Company Culture

Like many companies its just a rah rah for show. Like Jr High motivation, while underneath is a current of callousness. Company keeps tight control of everything, there is no room to be a retailer. As one SM told me, if you succeed it's because they gave you a great plan. If you fail it's your fault for not executing properly. When the family sold control Walg stopped valuing employees.

Support from management

In part depends on the individual in management. In my case was nonexistent. As a member of mgt was stabbed in the back several times while trying to uphold policy. If there was trouble with an employee, even to the point of them refusing to listen to direction, the whole of SM backing us up was to walk away because it was a personal issue. You cant do your job when your boss wont enforce needed discipline.

Company Culture

pharmacists don't matter, patient care doesn't matter, only bigger profits. Not the company I joined 9 yrs ago

Teamwork

Poorly trained techs, high turnover, put new pharmacists in busy stores that they can't handle

Internal Communication

Make promises they don't honor. Out right lie

Gender Equality

many law suits over gender bias

Attitude towards older colleagues

I was told they wanted to replace me with "someone young and enthusiastic, like a new grad". I had 35 years experience
