could have been used for and on frontline staff.
